We will return to Midgardsblot with a powerful gig based on the myths surrounding a new consciousness born from chaos and order in kinship.
Both “sides” are represented in Enslaveds conceptual universe (“Loke”, “Ethica Odini”); our strife and battles but also the fruits of our more or less consensual melting (“Sacred Horse”). The journey is long and arduous (“Havenless”) and it is depicted through Enslaved’s signature progressive Metal, this time accompanied by modern dance.
The contemporary dance company Mia Habib Productions is based in Oslo and works with contemporary dance in various settings such as galleries, religious spaces, squats and conflict areas around the globe. She has previously produced the show “Gjallarhorn” for Carte Blanche, the Norwegian national company for contemporary dance, for Bergen International Festival, and has always been fascinated by extreme metal.
Enslaved and Mia Habib Productions will cooperate in creating a powerful stage show during Midgardsblot 2019. Extreme metal and contemporary dance will melt together to give this summer ́s festival attendees a show they have not often seen the likes of. Musicians and dancers alike are excited! – Ivar Bjørnson, Enslaved & Mia Habib Productions
