On Friday 15, and Saturday 16 of June, the makerduo Kim-Jomi Fischer and Marta Alstadsaeter present their soon-to-première work Engel during the studiopresentations in Dansateliers.
Engel will have its premiere on the 27th of June in Harstad, Norway. It is a piece about inner struggle, decision-making and our relation to the metaphysical. Two performers, one a circus acrobat and one a dancer, melt together in a physical dialogue through a constant exchange of weight, momentum and direction.
Engel is inspired by the poetry of “Stof dat als een meisje” in which poet/writer Toon Tellegen describes a man who is haunted by an angel. The two performers ask themselves: “Who or what is guiding us through the chaos of nowadays existence?”
“Is it circus or is it dance? With their soft, organic and sculptural play of strength, balance and proportion the duo poses this question. […] Together they expose new layers of meaning by the use of the motoric skills of the other.” Jury BNG prize
