The Choreographers – Is it possible to fill a room with a movement?
28 October 2022, 29 October 2022, 30 October 2022
Top floor, Färgfabriken
The performance runs for approximately 60 minutes.
A newly produced dance performance with live music at Färgfabriken!
The performance is about two choreographers/dancers who meet regularly in a dance studio near Dresden.
They have decided to try to create a completely new system of movements based on their own bodies, where the room they are in both becomes a safe place and at the same time has a limiting effect on the whole.
Is it possible to fill a room with a movement? When does a movement end? When is the movement perceived as monotonous, versus over-energetic?
Gradually, a delicate emotional game arises between the dancers. Who gets the most attention? Does she see me? A crush, a limbo, a sense of sisterhood and twinship is created between the dancers. An expression may as well be a non-expression. A drama totally undramatic.
Note: There will be dialogue in Swedish.
Regular price: 150 kr
Reduced price (student/senior): 100 kr
