Choreography by Guro Nagelhus Schia & Vebjørn Sundby
In November 2018 Nagelhus Schia Productions co-produced and collaborated with visual artist Anastasia Isachsen. Together they created and premiered the audiovisual spatial installation DAWN at Staro Riga Festival of Lights. DAWN reached an audience of over 500 000 during the 4 day festival.
DAWN is an interdisciplinary poetic piece about our eternal search for meaning and the sublime. Legendary Latvian composer Peteris Vasks was commissioned for sound, with choreography and dance by Guro Nagelhus Schia and Vebjørn Sundby.
Thank you to Staro Riga Festival of Lights director Diana Civie, to Anastasia Isachsen for the invitation to collaborate, and all the audiences who visited the installation.
