Barents Spektakel 2022:

Where do we go from here

A new golden age of celebration and decadence? A long overdue reunion with friends and family? Or a false dawn for normality? The 2022 edition of the Barents Spektakel festival borrows its title from Martin Luther King Jr’s book on equality and social justice, and it will continue the conversations opened under the 2021 festival in relation to what is ‘essential’ in culture, society, and our ways of living here in the North. With a special focus this time on movements, mobility, community, and the re-making of meeting places, in 2022 the festival will again become a platform for speculation and imagination through a cross-border programme of performances, exhibitions, concerts, debates, discussions, a bar concept, and an art symposium. Still in transition, now is the time to ask ourselves: Where do we go from here?

The 18th edition of the Barents Spektakel festival will take place between the 23rd and 27th of February in Kirkenes, and across multiple venues in Russia. More details coming soon…

Where do we go from here

En ny gullalder med feiring og forfall? Et etterlengtet gjensyn med venner og familie? Eller en falsk daggry for normalitet? 2022-utgaven av Barents Spektakel-festivalen låner tittelen fra Martin Luther King Jrs bok om likeverd og sosial rettferdighet, og bygger samtidig videre på samtaler fra den digital-fysiske hybridfestivalen i 2021 ‘The Essentials’, om hva som er ‘essensielt’ i samfunnet, kulturen og våre levemåter her i nord. Med et spesielt fokus på bevegelser, mobilitet, fellesskap og gjenoppretting av møteplasser, skal Barents Spektakel igjen bli en plattform for spekulasjoner og fantasi gjennom et grenseoverskridende program med forestillinger, utstillinger, konserter, debatter, diskusjoner, et barkonsept og et kunstsymposium. Fremdeles i en overgang – nå er tiden for å spørre oss selv: hvor går vi herfra?

Den 18. utgaven av Barents Spektakel-festivalen finner sted 23. til 27. februar i Kirkenes og flere ulike arenaer i Russland. Flere detaljer kommer…

Куда идём дальше

Что нас ждет в будущем? Новый золотой век или век декаданса? Весьма запоздалая встреча с родными и близкими или ложная надежда на нормальную жизнь? Баренц Спектакль 2022 года заимствует тему из книги Мартина Лютера Кинга, посвященной равенству и социальной справедливости. Фестиваль продолжает открытый в прошлом году дискурс о “насущном” в культуре, обществе и жизни на Севере в целом. Особенное внимание в этот раз уделяется движению, мобильности, сообществу и переосмыслению мест встречи.  В 2022 году фестиваль снова станет платформой для размышления и воображения с насыщенной трансграничной программой, которая включает в себя перфомансы, выставки, концерты, дебаты, дискуссии, концепт-бар и арт-симпозиум.

Находясь до сих пор в переходном периоде, пора задаться вопросом: куда идём дальше?

18-ый Баренц спектакль состоится с 23 по 27 февраля 2022 года в г.Киркенесе (Норвегия) и во многих местах в России.  Более подробная информация появится позднее.

The Barents Spektakel is Norway´s most border-crossing festival!

The Barents Spektakel is an annual event that builds cultural bridges across real and imaginary borderlines. The five-day festival is a cultural-political cocktail with contemporary art and music, theatre and performance, literature and architecture and seminars and debates as its ingredients – all spiced with current issues related to the Barents Region and the High North in general. The festival first started in 2004 and each February explodes to life as the long polar night comes to an end.

The festival first started in 2004 and in February 2022 will transform Kirkenes into a Barents Metropolis for the 18th time.
