Spirit

Noetic by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui
Metamorphosis by Saburo Teshigawara

Noetic

Meet two masters from different generations. Noetic, a creation by Belgian Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui can contain everything from deep spirituality to comedy. The thing that interests him most is what happens between the dancers, rather than the movements of the individual dancer. Larbi’s roots are in the cultures of both Morocco and Central Europe. His artistic identity has been influenced by many years of involvement in the Belgian dance company Les Ballets C de la B, whose work belongs among the most exciting things to have happened within dance in recent decades.

Metamorphosis

Saburo Teshigawara is one of the world’s most prominent choreographers. He has been awarded the foremost honours both in his own country and internationally. Faithful to the culture of his homeland, Teshigawara is minimalist – everything he creates is aesthetic, beautiful and pared down. It is also spiritual and subtle. The music accompanying Metamorphosis consists both of newly composed electronic music, and choral work with a capella singing.

Interfacial Scale

Dance work by Hiroaki Umeda

The intense dance installation of Tokyo-based artist Hiroaki Umeda explores how you can break the choreographic border of dance – and the interfacial between dance and the unknown on the other side of the border. Inspired by tacit knowledge and swarm behavior, he choreographs each dancer individually as well as a collective.

As well as being a choreographer and dancer, Umeda is also a photographer and video artist. In 2000, he established his own company, S20. For the first time he’s working with an ensemble of 11 dancers from GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. For Interfacial Scale Umeda has created choreography, set, costume, light and sound design. For the comissioned music, he is collaborating with Yoshihiro Hanno aka RadiQ – pioneer of minimal techno and Asian art film soundtracks – who has written a score for The Göteborg Opera Orchestra.
