    The Arctic Arts Festival proudly presents a dance performance with the events of the Second World War in the North as the framework. This is particularly relevant to emphasize today, in light of the lack of recognition of the northern Norwegian contribution to the resistance. GLEMT (FORGOTTEN) by Simone Grøtte is a dance performance conveying the war history in a completely new way.
