BEING SALMON, BEING HUMAN: THE PERFORMANCE

Ocean Week May 7
LOCATION: TBA

On May 7, Ocean Week will host the Norwegian version of the storytelling performance "Being Salmon, Being Human", inspired by Martin Lee Mueller's award-winning book by the same name.

Being Salmon, Being Human: The Performance

A free-standing interpretation of the philosophical-poetic work begun by Martin in his book.

For the performance, Martin joins forces with Norwegian-British storyteller Georgiana Keable, renowned Sami joiker and composer Torgeir Vassvik, and the Norwegian folklorist and storyteller Tiril Bryn.

Together, they encounter oral traditions of Sápmi as well as North America, and find that traditional storytelling shares a common ancestry and foundation with contemporary ecophilosophy - namely the wonder about the more-than-human world of calving glaciers, the night sky, ancient forests, sentient beings of the sea, and the age-old-question of who we are in relation to the land, the air, and the oceans.

Being Salmon, Being Human - Encountering the Wild in Us and Us in the Wild

Martin Lee Mueller
Martin Lee Muller is a Speaker at OCEAN WEEK 2019 at the parallel session: "Other Voices, Other Stories" May 6 at Radisson Blu Royal Graden.

Being Salmon, Being Human examines Western culture’s tragic alienation from nature by focusing on the relationship between people and salmon—weaving together key narratives about the Norwegian salmon industry as well as wild salmon in indigenous cultures of the Pacific Northwest.

OCEAN ROBOTICS DEMO

Ocean Week May 7
Trondheim Pier from 17:00h /// Participants to the conference will have VIP access to the exhibition area

Ocean Week Robotics Demo at Trondheim's Pier this year will bring together the latests technology on underwater drones for everyone to experience first hand the technological advances achieved up to date. The first steps towards a fully sized operational autonomous ship is the technology development on smaller autonomous platforms such as unmanned underwater drones and ROVs. 

CONFIRMED PARTICIPANTS:

Maritime Robotics A leading provider of innovative unmanned solutions for maritime operations in harsh environments. With technology developed in close collaboration with both civilian, governmental and military partners, Maritime Robotics focuses on delivering high-quality system solutions and products that are cost-efficient, reduce HSE risk exposure and are highly deployable, in any conditions.

Blueye Pioneer is developed to balance optimal user experience with professional performance, and will be a disruptor in the global underwater inspection market. The hydrodynamic and well balanced design makes the drone exceptionally easy to maneuver. The drone is controlled via a standard game pad controller and with a standard tablet / iPad / smartphone as screen.

Kongsberg Seatex AS will participate with a series of AUV / Marine robots & autonomous vehicles.

ReVolt is 60 metres long and is fully battery powered and autonomous – it requires no crew. At the Robotic Demo students will show a 1:20 model (3m) of ReVolt; Revolt is a new shipping concept for the short-sea segment that offers a possible solution to the growing need for transport capacity.

Water Linked Underwater accoustics made accessible.

Eelume Eelume is a disruptive technology for subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR). Eelume vehicles are basically self-propelled robotic arms whose slender and flexible body can transit over long distances and carry out IMR in confined spaces not accessible by conventional underwater vehicles.

NTNU LAUV - Fridtjof & Harald LAUV Fridtjof is the vehicle of choice for bathimetric mapping and bottom imaging. When it comes to characterization of the physical and biological properties of the water column, LAUV Harald is the vehicle of choice.
