• Join us on the beach for Sun & Sea! We need extras

On March 7th and 8th Borealis is hosting the award winning opera performance Sun & Sea, and we need you to take part!

The setting is a sunny afternoon on a beach, kids play, dogs bark and sunbathers lie around in their swimsuits as singers sing songs about the changing climate around us. As we build our beach (inside!) in Bergen, we need people to join the performance, and spend a day or two on this unique beach. Having won the Golden Lion at this summer’s Venice Biennale, critics around the world have praised Sun & Sea for its mix of ecological awareness and powerful impact – “This year’s showstopper, whose deep ecological engagement comes with irrepressible joy” said the New York Times.

In order to build up the beach community for the Scandinavian premiere of this work, we are looking for a diverse range of people, and if you would like to join this unique project, then please fill out the form below so that the artists can make their casting decisions! The piece needs to represent all of us, so all bodies are welcome, and those with dogs or kids can bring the family too! No skills or experience needed, only your own swimwear. The performances takes place at the Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design, UiB on the 7th and 8th of March, and run between 11.00 and 16.00. Please tell us a bit about yourself and your availability to take part in one or both of the performances.
