“Three Sisters” is a performance that talks about the great women of the Nordic countries. Of their tenderness, strength, convictions and fears. The mysteries unfold in reality and disappear between heaven and earth. There is no right or wrong, no good or bad, a woman is just flesh and bone in the veil of sisterly love.
The project is based on aerial disciplines (hammock, hoop) and handstand/acro-dance combined with witty comedy, spiced up with social criticism and danced away by folk songs and stories of epics. While creating the show the team researched old nordic traditions about marriage, women’s role in the household, what type of a woman was desired during the old times and how has it changed (or not) these days.
