Taking their inspiration from superheroes and ordinary superhumans, choreographers Kristin Ryg Helgebostad and Ingeleiv Berstad explore the topic of expertise. For the children of the 80s, the world has been a remarkably safe and stable place, but this rosy depiction is showing cracks and the foundation is starting to shake beneath their feet.
In ‘Know Hows’, a landscape is created in which different layers of aesthetics, stories and outlooks come together to make a universe in the intersection between collapse and hope. Old knowledge and new skills can go from being useless to useful in an instant. Concepts of normality are dissolved and expanded in an amazing show where the rules of the game are constantly changing and superpowers can arise.
Know Hows has its world premiere 14 February in Studio Bergen, Bergen, Norway.
