Rhythms from Space is a family show with interactive technology, lots of drums and exciting music. Two drumonauts who drum themselves through the galaxy. Suddenly, they find themselves in a life-threatening situation, quite alone, far out in the universe. A princess gives them a task: They must save her planet from a dangerous asteroid. Members of the audience get to control the lights and laser beams, and everyone has to help when the drumship develops engine trouble. The children will never forget this journey.

Festival Square bubbles over with food from all corners of the world. One day break-dancers Absence wake up to discover that time has passed by and they are in a retirement home. When they realize that they have grown old, they refuse to accept it. Even if the body isn’t willing, the six break-dancers in Absence rebel against time and the carers in the retirement home. Oldschool is a production about life’s joys and impermanence that puts life into perspective. In collaboration with the Bergen International Festival, BIKS and Det felles invandrerråd Hordaland host a food market where the public can buy reasonably priced food from 20 different countries. This tasty morsel from RIFF includes artistic performances from Bergen and other parts of the world. After the aperitif at Festival Square, RIFF continues at Logen Theatre with even more music and dance at 19:00 (see page 19). With the help of break-dance, humour and a good dose of hip-breaking acrobatics, the Bergen-based crew show that growing old doesn’t have to mean becoming boring. Artists and performers supply entertainment for all ages, while the various food stands serve large and small delicacies. This is the third RIFF event, but the first time an abundant food menu and outdoor programme is offered. The concept is centred on grand words such as roots, identity, difference and fellowship, but is first and foremost a boundless celebration of music for the feet, head, heart and of course, stomach.
