In a series of artivism work choreographer Kristine Nilsen Oma addresses the issue of isolation due to chronic illness, and uses her quarantine to create a new work that will be live streamed at Norway Fringe Festival from the quarantine of her own flat. A lot of people have experienced quarantine since the COVID19 pandemic broke out this year. For the #millionsmissing living in quarantine is normalcy. Can this pandemic create a wave of change and empathy for the chronically ill, due to everyone having to experience this kind of life? Karantena #millionsmissing takes the audience closer to the quarantine life of the choreographer herself. Being known for her extremely personal work, this new work will be as personal in the context of whats going on in the world with COVID19. The work addresses the universal experience of isolation. With the laptop as a camera, the dogme film rules as inspiration, and the risky technique of live streaming on a cheap budget enhances vulnerability. The movements are inspired by the limitation of the small flat and is a response to the meeting between the theme of isolation, the room, the laptops camera and the internal response to knowing an audience is watching live. The audience becomes a spectator to the choreographer that is longing to dance.
