Large Bird Mask

September 14th, 2019 7:30 PM Rolf Wallin & Kjetil Skøien: Large Bird Mask (2019, WP) Den Norske Opera & Ballett, Scene 2 Cikada Christian Eggen – conductor Kjetil Skøien – stage director We are increasingly made aware of animal species on the brink of extinction. The populations of many common birds have been more than halved in the last decades. This has led Rolf Wallin and Kjetil Skøien to ask: when we exterminate the birds, do we also exterminate what they symbolise deep within us? The dream of flying, of singing freely and exuberantly – the very dream of freedom? Maybe it's time to show a bit of humility? In many cultures, shamans use masks to become one with the animal spirits. Instead
