7 RUNES is a raw, poetic and powerful performance, which draws inspiration from Norse mythology, Vikings and the cult movie The Hunger Games. The performance features an international team of break dancers, modern dancers and world-class circus artists.


In 7 RUNES, seven fearless "shape shifters" form a clan in a world in which brutal, mysterious and humorous games of love, power and hope unfold. These are wild warriors whose characteristics are reminiscent of those of the Norse gods, norns who weave human destinies, mythological creatures that are half human, snakes, eagles, valkyries and skeletal warriors. The performance is one of intertwined bodies that form mysterious runes, Viking designs inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry, jewellery design from the Viking Age and berserk warriors in a martial trance. Inspiration is also drawn from the cult movie The Hunger Games.
