A KINETIC AND DISORIENTING PERFORMANCE OF MOTION AND MOOD
Valosäde 2021, from SVÄV.
Award for an accomplished lighting design
Hypnotic and mesmerising to the senses
Vaarna is a surrealistic performance that blends juggling, installation art, and physical theatre. Hypnotic and mesmerizing to the senses, it creates a dialogue between the performer’s and the spectator’s imaginations by presenting lighthearted and touching images that evoke different emotions and thoughts depending on the viewers’ personal experiences.
A kinetic and disorienting performance of motion and mood, Vaarna’s breathtaking light design, soulful music, and the jugglers’ object manipulation combine into an artistically versatile experience that is curious and playful, personal and touching – like a stream of consciousness in visual form.
Vaarna is a result of two years of collaboration between the jugglers, light designer, and sound designer interested in creating a performance that gathers their different art forms into a unifying kinetic and disorienting experience of motion and mood. Creating a performance like a visual stream of consciousness, a real treat for the eyes and mind.
