LETTER FROM The Editor

S

ummer has come and gone, leaving behind residual memories of what nearly everyone can agree upon as an epic period in Trondheim, jam-packed with festivals and events. The summer started a social atmosphere early with family festival Juba Juba, and ended on a creative note at Trondheim Maker Faire. Flocks of visitors were in town – be it for the UEFA SuperCup match between Madrid and Seville, the first amphitheater concert at Granåsen, Pro-Athlete Week – or one of the many other largescale events. And now as you read this, more than 35,000 students – 9,000 of them new – fill the city streets and campuses, as they cool down from matriculation. They’re making Trondheim their home. Our message: Hey students, we love you, welcome back. Though many of us assume that student life is exciting and fresh with opportunity, the reality is such that it can be quite trying. Is full-time student life an easy adjustment? Amongst getting acquainted with new courses and peers, gruelling study hours and possibly exhausting part-time work, not to mention student volunteering… an alarming number of students are saying, no – it’s rather challenging. In fact, a recent student health and enjoyment (SHOT) survey shows that far more students are feeling kind of lonely. More often than they should. Don’t fret friends; isolation can get the best of us all at times. Let’s take this time to remind you that this is one of the reasons that we exist. The List wants to let you know that we are here for you – providing you daily tips on what’s happening, and editorial content that sheds light on the invisible sides of Trondheim and

Keep an eye out for our posts on social media and reach out if you wish to be invited to our issue release parties. We want to get to know you. With this in mind, what could be more fitting than to announce The List’s new partnership with ‘Nordens beste studieby’, an interest-group with a mandate to make your study time for however long, the best possible. Educational institutions, student groups, various level of government and the business sector have all joined forces with an aim to make Trondheim the best study city in the Nordic Region. The List looks forward to relay all aspects of their collaboration from providing new housing, to innovative urban and campus development, to creating new opportunities for student projects and employment. Additionally, The List’s new partnership with Tron-

dhiemsregionen will take you farther than the city boundaries, and bring adjoining municipalities to you – because, after all this is one of the most exciting regions in Norway. Keep your eye out in this issue for day trips, hikes and adventures that lie in and around the city borders. Connect with openness and love during Gay Pride.

Kno Adria is a native of Mexico,

who lived the greater part of her life in the US, as well as periods in Spain, China, Costa Rica and, for the last four years, Norway. She would love to call herself a writer but thinks her limited dedication to art doesn’t give her yet permission. She spends the greater part of her days helping refugees come into their new lives, working as an advisor for the Municipality of Trondheim and she loves it! She has way too much to do, as she plans a retreat in her Mexican hometown, rehearses to perform in a play this November and takes a yoga teacher training. She is busy to say the least but really happy to have a chance to stay in Trondheim this summer and explore its surroundings; like thru the bike rides to Gjevilvasshytta and Hitra on consecutive fantastic long weekends.

Gulabuddin Sukhanwar is a

poet and writer. After being a political activist, journalist and human rights defender in Afghanistan, he came to Norway in 2013 and got political asylum protection in 2015. He holds Bachelor degree in Law and Political Science from Kabul University and diploma in Philosophy and Political Thoughts from Nansen Academy, Lillehammer, Norway. His main hobby and interest are reading, writing and exploring nature.

There is a message for everyone in ‘pride’, and it may be more than you

Words by Jeanette Mauricio

THE TWELFTH ISSUE

S

ummer can be the Pandora’s box of all complexes and fears about our bodies. People cannot stop apologising because their bodies do not look like those in advertisments. “Look at this! I cannot zipp it up!” says a friend who fights with her clothes. I look at her and recognize myself. I was like her. Blaming my body because it did not fit into that piece of fabric that I bought the previous summer. It is a pity that I have had to get sick in order to appreciate my body. I have one breast. It is the price I had to pay to win cancer. I have one breast, and I feel more alive than ever. Last June I celebrated my first year without treatment by going to Oslo pride. My dilemma that day was whether I would go to the parade with my prosthesis – and pretend that I had two breasts – or go without a prosthesis and accept that I am a one-breasted woman. Feminism taught us that “personal is political”. Therefore ‘to love,’ is a political issue. Heteropatriarchy has told us that we can only love the opposite sex. It does not recognise other ways of loving, including to love ourselves. In 76 countries homosexuality is banned. Loving someone of the same sex is illegal in those countries. You can end up in jail or dead on the street without justice for your murder. And when I say that patriarchy does not promote loving ourselves, I mean that we feel bad if we do not fit into the gender roles or body shapes that patriarchy tells us to play, or have. People, especially women, are experts in finding flaws and things to improve. For many years I did not like my breasts because they did not look like those in advertisments. I did not like them until the oncologist told me that one had to be removed. It was cancer, or me. I then realised that I had been too harsh with my body. I admire my body now. It kept strong and faced all the poison of cancer. I am alive! I cannot imagine critising my body again. 12

I love it. Thanks to my body, I can feel love. A hug, a kiss, a caress. I feel love. Many singers and songwrittes say: All we need is love. And love starts from within ourselves. Last year I was invited to participate in the Gender Week Festival, in Trondheim. After the panel discussion a Trans woman approached me and confessed that she does not have friends anymore. She lost them the day she confessed she did not want to live as a man anymore. “I don’t have friends, I have to start from zero. I’ve lived my whole life in Trondheim, I don’t know what I’m going to do,” she said. The danger of living in a patriarchal society is that it tells us how to love and live; It pushes us to play fixed gender roles and condemns those who break them. When I was in the Pride Parade in Oslo, I felt so overwhelmed. It was so touching to read all of the banners stating: "Proud of my gay son”; “Proud of my trans brother”; “Proud of my lesbian daughter”. “Free to love, free to be” was the banner that could be found everywhere in Oslo. It is unbelievable that in this century, when we believe we are so modern, it is necessary to provide a reminder that we are free to love and be whoever we want. There is no reason that loving


THE LIST

someone should send us to jail or cause death. Love is the basis of everything. I became really emotional when people on stage said that we have to be proud of who we are. We have to accept who we are. “This clapping is for you,” said one of the presenters. Tears started to run from uder my sunglasses. “Of course I have to be proud of who I am,” I thought. I felt so proud of my body, I felt so proud of being there without my prosthesis, I felt proud of being one breasted woman. I was crying for happiness. I felt so glad for being surrounded by people who were not ashamed of who they are: Heterosexual, homosexual, transexual, transgender, intersexual, bisexual, asexual and/or queer. All the people who went to the parade in Oslo wanted a society where people can love and be who they want to be in Norway or in other countries. Is not this the best lesson that we have to learn from the Pride? 17 September we have the opportunity to do the same in Trondheim. We can join the parade to say that we do not care about body shapes, gender, identities, or who you love, that we are proud of who we are and we are proud of diversity. Solidarity is the main topic this year, especially after what happened in Orlando. Solidarity to Norwegian lgtbq-people who find hard 13

to live in their own country. Solidarity to non Norwegian lgtbq- people who had to leave their countries to find the same rejection in Norway. Solidarity to all the lgtbq-people who live abroad and are fighting to have the same rights as hetero-people. On 17 September I will join the parade in Trondheim because I think it is important to remember that we have to be proud of who we are, being one or two breasted woman, being inter, bi, homo, hetero or queer. I will be there to say loud that we are free to love and free to be. Will you? ◼ Additional information: Trondheim Pride arranges different activities from the 10th to the 17th of September.

CLIMB ON Climbing has never been bigger in Trøndelag than right now. This bouldering route pictured, in Flatanger, was ‘discovered’ 15 years ago and has exploded in popularity in recent years after Adam Ondra declared it the hardest route in the world and one of his favourites. Don’t worry however, that was just one of several routes in Flatanger, there is also a valley with routes for every age and level, from 4 year old beginners to world class climbers.

A FEW DAYS WITH NATURE Words by Gulabuddin Sukhanwar

A

beautiful summer morning, colourful flowers and the ever-green nature of Trondheim make a day as memorable as it could be. I always take advantage of my solitary state by going out to find a spot where I can be alone, surrounded by pure nature. Then I am able to talk, and more importantly, listen to myself. This summer I explored Lian and Grønlia luxuriating in their greenery. Breathing the fresh air and admiring wonderful views from Lian hill I very much enjoyed the 10 kilometer walk. To intensify the experience and to immerse more deeply in the nature I decided to disconnect from the Internet and phone during the last week of July. It was an extraordinary experience which opened my eyes even more than I had expected. Instead of taking photos, I just focussed on the beauty around me to catch the moment. In a way it brought me back to childhood memories of our small but beautiful village Kalu Bamyan, Afghanistan. I was again on the hillsides singing and pasturing lambs and goats. After a couple of years I felt the same intense joy in the middle of Norwegian woods singing to myself and reflecting on the enormous changes that happened in my life. I´m writing this to encourage other foreigners, especially refuges to escape from their boredom by walking out of the city to soak up the stunning scenery offered by our mountains and surrounding nature. My experience shows that being away from the city life and WiFi is sometimes not just an option but it is, in fact, a necessary thing to do. As a refugee who has left everything behind, I know how hard it is to start again in a different country. And of course I do miss my family, friends, my homeland and many other features of the life I was forced to leave behind. This is perhaps why it’s so important to me to have a place where I can be only with my thoughts. I recommend to devote one day to have a walk in the area I found my childhood memories and learn how wonderful moments you can experience. By taking a break in a calm atmosphere, where only wind and pleasant leaves’ whispers can break the silence you will be free from machinery noise. All you will hear is the most delightful sound of green towering trees: you will be surrounded nature. This is medicine for the soul. Breathe it all in and feel your heart expand. ◼ THE TWELFTH ISSUE

Sound of the sea Oh sea!! You are a thousand untold stories You absorb a thousand unseen sorrows Whenever you share your tales Your tongue is a wave; your heart more infinite than the ocean From the silence and solitude of nights you wash up our woes on the shore You are shedding tears from lovers’ eyes on hearts of stone Oh sea! You are thousands of myths that flow over us as therapy The wind will come to you unbidden The lust-stained eyes of storm thundering news of your undressed body The fishermen‘s rods and bait trapping the softness of your body And even the bitter force of storm soothes and satisfies Oh sea! After the rain,  a multi-coloured gesture of loyalty appears as an arc around your neck  Whenever you share your tales the downpour overflows: a merry jig despite falling here on deaf ears  On this dry land of the ignorant none can hear your cries from the heart

Outdoor activities, dramatic sceneries of

mountains, fjords and the woods, all accompanied by rapidly changing weather conditions –that’s pretty much the shortest definition of Trondheim from the outsider’s perspective. When coming to Norway one is likely to hear the phrase the true Norwegian experience quite often in various contexts. Everyone knows it but do we really understand the meaning behind? This is what we present in the following section, the very essence of experiencing the nature while introducing you to cabin tradition, fishing and hunting rules as well as hiking tracks of different difficulty levels. Grab a cup of coffee, relax and let us take you for an exciting journey into Trondheim’s nature. ◼

