Night Tripper

Night Tripper (2012) is a production by Ingri Fiksdal, Ingvild Langgård and Signe Becker.

At the webpage of Bastard, the international performing arts festival of Trondheim, the following, among other things, is written about Night Tripper:

"Night Tripper has found ideas from Voodoo culture, where staying to long in an intersection may make the true believers 'divine horsemen'.

Choreographer Ingri Midgard Fiksdal, composer Ingvild Langgård and stage designer Signe Becker challenge the idea about the nature as animist, as a place of healing and destructive forces when the ancient mythology meets modern daily life. Dream and reality merge into an otherworldly, but yet tangible story. Night Tripper starts during the hour of dawn and takes the audience into the dark of the night. The audience uses seven performers, a number of instruments, countless installations and art world, and a local choir."
