Siri & Snelle’s Land is a vegetable patch in the middle of Oslo. Here, the two glamour addicts reconnect with the earth after a trip to a country festival has transformed them into eco-wannabes. Emotions are allowed free reign, making this a nicely claustrophobic, intimate and grumpy experience. But they are not alone; they are accompanied on stage by a live band who operate in the murky waters between jazz, ambient, country and electronica. They also bring a Swedish assistant on stage, who helps them navigate between the commercial and the banal, the sad and the pathetic, the personal and the private.
Welcome to a show with great bravado and subtle messages.