THE FREEDOM TO ROAM Words and Photos by Adria Scharmen

Map sourced from http://www.ut.no/

T

he beauty of Trondheim and its surronding mountainscape is undeniable. Bymarka (or Sjetnemarka) has, and will continue to, entertain many søndagsturer, giving us a glimpse of the true Norwegian friluftsliv. The endless variations in greens, the clean crisp air, the blue sky splashed with dramatic clouds, the marsh that springs under our every step, the berries that tempt us to slowing down, the astounding sight of an elk or other Nordic wild creature, including unusually friendly Norwegians! 'Friluftsliv' is a concept so engraved in local culture, even sceptical (or just unaccustomed) foreigners like me have to eventually try and enjoy. After all, it is us foreigners who should be best placed to appreciate this freedom to roam. Not only because “when in Rome, do as the Romans” but because there are not that many countries in the world where roaming in open country is as popular as it is here, nor (unfortunately) where it is as safe to do so as it is here. Not to mention the beauty. Did I mention how breathtaking and unique Norwegian nature can be? I therefore say, if you haven’t already, come out of the city, be free and roam. Where you ask? Well, the possibilities are endless, as you will see in this issue of The List. At some point as we make our way through the what's on offer, we are bound to crave more of an adventure. Sometimes we have seen enough of Bymarka and want to come out and explore the wider Trøndelag. And if we have a few days to spare and some good gear, why not head towards one of the most beautiful hikes in the region; Trekanten, literally translated to The Triangle. Trekanten is located in the mountain area of Trollheimen, a very popular THE TWELFTH ISSUE

and picturesque area in the middle of the country. It is in the vicinity of the town of Oppdal, which is mainly known as a winter sports and ski destination. The area is covered with trails, lakes, cabins and trekking possibilities for all ages and levels of experience. For the sake of this article I will focus on Trekanten, because as the name implies, it has three points, three staffed cabins where one can stop and recharge; Trollheimshytta, Jøldalshytta and Gjevilvasshytta clearly connected by majestic (yet strenuous) day hikes. Keep in mind that these cabins are staffed until 18 September, after that they can be used only if you have a DNT key. Den Norskehjelp Turistforeningen – The Norwegian Trekking Association has a well translated website with information about the various cabin options (betjente and ubetjente, english.dnt.no/about-thecabins/). It also has information on how to become a member, the benefits and the rules of the game; very important even for us non members. For maps and route options visit the UT website (www.ut.no/omrade/4.1273/). This website can be “googletranslated” which works surprisingly well. Here you can get countless suggestions with detailed information about hiking areas, all over the country.

22

The hike, I have to admit, is not an easy one. Each side of the 'triangle' requires one full day. Considering the time it can take to get to the first cabin, I would recommend that the first day is used as a travel day, that way one can start the official triangle hike fresh and with no stress the next morning. The plan is to spend the following two nights at each of the other cabins, respectably, finishing where one started. At this point you can decide if you have the energy to travel back home or just stay an extra night and rest so the travel time can be allowed its own day. Sound challenging? Well let me just confess that to this day I have not been able to complete the whole circuit in one attempt, even though I have been to all three cabins at different times, three years in a row. The first disclaimer here would be that Trekanten is not a weekend hike, at least not for the inexperienced hiker. An experienced hiker would need a minimum of three long days, a 'regular' person maybe five, considering the travel time to and from the area. On my first trip to the area in the summer of 2014 I did the longest stretch of the tour, from Jøldalshytta to Gjevilvasshytta, 21km. Given that I was not as experienced as I am now, getting to the first cabin took long enough, consider it is just a mere 4km from the closest road/parking lot. The total km count (25) was long for one day and by the time we arrived to


THE LIST

HOW TO GET THERE Take the train to Oppdal (1,5hr) and bike from there towards the Gjevilvass lake (44 km). In the summer (July and August) there is a bus that goes once a day Thursdays and Sundays from Oppdal Ski station After that you have the option of taking a bus to Festa and walking 12km to the cabin. If you only have are a couple of days I suggest you stay around the cabin and take day hikes around the area. The lake is a sight for itself, and there are plenty of trails around it which can entertain the good part of a weekend. The same goes for any of the other cabins. The area is just as breathtaking in pieces as it is as a whole. Don’t hesitate to visit it just for the weekend. NTNU (OFFERS FOR STUDENTS) NTNU has its own sports association, NTNUI. They have a network of 22 cabins or Koias around the Trøndelag region. Visit their website for more detailed information about how to book cabins, suggested trips from cabin to cabin and other fun activities around the areas. They have a Koiematrisa which describes

Gjevilvasshytta it was way past midnight. We were delighted to find the helpful lady who runs the cabin in the summers waiting for us. We had let the staff at Jøldalshytta know we were heading that way and they knew to wait for the two foreigners taking their good old time. How could we not! We ran into a herd of reindeer. They were hard to miss with a helicopter herding them through the open mountain plains. Only in Norway! Arriving was a sweet relief; I thought we would never reach the cabin. We had some of our delicious dehydrated turmat and stared in silent awe at the sight of the valley with its magnificent lake. It must have been around 1:00 and even though the sun was not up yet, we could feel it making its way behind the mountains. In the summer if one cannot see the sun it is simply because it is hiding; behind the clouds or some tall, tall mountain. I remember not being able to sleep, as tired as my body felt my feet were burning, I had to wrap a wet towel around them... Putting them in the lake the next day was the best idea ever. Gjevilvatnet, sports a white sand beach something everyone should visit. The contrasting mountain tops still covered in snow, make for a most idyllic sight. Going for a swim is also highly recommended. Last year (summer 2015) I embarked on the trip for the second time, this time I made the insane choice of taking my mother on the shortest stretch of the trip.

From Jøldalshytta to Trollheimshytta, a mere 14km, but which took us almost nine hours! (Yeah, it was muddy and this is my mother we are talking about). Let’s just say her shoes went straight into the trash can after that trip. Shoes are key for these hikes; worn in, sturdy, water resistant. This time we had rented a car, but in retrospective I would have stayed one extra night at the cabin. Instead we drove back to Trondheim, arriving well pass midnight completely exhausted. Disclaimer number two, as you embark on your first long trekking adventure (especially if this is to be combined with camping, biking or your visiting mother), make sure you brace yourself with patience. Trekking and camping is a common activity in Norway, and just like anywhere else, an endeavor made for people NOT in a hurry. If you have the money, pay for the extra night at the cabin. If you don’t have the time, make it! Believe me it is worth it, especially because you should never think of the trip as just the Trekanten, getting there is half the fun. The travel there is something to think about. The logistics, should be worked out in advance. Unless you have a car or can rent one, getting there is not an easy task. If you only have a bike, then you start at the bottom and most accessible corner, at Gjevilvasshytta. Another possibility is of course taking a taxi to the cabin (or hitchhiking!) or try to coordinate with the near-impossible public transportation. ◼ 23

every cabin in relation to different things, rooms, access, terrain, number of beds, how to get there, etc. They even tell you which koia has a guitar or a waffle maker! Of the many available options, Kamtjønnkoia is the closest to Gjevilvatnet, and Telin the closest to Jøldalshytta (this one has a guitar and a waffle maker!) http://org.ntnu.no/koiene/ koiematrisa.php This site is unfortunately not translated to English. WANNA CAMP? Read about Allmannsretten The right to roam also known in Norwegian as the Allmannsretten ('everyone’s right') Allows you to camp pretty much anywhere you want as long as it is open country or uncultivated land (utmark). Not to be confused with fenced or cultivated land (innmark), or anywhere within 150 meters from any inhabited house or cabin, unless of course you ask for permission. It should come without saying, but remember to practice common sense and behave yourself, leave the area in the same condition you found it.

Words by Courtney Lineback

I

t’s no secret that Norway is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts the world over. There are few who can resist the stunning drama of the winding, twisting fjords, the majestic stillness of the jagged, snowcapped mountains, and the spectacular phenomenon of the midnight sun and the Northern Lights. Even those who prefer to stay indoors, toasty warm with a cold, local pilsner in hand, can choose to experience Norway’s natural splendor from the comfort of one of the many cruises that travel up and down the coast. The cruise-goers, along with those who prefer a more handson, rugged experience of Norwegian nature, tend to put gold stars next to the most wellknown destinations: Lofoten Islands, Geirangerfjord, Jotunheimen National Park, and Preikestolen, to name a few. You may have noticed that it is not all that often (or ever, really) that Trondheim makes it to the top of a “most impressive Norwegian outdoor experiences” list. However, I’d like to tell you that, based on personal experience, those lists are missing out on something. If news of Trondheim’s fantastic openair possibilities comes as a slight surprise to you, don’t be too hard on yourself. I’ve lived in this dynamic little city for almost four years now, and as far as local explorations go, I’ve never made it much further than a nice day hike up to Gråkallen or Geitfjellet. Bymarka is an incredible asset to Trond-

heim, and I know I’m not the only one who cherishes the fact that it is possible, in mere minutes, to completely escape from the sights and sounds of the city. But for those who have taken the loop around Theisendammen one time too many, there are an abundance of other hiking and camping options available within short driving, biking or busing range from the city center. Jonsvatnet, the lake that supplies the municipality’s drinking water, is an approximate 30 minute drive from Trondheim, and is a perfect option for those who want to have an adventure close to home. There are hundreds of little hiking trails and small summits around the lake, but one particular summer evening, my boyfriend and I decided to embark on an overnight hiking/ camping trip and tackle the highest point in the Malvikmarka: Jervfjellet. Jervfjellet stands at a respectable 504 meters high, and the hike to the top is relatively quick and easy…or so the information page on turistforeningen.no said. We started out quite late and were in no hurry, due to the wonderfully endless nights of the Norwegian summer. However, we somehow managed to lose the trail within the first ten minutes of the hike, and decided to flex our orienteering muscles instead of spending time attempting to relocate the lost trail. To be fair, I have never actually done orienteering of any sort, so I was doing more following than leading and my pace was a bit slow: the deliciously sweet cloudberries and small, tart blueberries were seductively calling out to me. I have an embarrassing lack of self control when it comes to wild fruit. Even though we weren’t following a path of any sort, the going wasn’t too tough and it was always clear where we were headed, which was up. In 25

that sense, the trip up Jervfjellet is perfect for beginners and experienced hikers alike. No matter your method, it would be very difficult not to make it to the top eventually, although I would recommend that you try your best to stick to the path… and if you do choose to find your own way, maybe keep the amount of wine you bring along to a two bottle minimum. When you do finally make it, the view offers a spectacular reward for your efforts. Jonsvatnet sprawls out beneath you, catching the sun. Cozy farms with twinkling lights dot the countryside, and a thin, shimmering slice of Trondheim fjord is visible in the distance. When we first got to the top and set up camp, a thick, wet fog was slowly sliding its way towards us. We could see a faint glimmer of the sunset over the fjord through the clouds, and we were happy to be there and to be warming up by the crackling bonfire. Then, suddenly, the clouds on the horizon melted away, and we were completely immersed in the most incredible light: soft pinks and golds, vibrant reds and oranges. It looked as if the entire world before us was alive with the glow of the setting sun. Jonsvatnet almost seemed to reflect the light from within. It is true what they say: no picture could ever do it justice. When I first moved to Trondheim, there was a sign outside of one of my favourite bars in Bakklandet that said, “In the middle of nowhere Norway lays opportunity”. These words have stuck in my head throughout the years, and they couldn’t be more accurate. If it’s an epic outdoor opportunity that you’re looking for, you needn’t look any further than the middle of your very own Trondelag backyard! ◼ THE TWELFTH ISSUE

