Future 1.–4. September 2016

Future forms the first part of Ina Christel Johannessen’s exploration of a wide-ranging and multifaceted focal point: the future. 

That which is not yet here, but which is coming. What creates the future? Everything that has been – and everything that is – creates the future. We create the future. NOW.  Every single choice made by each and every one of us plays its part in creating the future. It is our responsibility. Now, all the time… you and I. We.

In Future, Ina puts the child at the centre of her exploration. What will we pass on to the children, the bearers of the future? For this production, Ina has worked closely with the eight dancers who form the production ensemble, along with a group of children. Through Ina Christel Johannessen’s distinctive methodical approach to the material, the production will gradually take shape as she takes the dancers deeper and deeper into the heart of the subject.  The Belgian composer Bram Bosteels of Kaboom Karavan has worked closely with Ina Christel Johannessen to develop the production’s original music. Bram’s personal style comes from a mixture of self-made instruments, antique stringed instruments and electronic effects, which work together to create a bizarre universe with a carnival feel.

nydelig å se samspillet mellom barna og de voksne danserne

Nydelige møter mellom barn og voksne i en kompleks struktur av tid og rom.
