The Mountain Body – Norangsdalen, Sunnmøre

‘A once in a lifetime experience with a boat cruise through the beautiful Hjørundfjord. Upon arrival in Urke, you will be travelling by bus to Norangsdalen where visual artist and choreographer Helle Siljeholm together with climbers from Ålesund Climbing Club and dancers occupies Norangsdalen with a climbing performance.’

The ‘mountain range’ started in Norway in the autumn of 2021. The complex and multilayered geological area of Kolsåsstupene close to Oslo was the first iteration of the project. The Mountain Body – Norangsdalen will happen on Satirday 2 October during Høstscena in Norangsdalen, one of Norway’s most beautiful and narrow valleys. Norangsdalen, a place where the mountain touches upon human, physical, metaphorical and spiritual aspects, will get its own temporal ‘climbing sculpture’ within its unique natural surroundings.