LEAVE YOUR PHONE AT HOME AND HIKE IN BYMARKA Words by Katarzyna Gąsiorek Photo by Nikol Herec

Therefore I am happy that in Trondheim you are always surrounded by people who can recommend where to go and will share their memories and tips. The List’s new Head of Sales, Matias Bretteville-Jensen, originally from Oslo but living three years in Trondheim got so inspired by working on this issue of The List that he packed his stuff and decided to disconnect over a weekend and treat himself to a true Norwegian experience. I found it a great opportunity to learn more about Bymarka and to plan my trip. As a starting point of his trip he chose Ringvål, which is one of three possibilities one has when reaching Kobberdammen, a lake in the middle of North Bymarka. This is the most demanding option in terms of length of hike. There are two alternatives for those who do not feel like walking for approximately four hours. You can either start at Vestoppfarten at Ila or take a bus to Skistua, one hour or 20 minutes of a calm

Map sourced from http://www.ut.no/

ymarka, the closest touch of pure wild nature just behind your door, is maybe sometimes underestimated by those who value demanding hikes into the woods. But it does not seem to disappoint those who, like me, have just started their outdoor adventures or prefer strolling around in the nature rather than challenging themselves in harsh conditions. It is easily accessible and offers recreation to everybody, no matter how sporty you are, how old you are and how much time you have to spend. All can find trails suitable to their needs and capabilities and yet feel so far away from the city enjoying the sound of silence. As a newcomer to town I find it a great destination for Sunday trips, the tradition of which will never stop to delight me. Bymarka was the very first recreation area I learnt about after I arrived in Trondheim a month ago. It is on my to-do-list together with Ladestien and Malvikmarka once the autumn winds have driven me away from Brattørkaia, Vestrekanalkai and Fosenkaia. There is so much to see, investigate and admire but since I have not been so much into wild outdoors before, I am definitely looking for a mild trip with a prospect to overnight, but still close enough to come back home if the woods scare me off.

walking, respectively. The beauty of Bymarka boils down to the simple fact that you barely need any preparation. It is, without doubt, advisable to do it the Norwegian way: good hiking shoes and clothes fitting to the weather "there is no bad weather, only bad clothing". Remember to bring food and water and if you decide to stay overnight or until late evening, do not forget about firewood and even more food! However, the forest is dense and you are not allowed to tinder trees in the woods. An interesting tip from Matias is to bring tampons to quickly set a fire and then look for fallen trees which you can tinder with an axe, if you did not forget to bring one. As a city girl I was curious what to take to Bymarka apart from shoes, clothes, tampons and axe in order to make it even more fun. I must admit that Matias’ answer suggesting chocolate, trail mix and whisky, especially if you stay overnight in a tent, satisfied my curiosity perfectly. How is sleeping in a tent better than in a famous Norwegian cabin? Well, according to Matias it makes you closer to nature and more distant from civilization, providing also opportunity to encounter wildlife and observe it more from the inside perspective rather than socializing in a cabin. This is the very essence of experiencing nature from his perspective: to be alone, disconnected from phone and Internet while charging your own batteries. ◼

COFFEE BY THE FJORD Words by Katarzyna Gąsiorek Photo by Nikol Herec

Ladestien being a popular track for Sun-

day trips brings the true Norwegian experience of nature but is also perfect for those who prefer to spend their leisure time with a cup of coffee and a sweet bun in their hands. Ladekaia is a newly open café located at the track, just by the fjord, with an amazing view from the windows. This is exactly the destination for those who are not so much into planning demanding trips and look for a treat at the end of their hike. The track offers opportunity for a pleasant walk, which is not too long, however not too short neither. There is no need for special equipment, you just have to prepare yourself for breathtaking views as you will be walking along the coastline. A drink and a sweet snack in Ladekaia will reward your effort and make you ready to walk back home. ◼ INFO Mon-Thu: 13:00-23:00 Fri: 13:00-00:00 Sat: 11:00 – 00:00 Sun: 11:00-23:00 ADDRESS Leiv Eirikssons vei 42, 7040 Trondheim, Norway

THE ART OF BEING IN NATURE WITH A RIFLE IN YOUR HAND Words by Tijana Ostojić

E

very fall, for a week or so, Snorre wakes up before the sunrise and picks up his hunting rifle from the storage room. Then, he grabs the backpack he prepared the night before, and heads towards the meeting point his hunting team had agreed upon. He arrives at the agreed place, nearby the woods where the team will hunt during the day, and greets his fellow hunters. As they share their first cup of blå kafe (the name for a coffee prepared over a campfire), nature awakens and it is time to agree on the hunting ground and give out posts to all the team members. It is roughly 7am now and the first day of the hunting season. And while the rest of the world is brewing their teas and coffees, Snorre and his hunting team are walking towards their assigned posts. The ground is covered with frost and crackles underneath their boots, as they walk further into the woods. The first streaks of the morning sun shine through the trees and fall onto the icicles that had formed during the night. With the sunshine, a wide range of colour pops up, allowing one to see the entire colour spectrum of autumn. Fog still lingers in between the trees and mingles around your shoes, and with each step, it disperses in all directions. It almost feels as if the woods are enchanted, or at least belong to a high production movie set. Snorre now sits at his post. It is high up on a stool that oversees the woods. He covers his shoulders with a poncho in order to shield himself from the biting cold. Even though it is still September, the morning temperatures are no longer kind, and cool wind swished through the branches. His teammates are scattered throughout the area, and each post is strategically placed as to ‘close off ’ their hunting terrain. THE TWELFTH ISSUE

“It is very important that we have control over the terrain you hunt on. No hunter will fire his rifle unless there is a ‘background’ behind the animal. The ‘background’ implies a hill, or a rock, something that will stop your bullet in case you miss or the bullet goes through. At all times you must have the control over the distance that ranges from where you sit and the background. We must remember that we are not alone in the woods. It is open to everyone, even during the hunting season, hence why the safety is excruciatingly important. For example, hunters never walk together with shells in their rifles – those are always stored in their pockets, and only when hunters are at their post, the rifles are loaded and the safety on.” As Snorre explains, in the distance, we hear a dog bark. His eyes intently search the area from where the bark was heard. A moment later a voice from Snorre’s radio reaches our ears. “One of the dogs has sensed a moose at the other side of the terrain. They will guide it towards the closest post," he says. Usually, one or two hunters will walk with dogs (elghund) around the terrain, while the rest of the team sits in their posts. Dogs that they use for hunting are specially trained to track moose. Unlike the case with the fox hunting, when hunting for moose, dogs are not running. Rather, it is a very controlled process. The dog will guide the moose to one of the posts, or if let loose, it will run up to the moose and begin to bark. Barking can either paralyse the moose (then the dog leader will have a chance to sneak up to the moose and shoot at it) or the moose will try to run away from the dog. In such a case, dog leader will give messages over the radio informing others about the moose and the direction they are headed, age and gender of the moose. “Our sessions can last from an hour up to five or six hours. When one of us successfully shoots a moose, intestines are immediately removed either by the shooter or the dog leader. Then we make a decision on whether to continue the hunt, or to have a break. On our lunch breaks we would prepare a pot of blå kafe and eat our matpakke. Everything tastes better in the nature, but nothing comes close to a steaming cup of blå kafe." "Over the last decade the population of moose has increased in numbers, hence why we were allowed to increase the number of 28

kills,” continues Snorre. He waves his hand dismissively. “If the numbers are not regulated, not all of them would survive the winter. We pay close attention at age and gender of the moose when we hunt. Hunting for too many bulls, for example, would disturb the balance. With few bulls left, cows, picky by nature, would wait for their right mate, which in turn would lead to late calves. One must be mindful of nature’s ways.” A single rifle shot is heard across the woods. A flock of birds fly away and the silence befalls the woods again. The heavy clouds that move fast and low across the sky shield sunrays. Soon enough, cold drizzle begins soaking the ground. Snorre reaches for his backpack and pulls out a canvas. He then stoops underneath the branches of the trees and attached the canvas by its corners making a perfect shelter from the rain. “There is quite a lot of work to do once a moose is shot. It has to be sent to a professional slaughterhouse or a butcher. If you prefer to do the work yourself, that is also possible. An ATV takes the moose to a barn, where it is skinned, hung up and left to mature. The barn plays a pivotal social role, the aspect important for families and friends – especially children. They are given knives and taught how to skin the animal. They get an opportunity to learn about the meat safety control. Two or three of our team members, including myself, are trained and licensed for the process of the meat safety control. The trick to healthy meat is in the way it is handled after the animal has been killed. Clean and sterile knives and latex gloves are one of the precautionary measures we must take." More voices can be heard on the radio. Snorre listens, replies. “It is time for a break.” He says and steps down from his stool. “Traditionally, hunting has been motivated for food gathering purposes, meaning that trophy hunting is not what the Norwegians are after, or at least, not the majority of them,” Snorre says. “Myself,” he adds, “I have hunted for thirty odd years, and during the season, I tend to shoot a moose on average. I cannot say that any of those were big bulls, thus no trophies were hung on the wall. On many occasions, I have let the animal pass, all while sitting at their close proximity and admiring their elegance and ease.” Hunting is counterintuitive, he explains.


THE LIST

"It is not about the kill, as many people believe it to be, or even about socialising over drinks. There is that too, and although the social aspect of it is important, most of the time while moose hunting you will be alone – sitting still at your post and being quiet as a mouse. And for myself, that is the joy of hunting." He seems to be lost in thought for a moment or two, before continuing again. “If ‘the kill’ is important, it is hardly unlikely that the moose hunting will give you pleasure. If you do not find pleasure in sitting amidst the trees, becoming part of nature, this type of hunting turns into a painful experience.” In the distance, there is shuffle among the trees and his friends join him, smiles across their faces, rifles on their backs. Among them, there are two women and a 16-year-old, who during his first hunting season has managed to kill five or six moose – something that has never been heard of before. Nature finds its ways to reward your quietness. By sitting still for hours you experience it in a way that is not possible when you go for a hike, ski or bike tur, pick berries or do orienteering. If you manage to sit still, but really still, you will begin to notice the nature around you in a way you weren’t allowed to before. You will manage to catch glimpses of animals in their usual routines. Birds will land on your shoulders; deer and foxes will pass by you unaffected by your presence. It’s marvellous way to experience the nature. Hunting season begins around 25 September and lasts until the end of November. ◼ INFO Want to go hunting this year?

