People have an inlaid feeling that they have the ability to predict the future, or if they see patterns they have a built in feeling that they’re meaningful, and a built in feeling that they can control things. - Leonard Mlodinow


The narrative in People stems from the interview That’s so random! featuring amongst others Dr.Leonard Mlodinow. The interview describes how people unconsciously want to give meaning to random behavior. In Lots of People the dancers experiment with a movement based take on this topic and through a delicate and peculiar use of composition and dramaturgy we are given a completely new view on Ravnedalen. The piece has a subtle sense of humour filled with many associative gaps.


People have finally grown to a full evening performance especially designed for Ravnedalen and involves several local artists from Kristiansand. The short version of People has been shown at more than 30 places around Europe, USA and Asia. Next up is Dansens Hus in Oslo on the 28th and 29th of april, come and have a taster!



PS. We invite the audience to see if they can find a pattern in the randomness, and the winner will get their very own copy of the book!

“We all create our own view of the world and then employ it to filter and process our perceptions, extracting meaning from the ocean of data that washes over us in daily life. ”
