FLÖKT a flickering flow

A new production by Bára Sigfúsdóttir & Tinna Ottesen

FLÖKT – a flickering flow offers an exploration of our bodily connection with the world surrounding us. It suggests that nature is not something that solely exists outside of us but also something we can sense and experience through our bodies. The audience is invited into a white silk dome, an environment which is in a constant state of transition and allows you to feel the close proximity of things, bodies, the space, the sound, the lights and the massive presence of this environment which literally surrounds you. Together we undertake a journey inside an interconnected poetic miniature of our world.
In FLÖKT, choreographer and dancer Bára Sigfúsdóttir joins forces with visual artist Tinna Ottesen, composer Eivind Lønning, light designer Jan Fedinger, and dancers Aëla Labbé Meri Pajuunpa who join Bára on stage.
In THE LOVER (2015), Bára looked at the connection between humans and nature. She developed a movement language that kept transforming throughout the performance, questioning what is human, what is animal, what is nature, what is man-made and what is organic. THE LOVER triggered the spectators to contemplate and reflect upon their own relationship with nature. FLÖKT is in many ways a continuation on this path, inspired by an ongoing dialogue with Icelandic environmental philosophers Gudbjorg R. Johannesdottir & Sigridur Thorgeirsdottir. Fascinated by the moment the body gives in to its surroundings, FLÖKT is a partly visible and partly invisible dance between bodies, materials, sound, space and the atmosphere. It explores the conditions of the imminent in a constantly changing world. Can we experience a dance performance in the same way we experience a waterfall?
