This video is a single channel trailer for a three channel video piece based on material collected at Pyramiden, a mining community established by the Soviet Union in the Svalbard territory in the high Arctic. At its peak Pyramiden was home to more than 1000 miners and their families. It was evacuated in two days in 1998 leaving a ghost town. The three channel version of “Katyusha” will refer to three characters. The “Guide” takes the form of a grey sea bird, the Northern Fulmar. As the piece progresses we discover clues to the identity of two “Lovers”, a ballet dancer and a basketball player. The elaborately painted floor of the basketball court in Pyramiden is a central motif, as is the abandoned ballet studio in the northern most corner of the town – once the most northerly ballet studio on earth.
