Performance Weekend 8-10 Sept.

In connection with this year’s parliamentary election, KODE invites you to the performance weekend "Voices" 8-10 September.

On the 11th of September there will be a parliamentary election in Norway. The world around us is changing. The public discourse is getting tougher. There is a struggle going on to distinguish between truth and lies. What are the values that are at stake here?

– We want the public to be confronted with and reflect over the personal responsibility that is part of living and participating in a democracy, says Director of Art and Design at KODE, Line Daatland.

KODE has invited Norwegian and international artists to comment on the election here in Norway, as well as the greater global political reality we are a part of. The artists are free to express political stances and opinions on ethical issues.
