30.11 - 20.12
Residency by Linn Ragnarsson and her team to start the work on their new dance performance “Worlds end inside”.
This residency is organized with support from Kultur i Väst.
Worlds end inside is a choreography that travels between the surrealism of everyday life and emotions, through the practical into the imaginative. Bodies as persons, bodies as material, bodies that meets, bodies as worlds. A continuous flow that concentrates in situations and culminates in images. Sincere dance that embraces contrasts and creates openings in the the present moment.
Worlds end inside investigates the prerequisites that unfolds a certain care taking of words, situations, each other and of movement. The thematics of the project also holds ideas about [letting go], as in accepting transformation and as a necessity to meet another and one self.
”Let’s face it. We’re undone by each other. And if we’re not, we’re missing something.”
