The weather websites say, the temperature in Kirkenes is below -20°C and feels like -30. Agreed, we're breathing crystals here.

Who would have guessed

Who would have guessed, but the result of trying to capture the magic of a polar light with a mobile phone is kind of dissappointing.

Vladimir & Vladimir

Today the two dancers from Russia arrived, Vladimir Dorokhin (r.) and Vladimir Varnava. They will be performing to three of the Finnmark Diaries songs. Vladimir Varnava, who flew in from Paris today also performed at our opera "There Are Places In Our Heads One Can Travel To" here in Kirkenes in 2011. He now developed the choreography for The Finnmark Diaries.

Keeping your hands warm

The Lighting crew. You have to know how to keep your hands warm in between installations.

The Light

Setting up the light.

Until Saturday

Our "The Finnmark Diaries" performance will be this Saturday, until then there will be more building up, testing and rehearsals. This rack construction will hold our video screens, by the way.

Heavy lifting

There's heavy lifting involved, luckily some people joined the crew, that are used to work in these temperatures: Russian seamen. Thank you guys!

Setting up the stage

So it's starting to get busy. Just now Lydteamet unloaded their trucks to start building up the stage for our performance. It's set up right behind the church overlooking the Kirkenesfjorden


When even people form Kirkenes or from Russia point out that it's really really cold right now, there is no point arguing.
