Workshop for children: Kriker og Kroker
With Karoline Bakken Lund, Veronica Bruce and Jennie Bergsli.
25 January / 15.00-15.55 / Foyer. Free admission. Age 7-12
Children are invited to take part in a creative, station-based workshop that explores textiles and movement. Playfully and spontaneously, we will put together our own performance. The workshop does not require any prior skills to participate.
Karoline Bakken Lund, Veronica Bruce and Jennie Bergsli work with textiles, sculpture, choreography and dance. This spring, they collaborate on the performance Bløtkokt – a project where the disciplines and methods are intersected. During this workshop for children, Lund, Bruce and Bergsli will share some of their interdisciplinary practices and site-specific approach.
Dance workshop: Energetic Icons
With the Every Body Electric team
25. January / 16.00-16.40 / Lille Scene. Free admission. Children +8 and adults
In this workshop, the team of Every Body Electric – presented on January 25–26 at Black Box teater – will share their research on movement. Each body has its own specific way of articulating its dynamics. Movements become a kind of endogenous fuel. During the workshop we will search for individual and collective movements which allow the body to become charged. What other possibilities open up when, for example wheelchairs, prostheses or crutches are staged as extensions to the body? Personal rhythms, dynamics, beats and bodily characteristics lead to unique dance styles. Every Body Welcome!
