Description: Monica Emilie Herstad introduces her performance Movers and Shakers – Tangible channeling the existence of nature, a work inspired by Rosmerholm and The Masterbuilder by 19th-century Norwegian playwright, Henrik Ibsen. Movers and Shakers addresses urban life and draws content from the writings themselves. Rosmerholm examines the illusive nature of truth itself, and The Masterbuilder - one of Ibsen's towering achievements - undermines the distinction between reality and fantasy.
