MY OWN PRIVATE FURRY (1999)

Siri and Snelle together with Tony Thatcher and Arve Henriksen (trumpet) explores Celtic May Day celebrations  disguised as drag kings.

“Hall and Jøntvedt appears as the perfect partners in crime with clogs, white suits and back combed hair.”
Aftenposten 19.11.99

“Convincing, impressive stepdancing in white clogs. In unison and in dialogue, they stepdanced their way out of the clichés, and into a dance full of variations. I have never seen clogs with so many opportunities and nuances. A sight for sore eyes, and a lovely sound for the ears. (…)

Lowbrow, not lowbrow. They definitely don’t care “right” and “wrong”. Male, female, androgyny, they don’t give a damn.”
