You look like you is an intimate and playful dance performance shaped by risk, self-exposure and experimentation.
AUDITION FOR DANCERS
The performance investigates the potential in interpersonal communication: In this case between the performance’s audience and its performer. The audience is invited to instruct and comment on the dancer’s actions, and the latter continuously interprets this feedback.
You look like you focuses on the will to communicate through art and how one as performer and member of the audience handles the possibilities, issues and insecurities that may arise when confronted with one’s own decisions. Anything might happen during this performance, but at the same time one is forced to maintain a conscious awareness of one’s own actions. This self-awareness can be compared to the grave question one might ask oneself in old age: “If I could have done this again, would I do it differently?”
*The performance is presented at this year’s Bastard festival in collaboration with DansiT – Dansekunst i Trondheim og Midt-Norge. This spring, we also collaborated on the presentation of Yaniv Cohen’s performance “How hard can it be?”, as part of our joint celebration of The International Dance Day(s).
