About the Event
The Ilios Festival and Cikada proudly present: NIGHT LIVES by Kristine Tjøgersen
Let your eardrums grow on your ribs.
Tongues under the soles of your feet.
Put your hands behind your ears.
There you go. Now you're ready for the night.
When the sun goes down, a whole new world comes to life that most of us know little about. Although we share physical space with these creatures, we rarely meet them. Evolution has given them senses that we humans do not have, senses that allow them to rule the night just as we rule the day.
Composer Kristine Tjøgersen has teamed up with biologist Hanna Bjørgaas, author of the book The Secret Life of the City, lighting designer Evelina Dembacke and set designer Ellen Jerstad. Together with Cikada Ensemble, who comissioned the work, they will explore the nocturnal animals and their quirky sensory world.
Welcome to Night Lives – to the lives of those who sing in the dark and communicate on different frequencies. The concert was premiered at the Ultima festival September 2023: sold out and a great success!