FISHING FOR SALMON ADVENTURE

W

hen, a couple of months ago, over a cup of morning coffee, a friend of mine mentioned that we should go fishing, I envisioned a late morning trip down to the Ravnkloa’s fish market. Still groggy with sleep, I muttered yes, and we continued our morning chatter, letting the subject of fishing occupy the backseat of our thoughts. Or, in my case,subject of the probable answer to "What are we having for middag?" type of questions. It would take the whole winter, spring and good part of summer for us to revisit the topic again. In order to understand the error of my judgment when considering my friend’s fishing proposal, I should share the underlying lesson I was taught during my first week in Trondheim: the more dull the suggested activity sounds, the more likely you have the wrong idea of what you got yourself into. For example, when someone suggests a walk after Christmas dinner, you are not going for a short walk around the block – pack food (even though you’ve just eaten) and dress for many hours of tiring hiking, through knee-deep snow with nothing but a single headlamp to guide your way. It makes for a splendid story, which my friends take as a part of southern exaggeration. To this day, they do not believe half the stories I’ve told – with or without a picture as a solid piece of evidence. Although maybe it is just me who got lucky enough to spend my time here in Trondheim with a group of very adventurous Norwegians? Anyhow, back to fishing. Despite having learnt my lesson the hard way, I was still mildly surprised when my friend told me to pack my sleeping bag and few other things I might need, since we will be leaving the following morning. My enquiry as to where we are headed was met by a puzzled look as my friend said, “Eh, Salmon River fishing, of course. And we will not be back until we catch a salmon big enough for adecent family meal!" he added THE TWELFTH ISSUE

a moment later, amusement ringing in his voice. I nodded excitedly, not entirely sure if he was joking or not. It turned out,we had obtained a licence for salmon fishing at the Nidelva River for the following 24 hours. And what an adventure that was! One of many, or perhaps, the most important reason why I fell in love with Trondheim, is its countless oasis of nature, which allow you to escape the city life within few minutes of brisk walk. I, accustomed to long drives when ‘hunting’ for a peace of nature far from the sounds of highways, found Trondheim to be nothing short of a paradise. Nevertheless, salmon fishing at Nidelva, was a surprise of its own, as I found myself surrounded by trees, birdsong, fast running river and quite few mosquitos, right in the heart of Trondheim. On our way to Nidelva, I was told that obtaining a fishing licence is swift and involves no hassle. “In fact,” my friend said, “you can do it on your phone. Here, look.” True enough, by a simple visit to INATUR website you can obtain the licence, not only for the salmon fishing, but also for other types of freshwater fishing throughout Norway. 30

As I browsed the website, I noticed an option to choose a county and a municipality of your liking, as well as a preferred timeframe, giving your more specific and targeted search results. The prices of day passes ranged from 50,00 to 500,00 NOK for freshwater fishing and 200,00 to 370,00 NOK for salmon fishing in the area of Trondheim. “This is great!” I said while sitting impatiently in the car. My friend laughed, and went on to tell me that TOFA (which stands for Trondheim Omland Fiskeadministrasjon) is the organization responsible for arranging fishing in the Trondheim’s area. Namely, through agreements with the municipality of Trondheim and Statkraft TOFA offers day passes (other

“Rower fishes the fish, the ‘watcher’ reels it in. I smiled, knowing the joy of both." than, but also including those advertised on INATUR’s website) and seasonal passes for salmon fishing. For the aforementioned passes one must apply by 1 December prior to the start of the fishing season. These fishing passes are divided into 13 different areas, each having its own distinctive features. The applications may begroup or individual ones, and the winners will be drawn by 1 February before the beginning of the season. He went on and told me about Trondheim JFF, an organization that offers courses and information for both fishing and hunting, should I ever feel the need to check it out. “What about fishing on lakes, or even sea fishing?” I asked while toying with a box

of colourful flies intended to be used later today for salmon fly-fishing. “Well, fishing on lakes is somewhat less popular than salmon fishing itself. However,” he added, “the options are many, be it in Bymarka, Malvik or Jonsvatnet area.” I imagine there was a moment of silence before my friend spoke again. “I haven’t told you this before, but there’s a lake called Leirsjøen in Bymarka which has recently opened its doors to fishing after decades of being a prohibited fishing zone.” Why is that, I asked, my mind swarming with possible explanations, each one more dramatic than the previous. “Oh, it was a drinking water resource for Trondheim.” He said nonchalantly. “Now the honour befell water in Melhus.” By the time we touched upon the topic of fishing down at fjord (information easily available at both TOFA and Trondelag’s website) I was stunned by the scenery I had encountered. Along the both banks of Nidelva lines of trees and fields unravelled, sun shone through the heavy clouds and ducks swam along a islet that protected them from the river’s torrents. Anchored to the riverbank we stood on, two wooden rowboats floated against the crawling 31

waves. I pulled out my phone and snapped a picture. For the following 24 hours my phone lay on the bottom of my bag, forgotten until it was time to go home. Nidelva offers 8km of its water for salmon fishing – from Trondheim sentrum to Nedre Leirfoss. And even though considered short, the river is broad, its rapids fast and streams strong, thus Nidelva is often said to be an undiscovered salmon fishing gem right in the heart of Trondheim. In fact, astonishing record was made back in 1954, when local fishermen caught a salmon that weighted 31.8kg. I listened to the facts about the salmon fishing at the Nidelva, as we unpacked the rods, flies, bobbers, hooks, leaders, net and other equipment. Only then, as if an afterthought, we unlocked the doors of a small cabin, which was awarded to my friend and his group of fishing buddies through the system of drawing allocation. Then we tossed our sleeping bags in a small room and hurried outside, eager to hop into the small rowing boat and begin salmon fishing. We ended up being three for that salmon fishing trip. And I, believe it or not, while crossing my fingers and hoping salmon would bite the bait, enjoyed more the serenity that comes with fishing, and rowed to the shore empty handed. Sometime before the midnight, equipped with headlamps my friend and the third member of our fishing gang, Rovar, tried their luck again. While you can fish from the shore if that suits you better, salmon fishing from a rowboat is rather rare. It takes two to fish from a rowboat – one to row against and along the currents and other to watch the two rods fixed at the sides of the boat. That night, Rovar rowed the boat, while my friend assumed the role of ‘watcher’. They’ve set up two rods – a wobbler and a fifty-year-old ‘old style’ fly fishing rod. The avid salmon fishermen had caught a salmon that weighed 9kg sometime after midnight. I was not on the rowboat when it happened, but was told that it took them around twenty minutes to reel in the fish. And this is not a matter of southern exaggeration. My friend and Rovar had burst into the cabin, excitedly letting me on the details of their catch. ◼

HALIBUT FISHING IN SEARCH OF GIANTS

This article has been ten years in the making, but then again fishing has always had an element of the Guinness about it: great things come to those who wait.

I

first started travelling to the island of Bondøya in 2006, right up on the northern edges of Nord-Trøndelag, in the municipality of Vikna, outside of Rørvik. It is the island where my wife’s family originate (her maiden name is Bondø), and my father-in-law was in fact the penultimate person to be born on the island. In his day they would have to row to the next island for school, and on the neighbouring island, the woman residing there would raise a flag to alert the people if she went into labour when her husband was out fishing. A useful system to have in place when you consider she had ten children in total… Today nobody lives on Bondøya all year round, but previous inhabitants and their descendants maintain the nine houses and preserve some of the traditions. It is primarily a holiday destination, where families come to relax and get away from it all, but we often joke about the amount of work which is involved in said ‘relaxation’. Out on the peripheries of the North Sea, where the wind and conditions are so THE TWELFTH ISSUE

strong that trees rarely grow higher than a large man, properties require constant maintenance. But aside from the hammering and sawing, the main pastime is fishing. Professional Pastimes “This is a hobby Wil,” my father-in-law Arild is at pains to point out. But on Bondøya they do hobbies like Bill Hicks 32

did smoking: constantly, enthusiastically and… well, until death do them part. I was once told that if Norwegians of this parish were speaking about a subject I could not follow I could guess and say “fesk?”. There is a 50% chance they were speaking about fishing and the other 50% of the time they would quite happily change the subject to fishing. Mackerel, cod, cole fish, crab, herring… they all have their seasons and are made into different delicacies when landed on the island. But the fish on most peoples tongues, both literally and figuratively, is halibut. Kveite. ‘Fishing’ on Bondøya is not the casual cast of a line into a lake, with a cup of coffee waiting on the bench. Many of the people on this island have been fishermen in their professional lives and it’s a point of pride to ply their trade effectively and produce maximum results. I have been taking photos on the island for the past ten years and following my latest foray this summer, I am ready for entry level to novice category of halibut fishing. Here’s what I know:


THE LIST

Preparation This first thing I realise is that this is not a cheap hobby, in terms of money nor time (nor fingers). It is a two day process and before we even leave port Arild has used 750 kroner worth of herring (sild), chopped up as bait for the lines we are to set. Preparation is everything - as we heave the heavy blue barrels of lines and hooks on to the deck, Arild minds me to watch my fingers. I think he is concerned for me getting caught on the rusty teeth, but no, he tells me he is worried I will mess up the order. When we cast the lines out at sea there is no time to reorder them and one hook out of place can cause you fingers to be tied up. Conditions on that day at hand are perfect and the sea is as flat as pancake, though visibility is very low. Arild knows these seas like the back of his hand, but Vikna is an archipelago made up of over 6.000 islands, not to mention countless ‘non-islands’ called skarvskjæret, rocky outcrops which appear only at low tide, which will scupper your boat if you’re not careful. So navigation is important and newcomers to the area should take care. We also take care to check the engine before departure, wise seeing as we are going several hours out to sea. There is a water filter in the engine, but over time the diesel can accumulate some water and this, or air pockets, can cause the engine to cut out. The Lay of the Lines Several hours out to sea we find one Arild’s special spots. Even if I could work out where we are in the topography-less mist, I am sworn to secrecy and I don’t think I would risk blabbing when my safety is in his hands. Ideally we are looking for continuous sea depths of between 25 and 50 metres, though you can fish halibut much deeper and other fishermen I have spoken to swear by 90-100 metres. Once we find our spot we drop a rock and our marker (an orange buoy), and then the herring is hooked on as the line reels out. No time for mistakes - if you miss a hook let it go, or else it will be your finger on the end of the line! Laying the lines is a peaceful and monotonous activity, which I feel gives you a connection with both the sea and the process. On the way back home I joke that one day in the future you might be able to program a boat to go out autonomously, lay 33

THE TWELFTH ISSUE


THE LIST

I ask Arild about the fishing and what can one expect. “The largest halibut ever caught is as much as 250 kilos. There was one guy in these parts who caught an 182 kilo one on just a fishing line. He was alone in a small boat and so he had to tow it slowly home to get help draw it in!” Three Men in a Boat the lines, catch the fish and bring it back completely unmanned. The stern stare from Arild suggests that this is not a good joke. I am probably wrong anyway: the sea has always been a difficult beast to tame, with salt water corroding even the best innovation and many an initiative left wasted by the wayside. The knowledge that Arild and his forefathers have accumulated from a life on the ocean cannot be imparted in an article, or even a book for that matter, but I persist. THE TWELFTH ISSUE

