Nagelhus Schia Productions is collaborating with renowned Norwegian choreographer Ingun Bjørnsgaard on a new work titled SONNET IDIOT that will premiere at The Norwegian Opera & Ballet in Oslo (NO) on 14 May 2024.

With Shakespeare's sonnets as a point of departure, Bjørnsgaard explores both sensual and platonic love in her new work in collaboration with seven dancers from Nagelhus Schia Productions. Bjørnsgaard is known for her exceptional take on the fleeting fragility of modern identity and its social foundations gradually venturing into the complex relationship between the feminine and masculinity, in both men and women. Through the visual language of movement, Shakespeare's linguistic sensuality is abstracted in a world of unfulfilled needs, misunderstandings, and an attraction toward the inaccessible. The music, composed and performed by Christian Wallumrød, plays a central role in creating a dialogue between dance and sound.

Wearing skin-tight playsuits, Aloun Marchal and Henrique Furtado weigh each other up, stare at each other, stand firm in the middle of the stage, and let out a cry from deep inside: the challenge is laid down. Face to face, close to each other, conniving and provoking at the same time, they are getting ready. They explore a wide range of sounds and movements with clashing styles, from sports fighting to teasing childish games, from rumbling noises to lullabies, from straightforward breathing to bestial yelling.

Progressive mechanisms drive the performers even further into their exercise, moving disjointedly and opening their throats more and more. The pas de deux glides from controlled violence to sensuality, which are both disturbingly based on listening mimicry and exchange of movements. Progressively and cruelly, get tangled, mixed up, and rival each other. Henrique Furtado and Aloun Marchal are ready, at last...

Performance date: 27 April 2024, Festival Encontr'Arte em Terra de Encantar'24, Casa do Povo in Cabeção, Concelho de Mora (PT). More info here.

CHEST is the third part of Nyberg's exploration of humanity's assholery, previously developed in SWEET (MDT 2022) and THE DAWN CHORUS (Norrdans 2022).
