Concert "Fortell Livet" is inspired by sounds, words and images from Poland, Iran and Norway, created by the Norwegian actress Juni Dahr, Iranian singer Mahsa Vahdat and Polish CHOREA Theatre, led by Tomasz Rodowicz. The light from Polish, Persian and Norwegian music creates a performance inspired by the poetic works of Wisława Szymborska and Zbigniew Herbert.
On the occasion of her 30th anniversary of stage work, Juni Dahr created a story about human life, starting with her theatrical roots, the famous school of Jerzy Grotowski in Wrocław, creating a new musical performance, presented for the first time at the Sandvika Theater in Norway, with the participation of world-famous jazz musicians: Arve Henriksen (trumpet), Tord Gustavsen (piano) and Kenneth Ekornes (drums). The concert is produced by Erik Hillestad.
The partner of the project is Baerum Kulturhus.
The event was supported by the Polish Embassy in the Kingdom of Norway.
