MARITEA DÆHLIN: I WANT TO BE TRADITIONAL
I WANT TO BE TRADITIONAL is a solo work attempting to push the boundaries of the understanding of the self as a layered and fluid being continuously moving in all directions.
Maritea creates ritualistic visual spaces, where much spins around text, fragmentation, repetition and rhythm. Personal and fictional memories are freely spun on in a continuous stream of consciousness.
Artist Maritea Dæhlin (1986) alternates between living and working in Norway and Mexico. She is interested in human behaviours, emotions, rituals and encounters. Her work spans between devised theater, video performance, performance art and poetry. Earlier this spring, she presented I WANT TO BE TRADITIONAL as part of Oslo International Teaterfestival at Black Box teater.
