**Celebrated Norwegian choreographer Ingri Fiksdal returns to the CAC after her 2015 performance, Night Tripper**
With the Diorama performance series, Fiksdal stages particular views of natural and urban landscapes in diﬀerent cities and contexts.The word diorama often refers to a three-dimensional model of a landscape, such as displayed in museums of natural history. Another use of the word is for the French diorama theatre invented by Louis Daguerrein1822, where the audience were sat watching big landscape paintings transform. through skillfully manipulated light, sound eﬀects and live performers.
In the Diorama performances, Fiksdal uses choreography as a lens, through which she alters or interferes witha particular landscape and its context. The performances reflect on the passing of time, on the slow change in landscape, and scenography as an ecological practice of bodies both human and non-human.
The music is composed by Norwegian musican Jenny Hval and noise artist Lasse Marhaug, and shift from drone-like echo, to a punctured, industrial noise, to indecipherable whispering voices drifting into to the landscape.
“ …Hypnotic, swaying movements reminiscent of the insistent roll of the tide. Clad in dazzling sequinned capes that pick up and reflect the colors of the landscape, (the performers) seem simultaneously alien, and entirely of this place.” - The State (UK)
Duration: 60 minutes without intermission
