Bruno Zambrano, Sofia Charifi, Lari Silva
and joy pleasure rhythm rhythm rhythm

A performance full of rhythm, dance and shared enjoyment with two dancers and a musician! About leaving a mark, settling down, fatigue and potential.
Sofia Charifi is active in the free field of art as a creator, producer, writer and as a performer. 
Dance artist Bruno Zambrano focuses on playfulness and enjoyment in his work. 
Musician and artist Lari Silva works mostly as a drummer in various ensembles.

Jo Einar Jansen (NO), Hans Hulbækmo (NO)
Hans, Jo! 

The duo consists of Hans Hulbækmo (percussion, jew’s harp) and Jo Einar Jansen (fiddles, Hiiu kannel) playing new and old tunes from the northern hemisphere. They venture into the music, play around with melodies and rhythms, and form the musical path during their journey. The tunes are based on traditional folk music, and they use old melodies alongside new compositions by themselves.

Premier at Marginalen!

Sergio Castrillón, Andrew Bentley

Cellist Sergio Castrillón performs with Andrew Bentley on the instrument skillo – a combination of a ski pole, a bridge and four cello strings. The performance combines electronic noise with theatrical elements.

Premier at Marginalen!


(Galleriet, 7.30pm-10pm)

Mauritz Tistelö (SE)
Bring it on and let loose on the runaway streets of my body 

A performance improvisation built on the meeting between physical action and imagination, poetry and live art.
Mauritz Tistelö is a performance poet. In his latest performances, he has in his actions created a dialogue between two different places. It is absurd, humorous, painful and poetic.

Premier at Marginalen!

Oiro Pena
free/spiritual jazz

Oiro Pena’s music has been labelled underground, outsider, low-fi and folky, as well as energetic, astral and psychospiritually warm.
