Hope and Heavy Metal (work title) is a new project by Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen, who graduated from the SNDO (School for new dance developments) in 2017. In the work she researches pre-consisting ideas and images of the female body. She researches how this body deals with loneliness, rage and sensuality. In collaboration with musician and visual artist Julie Aaltonen, Sigrid creates a solo that takes form as a visual music album. As a spectator you will be able to follow a female performer from up close, a chaotic personality that slowly reveals its multi-layered history.
In Dansateliers Sigrid takes the first steps of her research. During the studiopresentations she shares the work-in-progress. After the presentations you can enter into a dialogue and share thoughts.
This creation is developed as part of the Moving Forward Trajectory, an initiative of Dansmakers Amsterdam and Dansgroep Amsterdam in collaboration with Dansateliers, DansBrabant and De Nieuwe Oost.
Première: October 20th 2018, Dansmakers Podium, Amsterdam
