How creates young people’s identity today? Youth on Opera #I is a modern dance performance choreographed by Christina Tingskog for children between 10-12 years. First performance on Opera Rotunda on 19 November.

Who am I among selfies and avatars? Where starting #I IRL? #I is an adventure trip about identity, power and powerlessness in the digital world, where dancers play with the phenomena and expressions of social media and video games.

Music, movement, set design and shadow interact and create a journey where #I face challenges, adventure and people in both virtual and real environments. Behind the dramatic and technically advanced set design with light, animation and video projections are set designer Mark Granquist. The composer Daniel Nelson has created a fast-paced electronic sound world for the journey ahead.