The next day we go out to draw in the lines, this time accompanied by local chef, Thomas Valø, who’s farm and restaurant Buøy Gård was recently listed in the prestigious White Guide, rating the best restaurants in the Nordics. The sea is much choppier today, and we are soon feeling it. We are travelling on full stomachs, having feasted earlier on clam pasta, fresh crab and tenderloin beef from Thomas’ farm. This is the great pleasure of spending time on the Bondøya: eating great local ingredients in their natural habitats. This fishing trip is part 34

of the process of preparing the next meal. Of course, 10 years into my Bondøya adventure, I am still classically unprepared like any good ‘tourist’ and my jeans are soon saturated. Half amused, half pitiful glances from the other two men. But the exhilaration of drawing in the lines soon overwhelms the discomfort and when the fish start coming on board there is work to be done. We have to get the fish out of the water, de-hook them, cut their throats and lug them into waiting receptacles. It’s bloody and unpleasant but a quick death is the most humane way and ensures the best quality fish. Any fish which is dead when we pull it in is chucked back, as is the unused bait. A brigade of seagulls follow us all the way from shore eating everything we throw at them, though even they know better than to eat any of the dead fish we cast overboard. There is a variety of fish which we catch, though only a handfull of the prized hali-

but. It’s such an interesting fish to look at: flat bottom feeders, pug ugly on one side, and clean appetising white on the other. The boat continues to bob backwards and forwards, and every time it tilts to one side the bloody fish water spills over the edge of one of the buckets and straight over the brim of my undersized wellies. Thomas sees this and laughs, as do we all at my pathetic attempts to shake the fish from the hooks. When I get home I moan to my wife that my nice Norwegian woollen socks have been ruined. She also laughs and tells me that “now they are real Norwegian socks”. Catch of the Day The job is not yet finished however. Arild steers the boat through the night mist, pointing out the different landmarks and relating stories attached to each; a verbal map which steers us safely to port. Even in these rough conditions Arild would happily come out and do this seven hour process on his own, hooking himself to a safety line in the unlikely event of him falling in. As we near home Thomas and I heave ourselves out of the cabin and start to gut the fish. It is wise to do this outside of port to keep all the blood, guts and inevitable bird crap away from where you live and eat. The fish is then placed on ice (another big cost for the hobby fisherman) and we wash the boat before retiring for a late night nip and a warm bed. The cost of the hobby is offset by every registered vessel having a free quota for how much fish they can sell. I have always been a little vague about the details but Arild tells me that you can sell up 50.000 kroners’ worth a year without paying tax. The next day I travel out to Vandsøy, a local island with an industrial fish processing hall, where local fishermen can drop off their catch, refuel and by ice. It’s not pretty but that’s kind of its charm, with rust

rainbows decorating the docks, and planks which have been whittled down by years of fish being deposited. Vandsøy is strategically placed because of a huge annual migration of cod to these waters, which has been recorded for a thousand years. During the winter a 5.000 tonne ship will visit ever day, collecting the locally caught fish and taking it back to be processed and sold. Our catch is heaved up on a crane and weighed in the different categories. And finally, on an oily 35

warehouse floor, on a workmanlike island somewhere out to sea in Nord-Trøndelag, I get a glimpse of that feeling of satisfaction and pride which has driven Arild and his contemporaries for so many years. The whole exhausting experience leaves you craving more, not least the sight of a huge halibut brought in by one of the other fishermen. The largest I have ever seen caught on Bondøya was just shy of 70 kilos. One day I will slay that statistic and catch a giant. ◼ THE TWELFTH ISSUE

H

ello! My name is Michał, I’m running Trondheim Sykkelservice at Innherredsveiein 49. I come from Poland and have been living Trondheim since 3 years. My hobby is travelling and I love mountains – this is why I’m here. As a great fan of enduro I bike a lot in Trondheim area and would love to share my favourite bike trails with you. This is definitely the best way of spending free time! My experience comes from Polish and Czech mountains, Finale Ligure, Madeia and many many other European trials.Also Sør-Trøndelag offers a couple of interesting places to ride, for example Vassfjellet or Oppdals area. The trails I’m about to describe for you will bring you lots of fun and most importantly they are located just here, in Bymarka. You can even go there for a afternoon training or just after a busy day at work. Before I will describe the track, it is extremely important to remind you that you should follow the safety rules on the trial and watch out for people spending their free time there. It’s also important to prepare yourself – you should take enough water and some energy snacks. Take a spare tube and some tools for your bike (pump, multitool). I strongly recommend at least knee protection and helmet. It’s also nice to have some eye protection against mud and flies. Go over your full suspension bike if it’s in a good condition. Do it yourself or stop by at my bike workshop – a quick check up is free of charge. You have to be sure about your bike on this technical trails, so you can focus on what’s the essence of the trip. Mtbmap.no will help finding trails in the woods, use it on your smartphone browser or download it to

Garmin (GPS). It also remains a source of inspiration for different trips. Be aware that I’m offering you demanding trails which can be considered as a good training before enduro competition. I set the starting point at Henriksåsen parking. You can get there by bus or bike up Fjellseterveien from Byåsen Butikksenter. First part is a wide gravel road which switches into a nice technical uphill towards the top of Henriksåsen. You’ll easily notice where the downhill to Grønlia begins. In the beginning it’s fast and flowy then it’s becoming more rough with 1-2 sketchy fragments. My suggestion is to go then from Grønlia around Skjellbreia lake using Knovlestien trail. This is not a downhill, it’s a fantastic training for the balance, which you may find challenging. However, biking across the wide stream is worth to sweat a bit! From there we have to get to Snaken 1. It’s a perfect trail on the way down, however in this case we will use it as a lift to get to Skistua.

From Skistua we need to find a narrow trial following to Udbyestien. That trail is rough and usually wet! Be careful it’s almost DH track – pure fun! Now you have to follow beautiful Kobberdammen lake, I recommend the East side but the West one is nice too. You’ll get to an asphalt Tommerdalsveien road, where after a couple of meters you need to go to gravel road across small parking and get to Krumtappen trail. This is a tough uphill – try to get to the top without putting a foot down! You’ll get almost to the top of Geitfjellet – rest a little. Take a deep breath and head to Våttakammen. This trial is mainly down, but be prepared for a few pedaling sections and small uphills. From Våttakammen keep going down – it gets more technical so don’t be suprised by some difficult drops and pointy rocks. Go across gravel road (be sure you don’t crash with an xc biker, pretty busy route for them) and continue to Pisken trial – I know your hands are tired but hold on – it’s almost over. Most will be exhausted at this point so you can easily get back to town from here. However, I believe some of you just warmed up. Set yourself to climbing mode and go up on the boring gravel road untill you finally reach Lykkjestien. It’s an intermediate trial and using the map go to st. Olavsspranget. There is a great spot for a selfie of your sweaty face with a stunning view behind! I recommend it also as a great place for a romantic date. Use the same way back and take right to Tømmerstien. This is an exhausting technical trial, you may need to walk with a bike at some points. You will pop out on a gravel road, from where you need to get to Gammelstien. This is a technical trail as well, first part is a climb, however it ends up with exciting downhill. When you get to Driftsvegen, continue down and find a trail called Garnisonstien. This is your last downhill today, I’m pretty sure it will speed up your heartbeat. At the end you have the possibility to jump over a small stream, find this spot on the left side. Please, check it out before you decide to jump. I think now you are tired enough – you can go home. I hope next day muscle pain will remind you how good job you did! ◼ THE TWELFTH ISSUE

something before being lonely would become my life. Therefore Heidi Fosslands opinion piece in Adressa titled “Altfor mange studenter er ensomme” struck a chord with me. Fossland talks about how many students actually feel lonely, when 1 out of 5 students feel lonely often or all of the time. Fossland operates with 7000 being lonely. In order to combat loneliness Fossland urges students to talk to each other and to join an organization or an activity. I completely agree with Fossland, because I did what she is suggesting. When I began my radiography studies in 2014, I had made up my mind to make the most of my time in Trondheim. After I bought a three-year membership for Studentersamfundet, I decided to apply to become a volunteer. I am grateful that I was accepted. It truly changed my life for the better. Not only do I get to sell thirsty students cheap beer, but I have also made friends. In order to get to know each other we rented a NTNUI Cabin (I recommend Øvensenget). As long as one person is a member of NTNUI you can rent any of their 22 cabins. Depending on the cabin, the price is 20/30 kr per person. The reason it is so inexpensive is that there are volunteers maintaining the cabins free of charge, this includes chopping firewood. If memory serves me, there is also a guitar at all the cabins. I vividly remember everyone singing, “you are my fire…” which turned out to be some boyband song, not usually my cup of tea, but on that trip it was amazing. I made some great friends that trip. In order to book cabins you need to go to either Akademika (the book store) at Dragvoll at 09:00 or Akademika at Gløshaugen at 08:00. It is first come first serve. For more information about NTNUI Cabins check out http://org.ntnu.no/koiene/ NTNUI Ski og Fjellsport is a group that arrange a lot of different trips, ranging from beginners to experienced. If you want to see what they are offering, check out their facebook page.

I am scared that I will fail in my endeavor to convince you to become a volunteer in Trondheim. My goal is to offer you advice on what you can do/where you can volunteer in Trondheim. I have mainly focused on parts of organizations that focus on outdoor activities such as, but not limited to hiking. In order to convince you, I will try to paint a picture that volunteering or taking part in organized activities can help combat loneliness. I believe that combating loneliness is important because I have been lonely myself. Let me give you a short introduction of myself. My name is Thomas, I am 27 years old and right now, I am the Political Vice President of the Student Welfare Council in Gjovik, Aalesund and Trondheim. I have studied for a total of 5 years (the last two in Trondheim). However, it took me 3 years to figure out that I had to get involved in order to make the most out of student life. I spent two years studying in the US. At one point, I remember going to the same restaurant for 45 days straight because it did not look awkward to eat there by myself. I did not want to go to places where they would ask me if I was waiting for someone. I was ashamed that I did not have anyone to have lunch or dinner with me. That was when I realized that I needed to involve myself in

you want, you can also be a trip leader. If you want to volunteer, NTNUI has a ton of options. It is the largest sports team in Norway with almost 13000 members. If you are a student at BI Norwegian Business School campus Trondheim, you can join various outdoor activities through BI Studentsamfunn. In the past, I know they have provided dog sledding, hunting license and hiking trips. If you are an exchange student I recommend that you also check out Erasmus Student Network Trondheim. This semester they are offering trips to Lofoten and Stadt among others. For more information http:// www.trondheim.esn.no/. All students in Trondheim can also visit Studenterhytta. It is located in Bymarka, close to Gråkallen. It is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the week and Saturday and Sunday during the weekend. NTNUI members can take a private bus on Tuesdays and Wednesdays free of charge. Taking bus 10 from Kongensgate to Skistua will also get you to Studenterhytta. A meal prepared by Chef David comes heavily recommended, so you might want to bring your wallet. With board games, sauna, and the great outdoors at your feet, a trip to Studenterhytta cannot go wrong. You can also volunteer at Studenterhytta, for more information check out https://studenterhytta.org/. It is possible to sleepover during the weekends as well as in the exam period. However, you will need a sleeping bag. Maybe you want to start small, if you do Trondheim Studentbålpirkelaug (Trondheim Student bonfire poke guild) is a newly formed group whose only goal is to hike close to Trondheim and build bonfires. A few popular hiking areas in Trondheim are Estenstadmarka, Bymarka, Elster Park, Gråkallen, Lade trail. If you have a bicycle, it is popular to bike around Jonsvatnet. Volunteering is what makes Trondheim go round. I hope you will help Trondheim move forward. Moreover, that you will be committed to combat loneliness. Because remember, “The scariest moment is always just before you start.” ◼

THE LIST

DOs & DON’Ts OF GOING TO SHOWs by a slightly irked venue promoter at BrukBar / Blæst So early fall is here, and your hazy lazy

days of sunbathing (or hiding indoors, depending on your unlucky geographic whereabouts) are irrevocably numbered. But for the next months, the whole of Trondheim will open its doors to a multitude of cultural events. So you’re finally gearing up to actually try to attend something worthwhile every now and then - like a really good concert! - but where to start? And how not to screw up while doing so? Here’s a couple of handy rules to get you through the night:

— DO —

...embrace the age of information in

which we live! There’s websites, social media, newsletters, The List, posters, flyers and more to keep you ready and updated. Short of yelling in your face, a venue’s reach is limited if you’re not keeping your eyes peeled.

