Friday 19 May 2017 & Saturday 20 May 2017

Rotterdamse Schouwburg, Schouwburgplein 25, 3012 CL Rotterdam (NL)


Poolnacht (Polar Night) is a cinematic and musical trip into endless spaces. The performance is a reflection of a real-life journey made by five artists into the most northerly area of Europe. The disorienting snow-covered landscape is visualised in Poolnacht. What is the meaning of time if the sun never rises? How do you find your way in utter darkness? The group Post uit Hessdalen searches for answers against an enchanting backdrop. Festival star soprano Claron McFadden adds fascinating experimental sounds to the performance. You can visit the English version of Polar Night at 17h00.
