    More about SVALE, RØYK OG SØRGEPIL

    Biologist Jens Haga leads you through the graveyard. He’s visible, hidden, omnipresent; just like the flora and fauna. From within your headphones, his voice speaks of the mystery of life - how it appeared, and how hard it is to tell what’s alive and what’s dead in a cemetery. In between the graves giant insects and mammals emerge in a silent movie of elusive tableaux. The cemetery workers are digging and watering, digging and watering. Are they simply weary from work? Or are they mourning? 

    Co-production: Gravferdsetaten i Oslo, Dramatikkens hus og Galleri NoPlace.

    Supported by Norsk Kulturråd, Oslo Kommune og Dramatikkens hus.
