Me Too

Kristin Helgebostad & Laura Marie RueslåttenMe Too

Play video

A quartet of stomping, full-voiced Norwegian women conjure fantastical and ever-shifting images in Me Too. Handbells and movement melt together. Colour, energy and singing/dancing sculptures emerge from a glistening backdrop. You might recognise some music — but your head will spin if you try to figure out exactly what is what in their world.
