"Many of the halling dancers were great athletes in their communities, and became famous for their ability to dance and throw themselves high up in the air. On the other hand, records show that a fair amount of the same dancers got into trouble, and many dance sessions ended in violence and manslaughter.This may be due to the adrenaline produced during the exercise. Dancing and honour were closely connected, and the dancers competed for the prize until one of them got hurt or killed. Some dancers were executed, others were taken to prison for their use of the knife." The Halling was also used for Alexander Rybak's winning performance at Eurovsision.
So it's not difficult to see why Hansegård would attempt to direct a performance like Tidarå, an outdoor full night dance performance under a raging waterfall with 22 dancers and musicians, From Aftenposten:
Twenty feet above the falls in the narrow gorge with steep cliffs on each side hanging only dancer in the red stoffremsene. He is not attached to the line, and he has a safety net. Under him, the froth flooding large waterfall. On stage are two men from the Red Cross, ready to rescue efforts. But can they actually do something or the other if something happens here?
Frikar will be performing ‘Mjølk’ (Milk), which features a meeting between three farm-boys on their daily commute to the milk ramp. The milk-collecting van fails to materialise and the three, bored guys are left to themselves. The show focuses on the surrealism that can unfold when three restless acrobats are left with nothing to do. Which, with Frikar, could be anything! Here is the performance.
