      NORDTING/The Northern Assembly is a multi-media performance by an artist collective led by Amund Sjølie Sveen with the assistance of Erik Stifjell and Liv Hanne Haugen, all of Norway. This conceptual piece combines lecture, performance and music mixed with a marching band, a powerpoint presentation and some political analysis. The performance investigates and questions the historical narratives of the North. With this performance, Nordting/The Northern Assembly asks questions like: “Are the people of Alaska ready for a United North? What are the most urgent political questions for the North today? Should the US buy Greenland? Who owns the fish? Would Alaska be better off without the lower 48? Will the dream of a United North, Circumpolar Pan-Arctica, become reality? The Nordting/The Northern Assembly has presented more than 48 performances or “assemblies” in the Arctic. Sveen describes the performance as a “nomadic people’s parliament of the North, a party for the periphery, and a separatist movement for an Arctic colony. After visits to Iceland, Finland and Sweden, the time has now come for Anchorage. There will be political analysis, PowerPoint, singing, dancing, voting and vodka.”
