Great grandfather’s dance moves

Traditional dance from the archives

The initiative ‘Great grandfather’s dance moves’ builds on exploring and using archives and archival material. In addition, the initiative will also contribute to exploring identity, history, and tradition through the variety of dance and music in traditional dance and music.
Through these workshops, we want to convey some of the rich and valuable material from Hordaland to children and young people through reflection, testing and movement, and by involvement in and use of material from the archives. Furthermore, we want to give participants the opportunity to test out and practise collecting their own dance and music material. They are thus able to practise seeing, for instance, traditional dance in another light. Such an approach will also contribute to viewing culture – and cultural heritage in general – from a different perspective.
