In the Garden of Arctic

Musikalsk historiefortelling og geopetiske vandringer

Norsk tekst

Utforsk skjulte perler, fortellinger og tradisjoner gjennom geopoetiske vandringer og musikalsk historiefortelling i sommer. Opplev nærheten til både naturen og kulturen, fra oss i nord til resten av Europa.

De geopoetiske opplevelsene omfatter guidete turer, samtaler og personlige refleksjoner med den italienske geopoeten Davide S. Sapienza og Benny Sætermo fra Nordland nasjonalparksenter, samt musikalske historier hvor Davide lar sine tekster samhandle med den eminente norske kontrabassisten, Mats Eilertsen.

De har funnet inspirasjon i Nordlands majestetiske natur og rike kultur, med en fast tro på at naturen ikke bare omgir oss, men også kommuniserer, oppdrar, og speiler våre innerste aspekter.

Vi inviterer deg også til 'War Travels' fire teaterstykker, som handler om mennesker dypt berørt av krig. Gjennom storslått scenekunst, gripende musikk, og poetiske uttrykk, utforsker vi motstanden, troen, og de små øyeblikkene av håp.

Turnerute og billetter blir lagt ut i løpet av mai.

English text

Join us on a unique journey of discovery. Explore hidden gems, stories and traditions through geopoetic walks and musical storytelling this summer. Experience the closeness to both nature and culture, from us in the north to the rest of Europe.

The geopotic experiences includes guided walks, conversations, and personal reflections with the Italian geopoet Davide S. Sapienza and Benny Sætermo from the Nordland National Park Centre, as well as musical stories where Davide lets his texts interact with the eminent Norwegian double bassist, Mats Eilertsen.

They have found inspiration in Nordland's majestic nature and rich culture, firmly believing that nature not only surrounds us but also communicates, educates, and reflects our innermost aspects.

We also invite you to "War Travels" four theatrical performances, who deals with people deeply affected by war. Featuring grand stagecraft, stirring music, and poetic expressions, we explore the resistance, beliefs, and small moments of hope.
