Siku Aappoq / melting ice
An intercultural performance installation about the consequenses of the global climate changes.
The course of nature is changing along with human existence and behavior. There is an opening towards something new. This is expressed in abstract metaphor, through a simplification, which is characterized of something timeless and universal: A warning of a change soon to come. A dialog between the unbalance in the human and in the iceberg is displayed.
Nature and mankind are one! We are like the outer loop of a spiral and we will slowly travel towards the eye of the hurricane. The ice takes on different forms like blocks, crystal and floes and it will eventually turn into water. The white color of the ice appears in many different nuances.
