njord for Children & teenagers
NJORD Biennale 2018 presents the school workshop LIGHT TRAVELS under the theme of Nordic Noir. For the workshop, sound specialist and Ph.D. in Musicology, Ingeborg Okkels, composer and sound designer Patricio Fraile, and industrial designer Ann Linn Palm create an explorative, playful, and educational workshop for children in grades 4-6. The workshop takes its point of departure from an Icelandic legend about light and shadow that pupils are asked to interpret through auditive and visual means.
Working together on analogue and tactile experiments that involve sound, colour, and form, children explore and convey the legend's narrative focus on the meaning of light and the way light shapes our understandig of the world in the Nordic countries. The workshop deals with the sublte shades of darkness, and it creates an introspective and reflective space for each child through its use of only analogue materials. By means of colour, shapes, and timbres, the worshop concludes with a unique audiovisual work, created by the children.
Duration: 5 days with 3-4 lessons per day – the workshop can be tailored according to your wishes
