On the occasion of visit of one of the most acclaimed Norwegian contemporary dance companies Zero Visibility Corp and their performance of ‘Frozen Songs’ at Belgrade Dance Festival, the Ambassador of Norway H.E. Arne Sannes Bjørnstad and Mrs Hager Jemli Bjørnstad hosted a reception at the Norwegian residence.

Supported by the Norwegian Arts Council Zero Visibility Corp is one of the most acclaimed Norwegian contemporary dance companies.

The inspiration behind Frozen Songs

In 2008, an old dream of the United Nations finally saw the light: on the island of Svalbard, one of the safest and most peaceful places in the world, a large warehouse was built 120 meters inside a mountain. In the middle of the “permafrost”, a thick layer of soil that never melts, the Global Seed Vault was established.

Since its opening eight years ago, 840.000 samples of seeds have been deposited in the Vault. The seed is a source of life, the beginning of everything, and the Vault (also known as the “Doomsday Vault”) represents the need to protect it at all costs. If there are seeds, there is hope; everything that dies could blossom once again. These “sleeping beauties”, resting in the depth of a mountain close to the North Pole, could one day save the world.

Frozen Songs is a “poem” about life, delivered by award-winning Ina Christel Johannessen and her collective of expressive dancers in close collaboration with multimedia artists Feng Jiangzhou and Zhang Lin.

The creation is expected to unfold chapter by chapter and explore the juxtaposition between the different media and explore the epic power of the seed.
