At its Facebook page, Visjoner Teater writes the following, among other things, about Spor - Svalbard Movements:

"Spor – Svalbard Movements is a performing arts project developed and created especially for the unique Taubanesentralen in Longyearbyen.

With this production, Visjoner Teater wants to promote several female characters who took part in establishing the Svalbard society. Their stories deserve to be emphasised when retelling Norwegian Arctic history.

The script has been developed freely based on stories and texts from interviews, diary entries, and books by and with Wanny Woldstad, Christiane Ritter, Ellen Dorthea Nøis, Bertine Johansen and Helge Ingstad.

Juni Dahr has been at Svalbard several times, doing research to develop the production. With the musicians Tore Brunborg and Per Oddvar Johansen, she has created a musical universe where female stories and fates step forth."
