Fargespill Bodø: A Kaleidoscope of Colours

The Whole World on One Stage

When Fargespill Bodø comes to Stormen Concert Hall, the hall will be filled with music, rhythms, movements and happiness.

Dates and tickets

Every Tuesday since October, 50 children and young people between the ages of 7 and 22 have met in the concert hall, to create a performance inspired by their cultures and interests from the whole world. With professional performers and teachers from different fields of the arts they have made a performance consisting of singing, dancing, music and circus.

On stage they have with them the Arctic Philharmonic Sinfonietta and Bodø Rhythm Group, led by Torodd Wigum. They will take you on a musical journey from African rhythms and Arabic songs to Norwegian children’s songs from the 1800’s, circus and a lot of dancing. There will also be some well-known local contributions, in a brand-new version.

When we asked the participants what this year’s performance should be called, the suggestions were many. In Norwegian, they all started with “farge”, meaning colour. The atmosphere at the rehearsals has been beyond fantastic, and the energy which this creates is great. Thinking of this, it reminds us of our “fargespill”-song where the text reflects that there is room for everyone in Bodø.

The Team

The team making Fargespill Bodø is Thale Krogtoft (singing), Cecilie Haugseth (dancing) and Geir Tømmerberg (music). Instructors who have joined them is Silje Katrine Tryggestad (African dancing), Thea Meyer (singing), Diego Belda (circus) and Safaa Al-Saadi (drums and Arabic music).

Fargespill Bodø is a collaboration between Stormen Concert Hall, The foundation Fargespill, Bodø2024, The Arctic Philharmonic and Bodø Rhythm Group. Samfunnsløftet is an important contributor.

About Fargespill

Fargespill is so much more than just a performance. It is a meeting between people and cultures. People meet through the arts and create an arena for unity and for being together. Fargespill sees everyone as valuable for what they can do, and the focus is on that, not what they can’t do.

Fargespill was created as a commissioned work for the Bergen International Festival in 2004, and it was made by Ole Hamre and Sissel Saue. Since then, it has become its own foundation and it has spread to many different towns. Fargespill has been seen by thousands of people, and it has been nominated for the Norwegian Grammy Award and the Nobel Peace Prize.
