All about Engel

Last week we witnessed the enchanting première of Engel a new piece by Marta Alstadsæter and Kim-Jomi Fischer. In the piece, the duo ingeniously combines their different backgrounds in contemporary dance and circus. Engel is Marta & Kim’s first evening-filling production, that was created in co-production with Dansateliers, Podium Bloos and Festspillene i Nord-Norge, Norway. Keep on reading and find some of the laudatory and beautiful words that appeared in the press below.

“The symbiotic form that was founded by the acrobatic dancer and the dancing acrobat makes it impossible to look away from the fusion of the two bodies.” ***** Wendy Lubberding, 2018,

“”There are some art experiences you know you will never forget. The dance performance Engel is such an experience […] A very poetic and incredibly well-composed hour of body restraint and muscle strength at top level.” Anki Gerhardsen, 2018, Nordlys ******
