As a prelude to performances, “Sailing City” host a series of labs and open workshops, establishing dialogue between artists, scientists, activists and local citizens. Within an artistic contexts, we take time to be inspired by, and to debate, paradoxes concerning lifestyle, climate, energy, and the ocean.

The ship Hawila, her tall masts, and the surrounding waters, becomes the stage for a progression of floating dance- and art installations, aerial dance, light art and live music.
The dock areas come alive with the laboratories of “Sailing City”.

Traveling by wind between Northern shores, “Sailing City” carries new ideas.
