THE ERA OF NO TALENT RISING
A dance theater show about truth vs online branding, that combines aggressive social media use, mocumentary style film and amazing choreography!
Because somewhere between the latest cat video and the news of Trump’s Presidency the truth became subjective - We The Nordic Beasts decided to change the life as we know it to become popstars. We succeeded, and now we will not only perform Europe’s most epic stage show ever, but also share our inspirational story of success. There is only one but: None of it ever happened. But what then? Is reality worth anything?
The show is a co-production of The Nordic Beasts, Dansehallerne, Dansearena Nord and Danse Festival Barents. The work is supported by the Danish Arts Council, Nordic Culture Fund, Bikubenfonden and Knuudhøjgaard Fond.
Research supported also by Kokko1721 residence.
