VIDEO: I Hear Someone-2
HVORNÅR: Kl. 19.00 den 4. og 5. september
HVOR: Onkel Dannys Plads (måske kan du se dem forvirret rundt om i Kødbyen allerede fra kl. 18.00)
“An immersion in a gloomy place, where the unknown is lurking around the corner in recognizable disguise.
Is it you or me in this unreal reality, or me and you in a conscious dream?

Inspired by David Lynch’s dark, surreal and quirky work, with a twist of understated naivety.”

Just a stupid little piece/Girl on fire (DK)

HVORNÅR: Kl. 19.00 – 21.00 den 4. og 5. september
OPMØDE: Onkel Dannys Plads/ Kødbyen

”Just a stupid little piece/Girl on fire” is just that. A stupid little piece and a girl on fire. Hilde plays the role of herself, and at the same time; the role of fire, the flame. The confusion is accompanied by Alicia Keys, who is also not sure. A girl? A flame? Fire? She is moving through space, flowing, catching and sharing sparks. The moment where she suddenly remembers that she is a girl, it hurts a bit to be on fire.

The piece is mainly for fun. It is also for the joy of movement and for the choreographers addiction to surprising and sudden electric shocks and changes.

Underneath, there are questions of why we always wish to be or become something.

Looks like a girl, but she`s a flame.

I dwell upon people (SE)

HVORNÅR: Kl. 19.00 – 21.00 den 4. og 5. september
OPMØDE: Onkel Dannys Plads/ Kødbyen

”I dwell upon people” is based on the way metaphors are made. They represent situations that one may be familiar with. “I dwell upon people” shows how it is to work as a young artist in the field of performing arts. Deals with the topic of subsidy within arts and questioning the art itself. “ LOOK AT IT! IT IS RIGHT INFRONT OF YOUR EYES; IT IS A PIECE OF ART….”

Choreographer: Ellinor Ljungkvist

PEOPLE (NO)


HVORNÅR:
Kl. 19.00 – 21.00 den 4. og 5. september
OPMØDE: Onkel Dannys Plads/ Kødbyen

People have an inlaid feeling that they have the ability to predict the future, or if they see
patterns they have a built in feeling that they’re meaningful,
and a built in feeling that they can control things. (Leonard Mlodinow)

”People” is a confusing, hypnotizing, bizarre and occasionally frantic quartet where the four
dancers persistently explore...patterns.

Where Does the Light Go? (FI)

nordlys værker-4

Valtteris video presentation

HVORNÅR:
Kl. 19.00 – 21.00 den 4. og 5. september
OPMØDE: Onkel Dannys Plads/ Kødbyen

A starkly minimalistic physical exploration of memories and dreams, transformed into one solo and a duet. Memory has no chronology, where Valtteri is trying to analyze childhood emotions and memories that have survived only as fragmentary flashes, no matter how hard he tries to return to them. ”What if one didn’t strive to recreate the truth, but would uninhibitedly exaggerate, paraphrase and plagiarize? Does a performance always present everything as the truth, or reveal a lie to the spectator?

How to be/loved – Perspectives (DK)

HVORNÅR: Kl. 20.00 – 21.00 (med artist talk)
HVOR: Forsøgs stationen – Sønder Blvd. 81, 1720 København V

The piece deals with the complexity of family relations and how contradictory they can be. Wanting to be close, and not. Wanting the other family members to take part of ones life, and not. Maybe the most intriguing contradiction is how difficult it can be to receive love, when this is what we want and need the most. Whenever a situation between the two performers rethink what they were certain of just a minute ago. The movement and text are complementing, and sometimes contradicting, each other creating an intriguing and complex expression.

Dancers: Sofia Karlsson, Jan Vesala

Oudeis (SE)

HVORNÅR: Kl. 19.00 – 21.00 den 4. og 5. september
OPMØDE: Onkel Dannys Plads/ Kødbyen

Oudeis is a choreographic installation that rediscover a new relationship between the moving body and the story of Odysseus. A dance without center where voices can speak from the various body parts as if they were characters from the story. A framework in which the physical movement is dictated by the word and the words dictated by the movement, where the relationship between  the two is re-­‐written.
