“Kartellet” (The Cartel) is an interactive performance where stage and audience aren’t separated. The performance bases itself on the most important premise of traditional dances from Norway; participation.
Kartellet have had 30 performances in 11 different venues during 2012 and 2013.
Kartellet lets the audience experience a physical collaboration between five characteristic male dancers, each with a strong individuality. Accompanied by live, new-written traditional music, the dancers challenge each other –and if you get close, they might show tenderness as well. The dancers both perform for the audience and dance with them, and through the participation of the audience the piece will vary from show to show.
