An artistic exploration into an Arctic region [2008 – 2010]

Contemporary Dance Opera [2011]
"There Are Places In Our Heade One Can Travel To"

MEMORIA NORWAY is both an expedition into an Arctic landscape and an audiovisual performance tour. It is an artistic transformation of acoustic and visual impressions and memories.

SpringerParker are using their artistic language to describe the Arctic region of North Norway. They are exploring and observing landscape and environment, focussing on the impact of climate change and industrialization.

They are recording their impressions in the form of brass rubbings, photos and field recordings: archives which serve as the source for live performances, exhibitions and publications.

Meeting people is an essential part of the project. Musicians, artists, people from cultural and scientific organisations, ordinary people, they all have stories to tell about the environment they are living in. They become part of Memoria Norway.


During their explorations and tours of the MEMORIA NORWAY project, SpringerParker updated the Logbook on a regular basis. They document their route and events in forms of on location photos and descriptions sent directly via the mobile phone to the project website. Clicking at the geographical data to the left of the entries lets you follow their route on the map.
