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.
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.
