Running time: 70 minutes
Two sisters explore how to overcome loss and death with wit, strength, and affection. Alongside documentary interviews of their aunts and uncle, Sisters - 11 Years Later mixes media and metaphor, blends humor with pathos, and fuses movement with spoken dialogue. You will not only become intimately acquainted with this family from northern Norway, but surely recognise your own family here, too.
Since its debut in 2014, this contemporary dance performance about family, love, and mortality has played to more than 25,000 audience members throughout Norway, Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, the Czech Republica, and Canada. These performances as part of Voila! Europe Theatre Festival 2018 is the UK premiere.
While a kind of sequel to Haugen Productions´ first duet from 2003, Sisters - 11 Years Later stands on its own, exploring the dynamics of two generations of sisters, and how they deal with loss and death with wit, strength, and affection. Episodic in form, Sisters alternates between dance solos and duets performed by siblings Liv Hanne Haugen and Anne Katrine Haugen; as well as documentary interviews with their aunts and uncle (in Norwegian with English subtitles).
