NORTHERN SOUL

Varanger Festival 2014
OPENING CONCERT

Northern Soul

Northern Soul opened Varangerfestivalen in Northen Norway, touched the audience to tears and received a spontaneous standing ovation of a full hall.

Northern Soul is exactly what the title suggests: it is an expressive, philosophical and emotional trip into a Northern soul – its identity, search and homecoming.

Collaborative creation between artists from music, contemporary dance, film and visual art resulted in a big production with a band, string orchestra, choir, dance and exquisite scenography of two stages, three projection screens and elegant light design.
