During this years festival the performance company Baktruppen will present their results from last years Gallup Poll.
When Baktruppen came to Stamsund in March 2003, it was directly from Uganda. Due to the distance it was obvious that Stamsund was just as remote as Africa. So when Baktruppen returned in May it was as Norwegian Background, and the locals were invited to participate in an opinion poll about Stamsund.
In addition to get information about the conditions in Stamsund Baktruppen wanted to discuss art politics - what do the natives get and what do they want? It's artistic wrong to give the people what they want.
In Stamsund they wanted a cinema. Baktruppen cannot give the people what they want.
What Baktruppen will give to the people of Stamsund can be seen at the Coastal Ferry Quay, Friday the 4th of June between 16:00 and 20:00 where everyone who show up can vote for or against Baktruppen's work of art.
The majority decides whether the art will stay on land or in the ocean.
Don't miss this unique possibility to control your local environment!
