Dance. Down the rabbit hole. Two choreographers in collaboration with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani create a thought provoking performance - two creations which balance and complete one another.
World premiere 20 SEPTEMBER 2014
12 performances. Runs until 26 October.
Creation by ANTON LACHKY
Choreographer Anton Lachky from Bratislava is one of the founders of the Les SlovaKs Dance Collective in Brussels and has been running his own company since 2012. In A’s Adventures he plays with inspiration from Alice/Anton in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Time and memory move in different directions and the chess game draws the playing board. See what's behind the looking glass from the inside of the mirror.
In collaboration with Norway's Kristin Torp - set designer for both of the evening's creations - Anton paints a visual, fantastic wonderland filled with dance between dark forests and icebergs. It is physical, musical and surreal.
Creation by INA CHRISTEL JOHANNESSEN
Ina Christel Johannessen, who runs the Oslo-based company Zero Visibility Corp, takes the theme further in Wasteland. In an incredibly beautiful abandoned industrial location, dancers interact with both music and set. An award winning documentary about people living and creating beautiful worlds out of rubbish on a dump site in Brazil sets the inspiration for this piece. The Belgian group Stray Dogs perform live from their album Wasteland.
