“The Black Side” was a multidisiplinary performance about light and its absence in the Nordic countries.
It was the result of 12 months extensive audio and video recordings in Norway, Denmark and Finland – put together into a performance that pulled it’s audience through pitch black darkness, fog, loneliness and blinding light.
The artists behind the group Location X has all marked themselves as creative forces within their respective genres. In Black Side they have gathered to create a special performance where music, dance and video art come together in exploring the puzzle of the Nordic light.