— DON’T —

...let your every weekend be based on

where you usually go. Check out something you haven’t seen or heard before you might be happily surprised, or at least find something new to hate!

— DO —

...trust your nerdy music obsessed friend

about show recommendations every once in a while, if for nothing else.

— DO —

...explore and support local bands that

are good.

THE TWELFTH ISSUE

Words by Andrew Christopher Anfinnsen

— DON’T —

...support local bands that suck. Giving

them false hope is just cruel.

— DON’T —

...PM the venue’s Facebook page asking

exactly how many tickets are left for tonight’s show. If the ticket service still has tickets, you can buy ‘em.

— DO —

...take your instagram snapshots and

tweet your tweets, but if you’re watching the whole show through a mobile lens, you’re doing it wrong. The same goes for Pokémon Go - you absolutely don’t have to catch ‘em all, or really any for that sake.

— DON’T —

...get frustrated if you downed 12 beers before getting there and got denied entrance at the door even though you pre-bought a ticket. You haven’t pre-bought your way out of civility.

— DO —

...trust the venue to announce actual

doors and set times. Shows only start late if everybody’s late.

— DON’T —

...be the guy or girl who has to be hushed

at a quiet show.

42

— DON’T —

...be the guy or girl who hushes someone at a loud show.

— DO —

...by all means step forward to the stage

if the place is only half full. No one’s getting a better show from that half-circle distance of crushing nothingness between a band and its audience.

— DON’T —

...yell requests for 'Freebird' except when

you are absolutely positively convinced of the right comic timing, in which case it can actually be a total zinger.

— DO —

...buy a band’s merch and records at the

actual show. Yes, most musicians are still dirt poor and are in dire need of those kroners.

— DO —

...most certainly have a good time and

dance, shout and move if you’re feeling it, even when (especially when?) in Norway!

— DON'T —

...stay at home. Resist the Netflix!

Kunsthall Trondheim Finally Opening

It is with great pleasure to announce the much anticipated opening of Kunsthall Trondheim on October 20, 2016. We have worked hard towards this and you are now invited to join in the celebration!

It is with great pleasure I invite you to

the much anticipated opening of Kunsthall Trondheim on October 20, 2016. Many people in Trondheim, especially those involved in the art scene, have worked hard towards this day. Now finally, all discussions and planning have resulted in the inauguration of a new institution for contemporary art, in the middle of the city and in a well suited and well known location, on 1000 m2 in the former fire station in Søndre gate. The fire station with its history so closely connected to community service

and its spacious rooms, is an amazing place only waiting for activity and audience. It’s been an intense but interesting process to follow. The team and me are now looking forward to the next phase – to develop this new scene together with the artists, partners and the audience and make it an inspiring and sometimes challenging public space in Trondheim. It’s very encouraging that a new culture institution with plans to stick around for a long time, has been given such a good start – with support from the city and the county as well as from the state. Kunsthall Trondheim wishes to be an addition to the art scene: a non-commercial institution offering more than exhibitions. In addition there will also be discussions, lectures, poetry readings, parties, concerts etc. The exhibitions will be our main focus, but we will also be an active agent by opening up for being a discursive space and taking part in important discussions in society. By having an international focus Kunsthall Trondheim will strengthen the city’s art scene and open up for interesting meetings between the local and the international. We want to add to the possibilities for artists from other countries to come 44

here and work, and we want to engage in international projects, which puts us on the map as an interesting partner for artists both from the local scene and from abroad. We hope that Kunsthall Trondheim will be a place you will want visit, again and again. In order to provide flexibility and the possibility to interact our opening hours will be from 12:00 – 20:00. Our neighbour, the new exiting bar, situated between us and the library, will be open. You are very welcome to the opening party! It will go on for four days and the different days will have different focuses. Don’t forget to bring your kids around for free cake on family day! Helena Holmberg Director

About Kunsthall Trondheim

K

unsthall Trondheim is a new institution for contemporary art that will open October 20th in the old fire station in Trondheim’s city centre. Kunsthall Trondheim will be a dynamic and open entry to contemporary art, housing a variety of events: concerts, performances, lectures and readings and discussions about art and society. Kunsthall Trondheim will also be open when you are off work. Our opening hours will be at least 12:00 to 20:00 daily

except Mondays. A passage is connecting the kunsthalle to the city’s main library, and in between you will find a new bar – which will become your next exciting hang out. Kunsthall Trondheim started as an initiative of the city of Trondheim and the county of Sør-Trøndelag. The plans for establishing an institution for contemporary art in Trondheim was based on discussions within the local art scene and the audience, and stretches back more than 45

ten years. After three years in a temporary space Kunsthall Trondheim will now open as a proper institution for contemporary art, which is the result of the engagement of the people in the city, the city administration and the politicians. Between 2013 and 2015 Kunsthall Trondheim presented artists from Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Taiwan, Romania, Serbia, Hungary, Ukraine, Croatia and USA – and has also toured exhibitions in Sweden and Canada. You may wonder what the word ‘kunsthall’ means? ‘Kunsthalle’ is German, and is often translated into English as “centre for contemporary art”. It’s a non-commercial institution that doesn’t have a collection as the museums do, and its main agenda is not to sell art, contrary to the gallery. In this way this kind of institution is more flexible and holds more experimental potential. ◼ THE TWELFTH ISSUE

unsthall Trondheim’s inaugural exhibition “this is a political (painting)” brings together works by five artists who, in different ways, engage with the implications of the individual’s relation to society. The exhibition lends its title from A K Dolven’s work this is a political painting (2013). The focus of the exhibition lies on the body – it’s place and conditions in society; identity, work and language. “this is a political (painting)” will present film, photography, performance and painting. During the exhibition period there will be a program of talks and screenings.

KAJSA DAHLBERG (SWE) CLAIRE FONTAINE (Fra)

Claire Fontaine works primarily with text, and has developed a practice in which existing forms and materials are crafted into works. An ongoing critical interrogation of political and aesthetic norms of the art world informs her practice, which includes works in neon, video, sculpture and painting. Claire Fontaine is a Paris-based collective artist founded in 2004, and declared herself as a ‘readymade artist’. Claire Fontaine has participated in many international renowned biennales, and recent exhibitions include solo shows at Galerie Neu, Berlin, Air de Paris, Paris and Metro Pictures, New York.

Kajsa Dahlberg’s artistic practice offers an investigation in how the ideologies of community occur in images and language, and how these are constructed and mediated in relation to questions of political representation, history and identity. Recent exhibitions include shows at Galleri Riis, Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp, Belgium (2015) and Alhóndiga Bilbao (2014).

A K DOLVEN (Nor) ALEXANDRA PIRICI (RoU) Alexandra Pirici works across different mediums as visual art, music and film. Pirici has a background in choreography and the work she presents in the exhibition is performative even though the artist prefers to refer to it as ongoing actions rather than performance. Her work for Kunsthall Trondheim is done in collaboration with DansiT, Regional Dance Agency for Professional Dance Artists in South-Trøndelag, Norway. Pirici was born in Romania in 1982, and has exhibited in the Romanian Pavilion at the 55th edition of the Venice Biennale (2014) and Manifesta (2014).

A K Dolven works in a variety of media – painting, installation, film and sound – and at the core of her practice is the theme of interpersonal relations and interactions. Dolven was born in Oslo in 1953, and recent exhibitions include shows at Kunsthall Svalbard, OSL contemporary and IKON Gallery, Birmingham (2015). A K Dolven: A Other Teenager (2016)

How are you feeling? Enthused and thrilled over new found interests, and very optimistic for all the new communities moving forward making Trondheim a lively and rich city. What can we find in your studio? Mostly you’ll find my home. Endless collateral splatter dotting my floors, and a slight chaotic mess in general. Perfect for inspiration, and a constant low-threshold opportunity to hurl paint on paper. Notes to self? Embrace the process, never mind the results. ◼

How are you feeling? Adventurous, inspired and hungry for change. A weird fucked up mixture of being free, fearless, restricted and caged at the same time. I have a lot to be excited about in the future. I’m starting a new chapter this fall: This autumn I become a student at the Art Academy in Trondheim, where I will start a bachelor in visual arts. Starting new on a new study with access to great workshops for working with photography, graphics, wood, metal, video/ audio and sculpture. I thrive my best best THE TWELFTH ISSUE

Untitled (2016)

when i’m surrounded around likeminded people and creative minds, and I’m really excited about meeting new friends and to explore different artistic expressions and upcoming photographic projects. What can we find in your studio/workplace? My workspace is where I am in the moment. I’m in a lot of movement, working whenever wherever on the streets with my camera in my hands. Urban areas and big cities are my favourite playgrounds. You can find me work on a train on my way home on a vacation or while travelling to new unexplored places. Even though i’m constantly moving, I have to say my main studio/workspace is at home in the room i’m renting where I can focus my best and have peace while editing and making series. This fall i’m assigned a studio atelier at the Art Academy in Trondheim that I will be sharing with one of my new classmates, so my main workspace will 48

then be and look a little bit different from the one I have at home. Currently my work desc in my room are surrounded by a lot of extension cables, hard drives, a mix of drawings and scribblings, old gum paper and other relevant work equipments. What brought you to Trondheim? And how has Trondheim been an impact on your process as an artist? The Norwegian school of photography brought me to trondheim. I applied for the school, and got to know that I got enrolled as a student and thought "why not?". I’ve never been a theoretician and practical creative work is what I feel most comfortable with doing. Growing up with a father that was a big photo enthusiast, I got fascinated by how his camera worked out and how to shoot images. My dad teached me some tricks and tips on how to work with a camera and gave me some do’s and dont’s that I still actually follow to this date.


THE LIST

My huge passion for documentary photography seriously bloomed when one of the teachers at the Norwegian school of photography introduced me to photographers and moviemakers like Lars Tunbjork, Nan Goldin, Morten Andersen, Roy Andersson and Anders Petersen. Remember I thought that one of my goals was to reach their level of professionality and find my own style like they had achieved. I still have a lot to learn, but that journey will be long a long process with a lot of surprises and to meet on my way and high mountains to climb. But hey! I must not forget that that’s what I love about the way I work - I get to experience and meet people i’ve never ever talked to if I did not have a camera in my hands. It’s going to be fun! Which Norwegian artist would recognize as an inspiration? Art photographer Morten Andersen. I fell in love with his style and playful way of putting together documentary art photography books.

