Work in Progress – Object Manipulation

Note: This is a Work in Progress showing, which means that this is not a finished performance. By contrast, this presentation is a display of ideas and material that may form the basis for a finished performance.

Rhythm performers Villads, Ilmo, Livya & electronic composer Lasse Munk will work together throughout October on the basis of the theme “Action – Reaction”.

As dancers, they will use juggling patterns to see how they can juggle with their own bodies & space. As rhythm people, they will play with the rhythm & timing of juggling.

Focusing on timing, time and space. They will explore how to manipulate objects without being in direct contact with them, through the power of their bodies with breath, tramp & clap – from step, body percussion, beatbox as well as electrical appliances.

Free admission.

Sorry Not Sorry

Premiere for new dance performance

Take up space. Make noise! Lift yourself up and strech yourself out!

SORRY NOT SORRY is an explosive, fast-paced dance performance that challenges our fear of taking up space in the world – with our bodies and minds.

How can we take the space we need so we can lift ourselves and each other up?

Make yourself ready for fast-moving dancers and an inflatable scenography in screaming colours that requires space. An uplifting invitation to dare taking up space, expanding and making noise – in a voluminous soundscape of surf punk, rock and ferocity.

Or – In the words of Danish comedian Sofie Hagen: “Take up space in a world that wants to shrink you”.

Concert with Muovipussi (FI)

A punkish electro-acoustic band consisting of three Finns: Niklas Blomberg, Heidi Finnberg and Milla Lahtinen. We write our own songs. There’s a bass and a lot of weird digital instruments.

Muovipussi is a performative electro-punk band from Finland founded in 2018. After playing several concerts they decided to extend their repertoire also to theater stages. In their mixture of music, theater and circus, they discover new ways to combine these worlds.

Inspired by grandmas and electronic music, these three performers present their multidisciplinary skills in a performance that will make your soul cringe, in the best possible way!

The concert begins after Exploring Nordic Contemporary Circus and is presented in collaboration with Feral Festival

Andrea Albernaz_ Isla Collective with: CASA

CASA Project is an artistic collaboration between the actress Andrea Albernaz and the director and dramaturg Georges Perla. This project arises after the need of the actress to be able to tell her history, the history of the houses and places where she has lived, using her memories, sometimes confusing, often messy, to create the narrative and dramaturgy of the story. The current moment in which we have lived is not neglected either: a global pandemic, the isolation, confinement and being an inhabitant of our most intimate solitudes.

Idea: Andrea Albernaz & Georges Perla
Director and playwright: Georges Perla
Co-instructor: Juliana Appel
Pr & Communication: Elena Stanciu

At the age of 12, David began to practice the art of juggling. David has traveled the world with his juggling number and won several international awards. In 2016, David was in connection with a show in Rome, and was invited to the Vatican to perform for the Pope.

Copenhagen International Arts Collective with: Midsummer Solos:
Misty Heather / Cherry Blossoms / Wilting Flowers

Midsummer Solos is a multidisciplinary project, where the ephemerality of choreography inspire a selection of physical artworks created by the participating dancers. The bodily and the material in conversation with each other, rooted in Nordic folk and neoclassical steps.

In this sharing, audiences will get a taster of the project, when Copenhagen International Arts Collective test the three short solos in front of an audience for the first time. Each solo is inspired by imagery taken from landscapes and allows the soft and feminine to take up space as a contrast to the toughness of the world.  

Copenhagen International Arts Collective gathers international and local artists in a producing community in Copenhagen.

Work by Rachel Kealy

Feelings are, by definition, hard to put into words. Anxiety lives among us, but can we tell who is panicking? Are we panicking? Shifting between fear and reaching out towards the light, Rachael takes you on a journey in an attempt to capture the kind of panic we can sometimes feel, but rarely see. 

Rachael is an Irish aerial artist training with The Circus Playground at Dynamo, she is a hula hooper and marine biologist living living in Denmark. She spends many hours researching the complexity of everyone’s favourite animal, the sponge. She is sensitive to changes in people around her and wishes we would express our panic more often, instead of in silence.

OPEN STAGE is presented in collaboration with The Circus Playground.

Free admission – book your ticket in advance.

Concert med Ghost Coast Choir (DK)

“It is ovewhealming, successful. And from the start, magnetic, almost cinematic. Deeply fascinating and incredibly beautiful ”- GAFFA

The Ghost Coast Choir mixes the ethereal with the down-to-earth to create a new expression with choral music, which they call post-classical indie choir.

The two composers, Gustav Rasmussen and Thorben Seierø, are centers stage with effect pedals, tape recorders, microphones and musical instruments, and around in the concert room the singers are placed to surround the audience in the sound of the voices. Video projections driven by melancholy sadness create an evocative visual experience where themes such as grief, death, loneliness and decay are poetically intertwined with themes such as beginning, life and joy.
