In a continuous quest to find new relationships the performers use voice and movement to set the objects in motion, making theatrical topographies, revealing what is usually in the background or hidden. Funded by Arts Council England and Nordic Culture Fund. For full credits and additional information - please read here.

- Brand new performance premieres in October

On a very ordinary day, four men move through the city on foot. They quickly follow the flow without questioning the stop dance dictated by the traffic signal, the strictrule of the roadsigns or society's other unwritten rules for good behavior. Until one of them suddenly decides to rebel...

There is plenty of raw physicality, everyday stunts and DON GNU attitudes when the ground under the four performers literally disappears and the rules, routines and common norms we all take for granted suddenly lose their meaning. WALK-MAN sheds new light on everyday boring routines and the longing for freedom and a playful approach to the world. You will never cross the street the same way again!

WALK-MAN premieres 5 Oct 2019 at Bora Bora, Aarhus (DK) - also showing 5, 7, 8 and 9 Oct 2019.

- NOTES ON FRAILTY goes on national tour and a new work is in the making

photo. Tale Hendnes

NOTES ON FRAILTY goes on a national tour in Norway in September, October and November. The work received a great review in Il Giornale di Vicenza after the performance at Operaestate – Festival Veneto, in Bassano del Grappa, Italy:

"The choreography investigates the fragility of the feminine with suspense, in a way that captures magical light, authentic suffering and deep compassion, with an imaginative sense of style (…) The four dancers are all gifted with huge expressive and performative capacities, in the great tradition of the dance-theatre. Their gestures are at all times refined as are their facial expression in a way that uncompromisingly captures the attention of the spectator and pulls us into the intimate “chiaroscuro” of the Nordic landscape that characterizes the choreography." - Lara Campigato, Il Giornale di Vicenza

UNCOORDINATED DOG will premiere at Dansens Hus Oslo (NO) on 10 Oct 2019. The week after, in collaboration with CODA – Oslo International Dance Festival we invite professionals into the studio for extracts from this new work on 18 Oct 2019. More information on upcoming tours and activity here.
