2020 FINSE CAMP

FINSE CAMP 2020

22. - 23. august 2020

Sign up before 21. June

Finse Camp is a meeting between members of the two organizations Performance Art Bergen and Performance Art Oslo. On August 22, 2020, we will meet up at Finse to do performance together, and gather to eat, drink and talk about our what it means to perform. Finse Camp was held for the first time in 2014, and has since been held every other year, last time in 2018.

Finse Camp is a forum for testing artistic ideas in a magnificent scenery. The participants come from all over Norway, but most are based in Oslo / Akershus and in Bergen / in Western Norway. Because of this it is natural to meet in the middle - between the two cities, at Finse. Here we can work in various places in nature, and explore the landscape by the use of body and material. We encourage everyone be mindful of this: to chose environmentally friendly materials and to tidy up everything after the performances.

Finse Camp will be a bit different this year. This year the much-used Finsehytta is closed for renovation. As a replacement, DNT will open Brebua, a new cabin where one can book a bed in a common room. In addition, there is the ongoing coronavirus situation, which means that we must follow current guidelines. It is difficult to predict exactly what the situation will be in August, but all points towards going through with Finse Camp, with certain modifications.

Finse Camp will be mostly a self-catering event. PAB/PAO will provide a photographer and dinner for all participants.
