Inspired by Charles Darwin’s 150th anniversary and his research into the coevolution of plants and insects the show comprises a series of studies in dance accompanied by choreographed lighting and sound. The stage design’s multiple white surfaces create a space for open-ended interpretations by an adult male dancing around a totem. The performance was on tour in 2015 as part of the Concerts Norway’s nationwide program. Batteries power the soundscapes and lighting and the show is portable – it can be performed outdoors.

The soundtrack is released by Rune grammofon
