Dates & times

Due to illness the performance June 3rd will be executed as a solo performance of Loan Ha, not a duet as originally planned. Duration will be 25 minutes.

Your shadow is a tribute to the shadow; an inescapable companion, a witness, a being that completes the story and gives reality a different perspective. The production is about the experience of having multiple voices, of being followed and watched over by a layer of ourselves, with a changing shape and the ability to become invisible. Shadows can hide and distort, but also provide shelter and support. Your shadow is you, but at the same time is not you. The production has been developed in a close partnership between the performers Loan Ha and Kristina Gjems. With shadow as the theme and metaphor for the work, they dedicate their attention and the dance to the spaces in between, to union, the individual and the companion.
