ABOUT THH (ENGLISH VERSION)
 

Hungry Hearts Performance Band - What is it?

It is an art project. We make synth electro pop songs, music videoes, choreography and.. In our performances the visual aspect is just as important as the music. Hungry Hearts acts on the Norwegian and International contemporary art scene, queer scene, music venues and at film festivals.

So what do you do?

We perform with our pop songs and particular choreography. We use our female bodies with it's history, shapes and curves.
 

The lyrics are about?
Master minds, stalkers, lesbians, love, ladyboys, passion, jealousy, baby-dykes, tomboys, Laika the cosmonaut dog, nerds, emo girls, outsiders, insiders, dreamers, strangers and all the weird thoughts and emotions we all have to handle.

In all song lyrics and stage shows there is a message.

 

What kind of message?
It is about identity, being a person, a woman, a human being, being part of something bigger, taking responsibility, focusing on dreams and trying to make a small difference - at least for some people.. 
  


And it's about the things we do for love..always.

The artistic objective is to communicate thoughts, feelings, experiences and different perspectives through a surreal and absurd audio visual universe.

 

So where have you performed?
We have participated in more then 50 international film festivals with short films and made performance concerts in Japan, Germany, France, Israel, England and Greece.


In 2016 Hungry Hearts feat. Lisa Dillan was part of the ESC Norwegian final with their song Laika. 

We have performed at The Norwegian Opera & Ballet and 
participated at Høstutstillingen, Landmark Art Club (Bergen Kunsthall), Museum of Contemporary Art, House of Foundation and Kunstplass 5.