Where is your next destination? I’m curious and open minded. New places are exciting and my curiosity can sometimes be annoying. Even new discoveries of a hidden gem of a garbage or alley in the area I live in I find exciting. Have to say I want to explore new countries and cities, and i'm wishing to get in to Konstfack art school located in stockholm after having graduated the bachelor degree at KIT in Trondheim. Notes to self? Remember the trip. It comes a new hour, a new day tomorrow and new phaseses. One of my biggest inspirations Jouko Lehtola said this before he passed away: "I know that I’m not going to have kids, that my works are my children. My exhibitions and my images. They will live after I’m gone. In their own silent way they will tell what was relevant in me. How I saw and how I felt...

Upcoming exhibitions? Would love to exhibit my summer project Bitter Sweet Summer Symphony, but first I’m going to exhibit my exam project MANIA in Trondheim within the next few months. I often find myself dreamy and inspired with a lot of different ideas in relation to future exhibitions in Norway and other art galleries worldwide. I could so desperately just hope there had been better space for several exhibitions here in Trondheim. Our possibilities to showcase our work in this town is not something to be very happy about, but really do I appreciate the galleries we already have. I could just hope they were more open and free. It would be a dream come true if we had a big independent gallery in Trondheim that was open for photography exhibitions, or that the e-mpty premises in our city was made to benefit to showcase local and other travelling artists. Maybe I will start an own art gallery myself one day. We'll see. ◼

THE LITERATURE HOUSE OF TRONDHEIM The Reality ...Concept …and Dreams !

When I saw the literature house in Trond-

heim for the first time, I said to myself: this is my place! Many of the questions keep coming to my mind about this house: what’s going on inside? Who are the people who run it? What offers this little house for people in this small town? When a touris visits Trondheim they will see Nidaros Church and will enjoy watching the gentle bridges over Nidalva River, will spend a great time in the small cafes in the old city, and can enjoy a fun time in the bars downtown during the weekend, but... will they visit the House of Literature in Trondheim? And what can be found in this little house that lies in the center of the city? We discussed all these ideas and questions when we met with the person responsible for the management of this special place, Trond Åm, to talk with him about the meaning of Literature House in Trondheim; the concept, activities and ideas that are working in this house. We spoke about THE TWELFTH ISSUE

50


THE LIST

literature and creativity in Trondheim and the role of Literature House in activating literature and culture in the city. Trond Åm began his speech by saying: “The Literature House has been a project for a long time. In 2015, we made an autumn programme, in order to show what a literature house could be in Trondheim. At that time, we had no place where we could arrange events, so we had our meetings at several locations in Trondheim, in cooperation with others. Although not intended from the beginning, this turned out to be a very popular concept for a literature house. “‘Who needs a house, it’s the activity that is important! Use the city!’ several have responded. So we have continued to use the city, and we will continue to do so. Of course, access to free and permanent locations is important. And from October we will open in our own locations in the old fire station from October. But we will continue to cooperate with others on various places in Trondheim and Trøndelag. I think that is an important part of our concept. We are not primarily a literature house, as we see in other cities in Norway. We’ve had events in the Nidaros Cathedral, in the city forest (Bymarka), in the restaurant Alma’s, in the Adresseavisen house, and on several other locations. In August, we had our first conversation in dialogue with Rosenborg, and hopefully, we can arrange something at Lerkenda Stadium some day. That would be great, and an interesting way of applying literature in (perhaps) unexpected contexts. Hence, we try to make literature present all over Trondheim, and to build relevance through presence and by seeking coopera-

tion in many topics, different cooperators, different places in the city. The city challenges literature, literature challenges the city. That is our concept. So I asked Trond what the main role of the Literature House is therefore. “I think the main role of the literature house in Trondheim is to be a centre of activity for literary events, political debates, conversations and concerts for the entire county of Trøndelag. It is important that we develop this activity in cooperation with others. We should be a resource not only for Trondheim, but for Trøndelag. Our goal is to make literature visible and relevant in new and various surroundings.” What does a literature house mean in modern day society? “Generally, we see an increasing interest in live debates, conversations and readings. People do not find it sufficient anymore to watch debates on television. A live conversation is present and unpredictable. It makes you think differently than when you watch it on television. And it represents an alternative to the often predesigned debates and conversations that are communicated to us in the media.” “I think literature houses the city alive, to make people physically present for each other.” I also asked Trond about the comparison between Literature House and contemporaries in other countries. “The development of literature houses in Norway has an interesting story. The first literature house appeared in Berlin in 1986. The literature house in Oslo was established in 2007 and inspired from Berlin, but in 51

Norway, the literature houses early turned into houses for not only literature and readings, but also public debates. In many ways, this dimension of the literature houses are perhaps more important than the literature part, and perhaps, this broad concept is a central aspect of its success. In Trondheim, we are developing a model familiar with the Oslo model, but more activity centred. We do not have our own, big house, but on the other hansd, this means we do not have to use a lot of efforts in earning money for paying our rent. We can focus on what should be our main activity, the events. I think that is very positive. ” The Literature House will open just before the Trondheim Literaturfest in October. So look forward to a lot of interesting events coming! ◼ THE TWELFTH ISSUE

BLUES IN HELL NONEXISTENT, BUT UTTERLY believable scientific research shows that listening to blues music stimulates your brain into producing large amounts of endorphin thus making you actually enjoy your life and often results with forgetting all your troubles. It is believed that people like blues because the music often relies on the tragedy of life for inspiration, so when listening to it people tend to think: “Hey, my life isn’t so bad after all” Although this sounds quite plausible, blues really does make you feel good, therefore Blues in Hell will make you feel great! This September experience the 25th anniversary of Blues in Hell, and despite the fact that the name has some weird implications, you don’t need to go to actual biblical hell to experience it either, just take the train. The festival will begin on Monday 29th August with small concerts all over Stjørdal Sentrum, and with the grand opening at Kimen Kulturhus on the 1st of September. The opening concert will be performed by Hell Blues Kor with a tribute to Bob Dylan, named “Forever Young”. Sports

TRONDHEIM MARATHON 2016 ROUGHLY 2500 YEARS ago, the Greek messenger Pheidippides ran from Marathon to Athens to deliver important military news. After arriving and reciting his message, Pheidippides collapsed and died of exhaustion on the spot. Naturally, people have been trying to run the same distance for fun and profit ever since. This year, thousands of running enthusiasts will flock to Trondheim once more for the ultimate challenge of body and mind. With a route that will take marathon hopefuls past Bakke Bru, along the Nidelva, and through the city centre, the Trondheim Marathon is an event not to be missed. Whether you’re planning to do some running yourself or prefer to encourage the athletes from the comfort 52

For this amazing concert, the Hell Blues Kor will be working together with Øyvind Brandtzæg, a famous Trøndelag actor, musician and singer. On Wednesday and Thursday night at 22.00h, before the big opening day, you can put on your dancing shoes and join DJ Ranja at NSB SCENEN VERTIGO BAR. There will be blues, soul, and rock ’n’ roll from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s so you can shake it til’ the mornin’ comes. The in-between program during this festival is packed to the brim with different performances, one of them being a tribute to the legendary Elvis Presley. Just a warning, you’ll have a serious issue trying to choose where to go and whom to see, but you cannot make the wrong choice in any case! The end of the festival will be marked by a performance by the brilliant Maria Haukaas Mittet. She will be singing the works of Aretha Franklin, star of soul. Just so you know, the distance between Trondheim and Hell is about 24km. Next to nothing, right? You don’t even have to sin to get there. So, see you there! (JS) DATE LOCATION PRICE

of the sidelines, September 3rd is promising to be a celebration of sports and the human spirit alike. For those who find a full marathon a little intimidating, it is also possible to run a half-marathon, a 10KM route, a 5KM route, a 4KM route, or a team marathon. For the youngest superstar athletes, there’s even a children’s mini marathon. The prize ceremony for the fastest runners will be held in the square at 15:30, but of course every participant is a winner regardless of finishing time. If you are still debating whether you are going to give running a try, just remember that no matter your time, you’ll still outrun Olympic athlete Shizo Kanakura, who participated in the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm. Halfway through the marathon he collapsed and promptly went home to Japan, too ashamed to inform the race officials. As a result, Kanakura was listed as a missing person in Sweden for half a century, until he finally returned to finish the marathon he started back in 1912.

KULTURNATT Finding something to do in Trondheim isn’t easy. Not because there’s so little going on, but because there is just way too much to choose from. Do you find yourself waffling about how you are going to spend your weekend? Not to worry: Kulturnatt has got you covered. Whether you are into concerts, seminars, theatre, food and drink, games, or other kinds of performances, Kulturnatt is sure to offer something to your liking. Just like its previous instalments, Kulturnatt will feature a range of events throughout Trondheim, both in familiar venues and in more obscure ones. For the fourth time in a row, museums, shops, and other venues will open their doors from the late afternoon until the early hours of the night. Most events are free to attend, although there may be some individual exceptions. If the previous years are anything to go by, Kulturnatt 2016 will be another unmissable Trondheim event. From interesting lectures by notable pop-scientists to impromptu dance-offs, and from soulful music performances to thought-provoking art installations, there is no better way to explore Trondheim than during Kulturnatt. As summer is coming to a close and daylight becomes more of a precious commodity, Kulturnatt is a great way to bid farewell to the season. As the sun sets and the streetlights shed their light on the vibrant city of Trondheim, you will be able to see the places and venues you know so well in a new light, and you might even make some exciting new discoveries. The range of participants in Kulturnatt has always been broad and eclectic, so there is bound to be something that appeals to you. Children are as welcome as adults, so bring your family or friends, and take the time to get more acquainted with all that Trondheim has to offer. (AvdW)

SEIGMEN NOT SINCE 1997 has the mighty, five-man band from Tønsberg, Seigmen, released a studio album. But in the spring of last year the (very) long anticipated album “Enola” rocketed to the top of the charts in Norway at its debut. Seigmen has long been known for their live performances, dominating the Norwegian music scene throughout the nineties with their bold Alt-Rock sound and theatrical performances. The band has been cited as the source of inspiration for many other Norwegian bands (both big and small). The band broke up briefly at the turn of the century but reunited in 2005 to play more live music gigs and festivals across Norway. Included in these was a staggering performance in 2006 at the Opera House in Oslo celebrating the opening of the iconic structure. Since then Seigmen has continued 53

to make appearances in Norway, albeit sparsely, but starting in September their new tour begins–including a stop here in Trondheim on the 24th. This gives fans the opportunity to catch songs from the new album, and more than likely some old favourites, in the best format for Seigmen’s music–live in concert. The venue for the concert is Olavshallen at the northeast corner of Mid-Town. Tickets are going for 540 kroner for adults and have been on sale since the end of May, so act fast in order to get yours today and catch what is sure to be a spectacular show by these giants of classic rock in Norway.

