Passing through landscapes

by Katarina Skår Lisa and Ramona Salo Myrseth


Performance at PAO festival 2019







No Silence/No Sound – How to hear a performance?

Passing through landscapes is a project collaboration between textile- and fashion designer Ramona Salo Myrseth and performer- and choreographer Katarina Skår Lisa.

Through their close practice together, of movement and tactile expressions, they are researching about Sea Sami language and heritage in an artistic context.

With visual elements and creation of atmosphere they aim weave stories together as contemporary storytelling.

Passing through landscapes is a continuation of the duo’s practice and series of performances that has been made the last year. The work is a contemplation on nature and landscape as a co-creator of the work, seen from an indigenous worldview.

Interview With Katarina Lisa

Q- how did you arrive at doing performance?

A – I started with performance as a part of my inquiry and interest for stillness and a certain feeling of ‘truth’ in my movements.

After my formal dance education in 2010 I searched for ways of expression in a way where a personal vision could appear through an intention of honesty and clarity in actions.
