WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Fortunetellers is an autobiographical, narrative performance based on a five-month residency the artist Ellie Ga spent on the Tara, a research sailboat frozen into the ice, purposely drifting near the North Pole to gather scientific data. Combining a vast array of documents she created and archived along the way (photographs, videos, annotated sketches, maps, travel logs), Ga superimposes live storytelling, recorded sound, still and moving images, to conjure up the terms and rituals of daily life in the Arctic night while incorporating fragments of one of the rare entertainment forms the artist and the other nine crew members of the expedition managed to create for themselves in their remote, confined habitat: a lecture series.
