Valērija Kuzmiča embodies questions like how snowflakes are formed, how a day begins. How do we know who we are? And if we have ever taken the first step toward forgiveness. Out of an organic movement, Etay Axelroad lets a human emerge, in its undressed vulnerability. With power and will as companions. Erik Johansson lets the associations flow, the floor vibrates when he creates experiences from the air. Angelina Allen de Melo shows how much our hands and feet can tell us. But we hide our feet in shoes and lose touch with the earth. And our hands are constantly busy. But what if our bodies are a map of our inner landscapes?
Our dancers are longing to perform for audiences, but the auditorium is closed, and the stage lighting is switched off. That’s why GöteborgsOperans Danskompani decided to offer dance performances involving the smallest possible number of people: one dancer and one audience member, alone in a room and a safe distance apart.
In early spring, 31 people were given a unique encounter on the Göteborg Opera Small Stage. Each of the dancers prepared a choreography or performance that was performed just once, for one person. Neither the dancer nor the audience member knew in advance who they would meet.
These 31 encounters were filmed, and you can see the result in short videos.
This is the seventh and last episode.
