But Then, We´ll Disappear (I´d Prefer Not To),
16.–19. September

Spilles: Thu 16. Sep Fri 17. Sep Sat 18. Sep Sun 19. Sep

A Choreographed concert.

Canadian Frédérick Gravel is known for turning the structures of choreography upside down and often includes elements of rock and performance art in his expression. His background is from the vibrant arts community in Montreal, and he has established himself as one of the foremost exponents of the new, Canadian dance art.

For Gravel, the performance is only first created in the meeting between people. The stage becomes an arena for an artistic and social experiment where characters are built and erased in a battle against their own patterns. This resistance is at once both tragic and beautiful.

‘I view a choreographic idea as a melody, and my works can be compared to making a concert. I make music by the aid of dance. One might say that I compose lines that the dancers perform with their own voice, in their own key,’ he says.

Behind the title But Then, We’ll Disappear (I’d Prefer Not To) lies a hidden a desire to emphasize the individual’s role in a world full of contradictions where guilt and celebration are two sides of the same coin, in hopes that everything has a plan.
