For the seventh year in a row Oslo World repeats the success of tours to sacred spaces, in collaboration with KULT (Center for art, culture and the church). When The Sound of the Sacred explore how sacred texts are expressed through soundscapes and melodic recitation we are working with thousands of years old religious forms of expression.
The Sound of the Sacred brings the audience to the Holy Olga church for a short service where Russian Orthodox hymns are sung, followed by a tour of the church with art historian PhD. Caroline Serck-Hanssen. The next stop will be the biggest mosque in Norden – Baitun Nasr, where the audience will experience recitation of sacred texts. The trip ends at the the Sikh Temple in Alnabru, where there will be a reading from the holy book Adi Granth, songs, historical instruments and an introduction to the “art of wrapping a turban”.
Guide during the bus trip – Knut Erik Tveit. cultural advisor for Diocese of Oslo and project manager for The sound of the Sacred
