09/2017 Ultima - NO
Ultima Remake is an outreach project for high schools that raises awareness for the role of art in society. Introduced to a piece of music considered a ‘contemporary classic’, students explore how the social, political and aesthetic context of the work relates to their own experiences and artistic understanding.
This reflective process is starting point for the creation of audiovisual installations and performances that combine new technologies and low-tech material.
This year’s Ultima Remake/Ulysses is a collaboration with composer Magnus Bugge, video artist Ove Alexander Dahl and teacher Richard Nygaard from Fyrstikkalleen vgs. Project Coordinator is Gyrid Nordal Kaldestad. Over four workshops, the students will develop an audio-visual installation based on the theme Ritual, inspired by the interdisciplinary works of Verdensteatret.
The public presentation of the Remake project 2017 takes place during the Ultima Festival 2017, on 12 September, 11.30 am at Fyrstikkalleen videregående skole Oslo (NOR).
