My grandfather tells me that at the age of 11 he was taken from his home and forcibly evacuated on the German boat Karl Arp. "Why hadn't I heard about this before? Why hadn't I asked?

Forgotten is a dance performance with the brutal North Norwegian war history as a backdrop. Everyday memories, the nuances of war, taste, smell and childhood memories. The performance approaches the great war through the experiences of the little people. The audience is invited into the performance space for an intimate experience conveyed through dance, objects and authentic sound recordings from a suppressed past.

Forgotten are memories of war, of losing, of forgetting, of trying to rise again.

Simone Grøtte is a dancer and choreographer from Lakselv in Finnmark, Norway, and is known for her critically acclaimed hit "The Man Who Stopped the Expressway". Her work is strongly influenced by her northern Norwegian and Sami background, which is woven into a modern expression in themes, stage design and music. Her performances explore questions of identity and belonging, with a deeply human approach. Grøtte has previously made co-productions with major institutions such as Hålogaland Theatre, the Varanger Festival and the Riddu Riddu Festival.

Co-produced by Festspillene i Nord-Norge.
