A story of collective strength
For more than ten years, there has been a global knitting movement that strives for peace through its activism. Knitters worldwide have brought contemporary issues forward through yarn and knitting needles. In this piece, some of these voices for change and humanity are reflected.
“Våga vakna” is a performance that strives to bring together global issues around peace and empathy and urge viewers to manage. Via live music, aerial and balance acrobatics and video works, a visual world is created where the artists tackle questions on a micro and macro level about a kinder and more sustainable world.
“Våga vakna” is an independent work inspired by Cirkör's touring performance Knitting Peace.
