Nedas Paradis

“Nedas Paradis” is working title for an interactive installation under development. It is a project for children with the theme of refugees, a collaboration with scenographer and visual artist Terese Arildsdatter Riis. We are making a space with sensors that will present the young audience with contrasting moods like vacuum/breathe freely, safe/unsafe, home/homeless. The room will react to sounds and movements. We want to give the audience some tools to understand the situation of refugee children. Some of the questions that guide the work are “what creates the feeling of belonging/not belonging?” and “how do children deal with deportation, and the feeling of extreme personal and cultural loneliness that deportation  creates” We are currently working on a pilot, and the main project premiere is planned some time in the autumn 2017. The project is financially supported by Komponistenes Vederlagsfond, Statens Kunstnerstipend and Norsk Kulturråd Forprosjekt Scenekunst.
