Melt it down and bring it to a boil. Temperatures and consistencies, a variety of existences, series of movements and collective patterns passing by. Dragging out gaps, weaving through. Knead – dwell – fail – seek – twist – restart.
The performance takes us into the damp, to the nooks and crannies of everyday life, to the pockets at the office. Through uneven terrain, we materialise different ways of being together, carried by our voice – not yet warmed up, but clear and turbulent.
Bløtkokt (soft boiled) is a choreographic work, performed and created by artists working with and through dance, performance, sound and textile. The audience and performers meet in a landscape cooking between a concert, a dance performance and tufted textile work – made of remnants of yarn from Norwegian spinning mills.
Veronica Molin Bruce works with and between choreography, dance and sculpture. Jennie Victoria Bergsli works with dance and performance. Bergsli and Bruce has previously collaborated together of works like e-Harmoni at Black Box teater. Alice Slyngstad works with performance, sound and installation. Bløtkokt is their first piece together. With a site specific interest the project changes to different spaces, voices and collaborators. The performance premiered fall 2019 at Spriten Kunsthall in Skien, and previously been part of Tid for Dans i Porsgrunn, Dansmässan in Stockholm and Les Urbaines in Lausanne.
