What is it about twins that fascinates and amazes on a deeply human or even an eerily superhuman level?

In Songs of entanglement the performers and sisters Julie Solberg and Cecilie Solberg are staging their twin relation, playing with expectations and the imaginative force of the audience. As twins they are often viewed as a sort of ready-made, a perception Solberg and Solberg put into play. They dig into personal voices, songs, rituals and the potency of twins as symbol and myth to capture the existential themes at work in the twin relationship and the imagination of the audience.

“In quantum physics, entangled particles remain connected so that actions performed on one affect the other, even when separated by great distances. The phenomenon so riled Albert Einstein he called it “spooky action at a distance.” Karl Tate, How quantum sience entanglement works.

“When looking for dramatic themes like love, death, appearances, deception, secrets and betrayal, what better place to search than your own family?” Raymond Frenken, On the threshold of fiction.
