Premiere 14+15th of October 2022, The Norwegian National Opera 

CODA Oslo International Dance Festival 

Gigant takes the audience on a journey into a world inspired by both sci-fi and mythology, a bestiary with trolls and jötunn, groke, golem and other enormous beings – powerful yet also with a sense of loneliness and sorrow about them. The six dancers traverse the stage like an Oskoreia, the myth of a roaring horde made ut ouf drunks and scammers riding the skies; too low to go to heaven, yet too good to end up in hell.  The dancers use their body parts as pieces of a jigsaw puzzle and give life to creatures far beyond our imagination – performed to a crackling soundscape that is evidence of tremendous forces at play.
