Expand the stage

Mette Edvardsen is drastically expanding the classical stage. She is performing We to be at three locations simultaneously: in the book from which she reads aloud, on the empty stage as a projection screen of your imagination, and in the ether as a live radio broadcast. This production is the final instalment in Edvardsen’s trilogy in which language and voice predominate and visual aspects are transferred to the imaginations of the audience. In the first part, Black, she made invisible objects appear simply by naming them. In No Title, she did the inverse, by indicating what was not there.

• Choreographer, dancer and performance artist Mette Edvardsen always surprises us with refined performances. Black (2011) and No Title (2014) were previously performed at the Kaaistudios. During Performatik17, she presented oslo. And she was awarded the prestigious Norwegian Ibsen Prize for We to be.

After a series of solos, Volmir Cordeiro has created his first work for four dancers. He has created a dance that aims to express the physical movement and behaviour of the eye. The interior, the hidden and even the pre-human and cannibalistic is exposed in this intense, almost obsessive inquiry into dance, and into the ineffable itself.

Continuous interaction between the performers and audience is rooted in an implicit understanding. Along with your fellow audience members, you delineate the stage in an ellipsis: this is a dance of touch. Join the performers in this adventure to discover what it means to experience tactility!

How can a mental choreography give you a sense of movement? In Anatomie, Anne Juren creates a movement score for entrails and bodily functions. While you lie on a mat with your eyes closed, she uses her voice to guide you around your body and your mind.
