Upside DownComing up: A durational installation on stage; the audience becomes part of a moving, transforming, dancing experience.
Friday December 14th
10:00 – 11:30
Bíó Paradís, Hverfisgata 54
In Upside down, choreographer Bára Sigfúsdóttir and visual artist Tinna Ottesen are combining their specific researches about movement and space. Their interest is to create:
– a man-made space, a durational installation on stage, that plays with the relationship between the organic and the disparate
– a moving, transforming, dancing experience for an audience to exist within
– a dialogue between physical bodies and surrounding materials
– a space in movement as much as movement in space.
Going from time to timeless and back to time, composer Eivind Lønning supports this experience in transition by creating the soundscape.
Bára interests herself in the positioning of the human body and being in society. Through various approximations she strives to communicate and reflect upon some temporary and eternal questions: themes of nature, social position and hierarchy are recurrent in her work.
Bára has a unique way of researching and composing movement material which is articulated and eloquent, musical and one of a kind. Her focal point for the past years has been to work with isolations of smaller segments of her body, applying different rhythms and constructing a layered material which constantly transforms – moving between clarity and ambiguity. Bára´s dance is visual and imaginative.
