French version

Nordicité is a quest, which takes the form of a love metaphor. A wandering artist offers an intimate account of her encounter with the North, and of the feeling of vertigo as she faces an immensity she cannot grasp. Nordicité is a visual poem that combines video, projection, music, theatre and dance. It is a journey between myth and reality, and a reflection on our capacity to understand the voices of the North.

Presented at the Festival de Casteliers in 2017, Nordicité is the first show in a creative five-year cycle (2015-2019) which includes expeditions to different northern regions; creating two shows and short films using puppet and shadow theatre; writing short stories; artistic mediation workshops; and a digital platform available free of charge.

Running time: 55 minutes
Techniques: Mixed


Founded in 1991 by José Babin, Théâtre Incliné is a decisively visual theatre. Its artistic creations, driven by poetic images, present a fragmented space where matter, body, light, sound and music are the constituents of a vast canvas. In its shows, Théâtre Incliné invites the audience to put the pieces together.

The Nordland Visual Theatre (Norway) is an international creative centre specializing in visual theatre that uses puppets and other animated forms. The NVT hosts some of contemporary visual theatre’s most renowned artists.