WEIRD COLLAGE SHOW

BASTARD FESTIVAL FROM ITS PROVOCATIVE name to its stimulating festival programme, the Bastard Festival is out to challenge its audience for the fifteenth time already. Focused on the performing arts, Bastard will be using theatre, drama, film, and other experimental art forms to surprise and prod its audience. True to its name, Bastard is not out to soothe and mollycoddle; it aims to take a long, hard look at our (global) society. Bastard will feature both Norwegian artists and international ones. Some performances will be in Norwegian, but there will be plenty of performances in English as well. Take The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, for example. Have you ever wondered where your iPhone comes from, and who had to make which sacrifices to make sure you could play Pokémon GO and send your friends snaps of your wild night out? If you have ever thought about this, it’s a performance you can’t miss, and if it’s never crossed your mind, you should definitely stop by. Other notable performances include the seven-hour “horror of dance and the dance of horror” NATTEN; The Disco, which is a meditation on torture and interrogation; and Archive, the culmination of a project “in which video cameras are distributed to Palestinians living in high-conflict THE TWELFTH ISSUE

WHEN REDUCED TO its most basic form, collage is one of the most accessible art forms. A pile of magazines and a bit of glue are your ticket to a world of artistry. By assembling different parts into a new whole, you create something that’s more than just the sum of it parts. If that all sounds a bit spacy, take comfort in the knowledge that in this day and age you can even get by with a smartphone and the right app to create a collage of your own pictures. While many of us have dallied in the art of collage, the people behind the International Weird Collage Show have dedicated an entire exposition to it. And while the International Weird Collage Show might be new in Trondheim, it’s certainly not new on the art scene. With previous shows in Barcelona, Berlin, Madrid, Montreal, San José, Lima and New York, IWCS will showcase the work of artists from all over the world: from the USA to France, from Spain to Peru, from Germany to Brazil, and even from Norway itself. The last time you yourself made a collage may very well have been when you were still in school, but a visit to the Weird Collage Show might just inspire you to pick up your scissors and glue and get down and dirty with a pile of magazines. Even if you prefer your art appreciation to be the passive kind, there ought to be something to your liking - from thought-provoking to awe-inspiring collages, from the humorous to the heart-rending, collage is a versatile art

areas”. The only performances that rely on an understanding of Norwegian are I Cloni and Stammen. Much like its artist lineup (with artists hailing from Scandinavia, Portugal, Croatia, and more), Bastard is a truly international affair. Although the programme might seem eclectic at first glance, festival director Per Ananiassen reveals the common thread that runs through the performances: the festival features “artists who have commitments both to art and to society and politics. The performances differ expression-wise, but what may be a common trait is the concerns of the artists to make art both a tool for change and to insist on art as valuable and needed in its own right”. His personal recommendation 54

CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL FOR THE 21ST year in the row, Trondheim Kammermusikkfestival or Chamber Music Festival will take over concert halls, cathedral, Ringve Music Museum and even several living rooms of Trondheim music lovers at the end of September. Did you know that you can host a concert in your living room? It is a little late notice to become a host this year, but you can for sure apply next summer! That is a part of festival’s wish to explore the interaction between music and other media and senses – architecture and everyday life’s settings in this case. Of course, it is also a way to go back to the roots and beginnings of chamber music and its characteristic conversational aspect where one musician with her instrument introduces a melody and after that other instruments respond with a similar motif. That also explains festival’s motto “Listen with care!” as chamber music

requires gentle handling and close attention not only to musical details but also to intimate conversation between musicians and audience. And the attention is well worth it! Kammermusikkfestival brings world famous living composers to town for each of its editions. So far it has hosted such extraordinary composers as Steve Reich, James MacMillan, Sofia Gubaidulina, and Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje. This year festival will present Bent Sørensen, Danish composer and 15 of his works will be offered to the audience. Composer says that nowadays it is a necessity to write music that can carry an echo of the traditions and simultaneously excel traditions”. The advice both the festival artistic director Sigmund Tvete Vik and Bent Sørensen gives is “just listen”, as music needs first to be listened to, and un-

55

derstanding is rather happening while immersing into the music. Also, festival’s artistic director recommends to not miss a concert by extraordinary piano player Gabriela Montero and violinist Henning Kraggerud, where you could sing your favourite melody and hear it back improvised from the stage. Besides, look carefully - festival this year will have its own “flyttebil”, a touring car which are otherwise used for moving belongings when one moves to a new house will instead be a place to hear music!

OPPDAL HORROR SPOOKY, CREEPY, SCARY, freaky, gory and bloody are words. Actually, they are adjectives that I can use to describe this horror festival happening in a little mountain village, away from civilization, and where no one can hear you scream. Or they can, but they won’t do anything about it. Dun, dun, duuunnn. Ramaskrik is a horror film festival created by a couple of guys that like horror movies and wanted to make the ultimate horror festival experience, but had no clue where to have it. Then Oppdal came to mind as a perfect venue! Wonder why. Dun, dun, duuunnn. These guys, Wilhelm and Tørbjorn, are really nice guys. All they ever wanted was to scare people to death for a couple of days a year, and then scare them some more by making them watch horror movies too. The idea was a blast, and people loved it! One of the most exciting news about the festival is the opening movie: Train to Busan. It is one of the most talked about horror movies of the year, and you get to see it first! The movie already has an 8/10 rating on IMDB and apparently smashed all records on the Korean Box office. It’s a classic with a twist, a zombie thriller on a train. The whole zombies on a train, of course, hatched the idea of providing a creepy train ride for the festival goers as well. “On the first day of the festival you can join our festival hosts on a creepy train ride with Ramaskrik and NSB from Trondheim Sentrum to Oppdal (with discounted tickets), to get in the festival spirit”, says Ina Midtun.

MUSEUMSMARATON

FEMINALEN 2016 IN A WORLD where many women are still fighting to be safe, heard, and valued, it’s high time we celebrate those women who are putting themselves out there and use music to share their ideas and experiences. One such celebration is Feminalen, a festival that centers around talented women in the music industry. With concerts, films, and debates, Feminalen aims to showcase and promote role models, encouraging girls who might be interested in the music industry but are not sure if they’ll find their place. When you think about prototypical female music genres, your mind might be drawn to the girl groups for the late nineties, but that means you are missing out on a whole host of bands and experiences. Have you ever heard of Japanese metal idol band BABYMETAL, for example? Still, despite more and more women trying to make sure their voices are heard in the music industry, most of the big festivals have a long way to go when it comes to featuring female artists. Feminalen makes an effort to change this. Their goal is to make sure there is a sense of balance in the music world. After

all, the more different voices that speak up and the more different experiences are shared, the more varied the musical landscape will become. And isn’t that the goal of music? The third instalment of Feminalen promises to be another fantastic one. If this sounds like a cause you want to support (and honestly, why would you not?) you can, of course, attend the festival itself, but Feminalen is looking for volunteers who want to help out during the various concerts and seminars as well. Check out their website for information on how to sign up. Beth Ditto already knew what it was all about back in 2006: It’s part not giving in / And part trusting your friends / You do it all again / But you don’t stop trying! So what are you waiting for? On October 28th and 29th, head on down to Byscenen to support a good cause - and rock out all the while! (AvdW)

WHAT IF I TOLD you, going to museums is not only for catching Pokemon? Surprised? Of course not! Also, Museumsmaraton is exactly what is sounds like, a marathon at museums. Almost everyone likes museums, I think. They make you feel good, they bring back memories from school trips, they have cool stuff you can’t see anywhere else. All of these are solid pro-museum arguments, and there are probably many more. Some people want to be inspired, some seek knowledge, others like to spend family time there, and you can, if you must, catch some decent Pokemon, too. However, there is one more reason to visit museums this August and September, and it involves a game where you go around museums collecting words to win actual prizes. It’s called a marathon because you gotta visit them all and you can really run while doing it too! The idea is that you visit the following museums: Ringve, Rockheim, Sverresborg, Jødisk Museum, Museet in Erkebispegården, NTNU Vitenskapsmuseet, Norsk Rettsmuseum, Trondhjems Sjøfartsmuseum, Sverresborg, Norsk Døvemuseum, Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum and Trondheim kunstmuseum, in any order you want, and at any speed! You can walk, you can run, you can even skip! The idea is, you have to go to all of them at some point, and collect all the keywords that are located there. As you go, you need to fill in a word puzzle. When you’ve done that you can send the puzzle to eva@rettsmuseet.no no later than by the 30th of September, and wait to see if you win any great prizes! Museums are amazing places, but sometimes the prices, or the weather, or just pure laziness overcomes us and we decide “Nah, I’ll go some other time”. Unfortunately, that makes us miss out on some pretty neat exhibitions these museums have to offer, especially if they are just temporary. This marathon is a recurring event and offers plenty of time to visit all the museums, join a fun game in the meantime, and have a chance at winning something awesome while enjoying the exhibitions they offer. Oh, and one more thing, it’s free! (JS) DATE LOCATION TIME PRICE

THE BEATLES 66 IMAGINE ALL THE Beatles on stage again, alive and well, signing for your pleasure at Olavshallen. You think you can only dream about it, and you’d probably sell your left kidney for it if it were true, wouldn’t you? Well, I have the next best thing! A Beatles tribute band is bringing the magic back on the 1st of October! And not just ANY Beatles tribute band. A band made out of the biggest Beatles fans out there (except for you of course), Gaute Ormåsen, Christian Ingebrigtsen, Tor Henning Olsen and the DET BETALES. Det Betales have been playing as a tribute band for over 40 years and have been dubbed the best Beatles tribute band in the world by non-other than Alan Williams, former Beatles manager. And they are really looking forward to playing in Trondheim, says Tor Olsen. “The concert is one in a series of many, and it started in 2013 when they played music only from 1963. The series continues every year, and they always play music from 50 years ago – this year THE TWELFTH ISSUE

they’re playing the 1966 Beatles music. This tribute concert is a MUST for every Beatle-fan (and those who are not).

Well whaddaya know, dreams do come true, at least to some extent. Now to tempt you a bit. Imagine all the people buy tickets to the show. Imagine all the people, at the concert, and you’re left at home alone. Maybe you can’t buy love, but you can definitely buy tickets. See what I did here?

ONCE UPON A TIME, or exactly 10 years ago, three groups of remarkable musician got together and said: “We should move in together.” Their undying love for sharing a common space and creating really good music resulted in opening a great concert hall here in the city of Trondheim. Their talents were known throughout the world (mainly Europe) so people travelled from all over to hear them play. Unfortunately, they could never be heard performing at the same time. Luckily, that’s all over! The Voices, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and the Trondheim Soloists are finally performing together for the first time, on the 10th anniversary of the concert hall Dokkhuset. Trondheim Voices are one highly creative group of vocalists who always dare to go to the unexplored areas of singing. They thrive on their individualities and ability to come together and create something unexpected. Be sure that they will impress. Trondheim Jazz Orchestra had a humble start, but over time they grew and became closely related to Mid-Norwegian Jazz Centre and the Jazz Trøndelag Conservatory of Music. They are the core of Trondheim’s jazz scene. The Trondheim Soloists is a group of classical musicians that are under the leadership of the artistic director Øyvind Gimse. They are currently awaiting a Grammy award for their album Magnificat. These three groups are more than magnificent on their own, just imagine what an experience will it be to have them all together on the same stage. Be a part of this historical event in one of the most renowned jazz and chamber music venues in Europe! (KS) DATE LOCATION TIME PRICE
