valhalla [2018]  on tour

On an icebound ship (the last one?) there is an organisation that tolerates no deviation or opposition. The captain tiredly watches over his crew and fears, no awaits, the mutiny that inexorably must take place. The heart of the empire beats feverishly and unevenly: The last breath of a civilization? A new dawn?
In a late coming spring we inspect the natural patterns and instincts of humankind. Do we keep coming back to the same dead ends? How can self centered people who feed their competitive instincts and egos maintain a democracy? Is there, within the nature of humankind, a clean and true sense of compassion that does not expect anything in return?

We witness six artists on stage, who describe their Valhalla with their acrobatic skills, their voice, their movement and a bagpipe.

" In Nordic mythology, Valhalla is a part of the kingdom of the gods to which the Valkyries lead the valiant warriors who died on the battlefield. (...) A visual enchantment with a scent of the end of the world. »
