How did the contrasting aesthetics of contemporary, modern and jazz styles enter the Norwegian art scene? And how do we best preserve and present our collective memory of a young and dynamic art form?
The art of dance has a short history in Norway. The 70s and 80s were particularly expansive decades in contemporary dance, paving the way for an artistic explosion in the 90s. Dance Information Norway has collected documentation from the artistic activities in this era – most notably 50 video interviews with the active and passionate choreographers, dancers, teachers and organizers – the driving forces in this pioneering age.
