The “Wild Trilogy” is  a reflection of community values and the lonely and distant villages as creators of the modern human identity among the three Nordic and Baltic countries – Denmark, Norway and Latvia.

The structure of the performance is trilogy. On the basis of it there are documentations of inhabitant’s stories and daily life situations, which are complemented with the emotional impressions and observations of creative team. Every part of the performance is going to explore the main aspects that characterise and affect the identities of local people from historical, political, climatic conditions to cultural and territorial points of view.

“Wild trilogy” had started developing during the Kedja programme “Wilderness Dance”, which are unique residency opportunities for international contemporary dance artists (about a 50 artists) groups from 5 countries. It is an opportunity for artists to work, explore and create in distant regions, wild life. They get influence from environment and local residents.

“Anatomy of Dance” was guests in Denmark’s village Toftlund and in Norway’s town Hammerfest during the 2013. In 2014 the creative team on their own initiative went to Latvian East border village – Indra.
