New piece by HITYAMAC

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Fri, 09/26/2014 - 16:24

For the finissage for the exhibition “Dynamiske konstanter” in an old factory building in Ytre Arna outside of Bergen, HITYAMAC will perform a new site-specific piece.

HITYAMAC is short for “have i told you about my arctic childhood”.

It is a live concept with improvised music, video art and live visual arts performance. The expression can be described, both visually and auditive, as silent, organic and lingering, with a focus on details.

A performance acts as an associative story telling where the content to a large extent will change from time to time, both because of context, and with most of it being improvised.

Thematically they work with nordic identity, around cycles in nature and the relationship man – nature.

HITYAMAC consist of:
Henrik Koppen
Torgeir Hovden Standal
Torkjell Hovland

BEK supports with equipment.

Time and place:
  • Ytre Arna - 27/09/2014 19:00
