Exhibition and Research Project (Dance)

Norwegian Centre for Traditional Music and Dance in cooperation with
Museums of South-Trøndelag, Norway


Over 3 years, the project will create three innovative and interactive dance exhibitions, accompanied by several larger events, at three museum venues in Trondheim, all part of the Museums of South-Trøndelag, Norway. These exhibitions will disseminate the large film archive at the Norwegian Center for Traditional Music and Dance (Sff) as well as promoting dance films proposed by amateur dancers in Norway and new creative film productions. In addition, the exhibitions will consist of interactive installations, text, poems, photographs, and room for dancing, and different methods for transmitting the embodied dance heritage from generation to generation and a broader audience. They aim to transmit kinaesthetic knowledge to new groups of audiences and use Trondheim’s local dance groups as dancers, instructors and hosts.
