Pollinary Dances - Initiation Performance

By LATERNA // Marianne Skjeldal and Inger-Reidun Olsen

Shared in the Foyer at Black Box teater in Oslo September 4th 2020. 
Pollinary Dances - Initiation Performance an initation of the CoSA garden project at Black Box teater. 
In this perfomance ritual LATERNA is intriducing the universe of plants and medicinal plants through spagyric elixirs that are made from wild growing herbs from places visited in connection with the art project CoSA – Concerning the Spiritual in Art (2018-2020). We drink elixirs together and are introduced to Pollinary Dances, a performative event based on choreographic scores.

If we really listen, what can the plants tell us? How do they affect us and how do we affect them? How can plants and humans, animals and bees coexist and mutually support each other in an extended pollinary dance?

LATERNA consists of Inger-Reidun Olsen and Marianne Skjeldal, both choreographers, dance and performance artists. The performative works are grounded in an artistic ecology where everything is connected and the projects are given time to develop through regular practice and methodological studies aimed at tracing history, gathering collectives and creating new forms of community.
