Sunday 4.2 we celebrate Museum Nord’s 20th anniversary and the opening week of Bodø2024 in Øksnes!

On this occasion, we invite you to a bouncy and playful theater happening about the giant Stor-Johan and his wife Andrea under the direction of performing artists Gina Lindås Theodorsen and Sebastian Warholm. The event takes place indoors, it is suitable for all ages, and admission is free.
This is a celebration, so there will be free serving of pastries, coffee, cake and soft drinks.

“Stor-Johan Arnt and Andrea” is part of the project “OPENING IN Ø”, which marks the opening of Bodø2024 in Øksnes. The project starts with a parallel opening ceremony taking place at Sandan farm on Saturday evening 3.2 at 18:30. Following is a celebration at the museum at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

The project highlights the possible role of art and culture in increasing population growth in the north. One goal is to develop Northern Norwegian performing arts, and investigate the potential of the High North as a geographical and artistic centre.

In 2024, Bodø has been named European Capital of Culture – this is the first time a city north of the Arctic Circle has been chosen as the cultural centre. This year, Museum Nord is also celebrating its 20th anniversary, with a number of events at each museum highlighting and celebrating the Foundation’s role in maintaining a vibrant and engaging cultural life in the north.

We are very happy that parts of this project will be played out at the museum!

The event is a collaboration with Sannan Teater, and is sponsored by Bodø2024, Museum Nord and Øksnes municipality.
