Dikt i Piano* (Poetry in Piano)

Dikt i Piano* (Poetry in Piano) (2009) is a collaboration production made by Dans & Toner and Liv Bjørgum.

At the webpage of Dans & Toner the following, among other things, is written about Dikt i Piano:

"In Dikt i piano the meeting between a poet and a composer is experienced. Words and tones melt into one another and create beautiful, exciting, sad and funny moments. The poems are about all of us, and the music underlines the words as well as standing alone. Dikt i piano is performed in an unpretentious manner by the artists. The performance switches between dialogue, stories told and commented upon, quotation of poetry, interaction with the audience, song, poetry and music, just music, just poetry."

Dikt i piano was performed five times in Oslo and Akershus the autumn of 2011.

Supported by The Fund for Performing Artists.
