FAR NORTH // THE DISKOTEK
THE DISKO BAY SESSIONS FOR CONTEMPORARY MUSIC & THEATRE.
The sessions bring together renowned creators from the international field of contemporary composition, drama, visual arts, and literature along with young aspiring artists from the Nordic/Arctic countries. There is an emphasis on establishing lasting fruitful artistic relationships with the younger generation of aspiring professional artists in Greenland.
The sessions mainly take place in the small settlement of Oqaatsut by the Disko Bay. Just north of Ilulissat and the Icefjord.
Suzanne Farrin, in collaboration with ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble), is bringing the Odes Martenot to Greenland for the first time in history (as far as we know!). Together with Ross Karre she will make the eerie sounds of this peculiar instrument resonate under the Arctic winter skies. Stay tuned!
