Do you want to see each meeting in full?
Zachary Enquist embodies our longing for touch. Benjamin Behrends writes the audience’s emotion with his body. Micol Mantini’s Italian movement and poetry become an emotional experience. Anna Ozerskaia brings out a smile, despite of us all being stuck in unpredictability.
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 has 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 late winter and early spring, 31 people were given a unique encounter on the Göteborg Opera Small Stage. Each of the dancers has prepared a choreography or performance that is performed just once, for one person. Neither the dancer nor the audience member knows in advance who they will meet.
These 31 encounters are filmed, and you can see the result in short videos. This is the first episode.
