After two extraordinary Dark Ecology Journeys in 2014 and 2015, we are very happy to announce the third and final journey which will take place from 8–12 June 2016 in Northern Norway and Russia.
While the previous journey took place as the sun showed itself for the last time that year, this final journey will take place during the Arctic summer, with sun for most of the day and night. The programme includes the presentation of new commissioned works by Justin Bennett
, Dmitry Morozow
, Signe Lidén
and Espen Sommer Eide
, Cecila Jonsson
and others, as well as lectures, discussions, walks, and performances. More information about the programme will be announced shortly.
