(Kaleidoscope in English). Therefore, we select the best; a first-class symphony orchestra that has the flexibility and playfulness needed to make this concert a milestone in our history’ , says Ole Hamre, one of two artistic directors of Fargespill. Joining Fargespill in the medley are two young classical soloists who will be playing instruments on loan from Dextra Musica. Fargespill are masters of combining expressiveness and professionality in order to create vivid dramatic art. Children and youths bring their unique expressiveness – a story to tell through their own cultural inheritance. Their story is given a professional framework in the form of top-drawer artistic and technical staff in order to elevate and give it momentum. During the festival this principle is taken to new heights as a symphony orchestra of international standing meets an animated eruption of 100 children and youths from 35 countries – who together crash through social barriers and shatter musical boundaries. 0 10 01 1 Séance Fargespill mkú B E RG E N IN T E RN AT ION A L F E ST IVA L 2 01 6 The Norwegian Radio Orchestra (KORK) Ingar Bergby conductor Fargespill – 100 children and youths from around the world Ole Hamre drums, artistic director Sissel Saue choir master, song instruction, artistic director Harald Dahlstrøm keyboard Yngve Ådland guitar Jaser Sayun percussion, beatboxing Mira Thiruchelvam tamil flute, jathees Johanne Haugland violin Andrés Maurette O’Brien viola Elizabeth Guino-O choreography, staging Britt Koldal sceneography, stage manager Jan Henrik Vindenes sound design Kåre Ivar Skjørestad lighting design Kjersti Berge producer Frøydis Moberg co-producer Sigurd Rotvik Tunestveit musical consultant Håkon Berge musical arrangement Supported by The DNB Savings Bank Foundation – Dextra Musica and Grieg Foundation Sponsored by DNB #FE STSPILLEN E16 k World premiere G RIE G H A L L E N G RIE G SA L E N DAT E / T IME Wednesday 01 June at 20:00 Satellites Presented at Baroniet Rosendal Friday 03 June at 19:00 and Stavanger konserthus Sunday 05 June at 19:00 DU RAT ION 1:30 T IC K E T Standard: 300 Under 30: 150 Festival Card: 30% discount DN Fordel: 15 % discount A concert performance about spiritualistic séances and one of the most infamous criminal mysteries in Norway’s history. Film director and playwright Harald Zwart, in collaboration with composers Karoline Krüger and Sigvart Dagsland and Veslemøy Ruud Zwart, guide the audience through the world premiere of a concert version of their coming musical, Séance. It is inspired by the historical battle between academia and new alternative forces and the true story of Ingeborg Køber (1895–1977). Køber was one of Norway’s most famous mediums. In 1934 she was accused of planning and carrying out the drowning of her own father after first predicting his death during a séance. The case received considerable attention because the law, academia, church and science challenged each other’s values; to believe or disbelieve in the supernatural, and if it is possible for the living to communicate with the dead.
