Undersang is a work by Harald Beharie in collaboration with Karoline Bakken Lund, Veronica Bruce and Christian Beharie, which takes shape as a performance ritual in the forest. Undersang is a tapestry of opulent configurations soaked in a shimmer of queer ecologies and extravagant gestures. Here mythologies, national romantic ideals and science fiction converge, revealing a world of ancient powers.

Weaving Afro and Asian-Nordic diasporic narratives, Undersang plays with the notion of dissonance as an ambiguous feeling of empowerment, sparking questions about cultural fictions and what it means to belong. As a ground for refusal, reclamation of time and looking beyond the idea of ownership, the work seeks fertile ground for healing, for lament and joyous celebration.
