Sure is a performance that is invested in the act of world making, that is not trying to pretend everything is okay. The performance spends time with what is no longer here and how the leakage of these emotions shape the very surfaces of bodies as well as worlds.
The piece addresses and stays with the losses of our time; it may be extinction, glaciers melting, heartache, death or loneliness, and it takes notice of how these losses can shape current choreography. It does not impose, but opens up a space of dwelling, that can be a place of rest from more gain and lets you sit with the feeling of loss, even if its shape is ambiguous.
We lay out a dramaturgy of a melancholic rave that gives a sense of “nothingness” through the repetition of dances and music. We are keeping a distance to the expression of emotions; we stay passive in the active, we form an indifferent intimacy. We insinuate this nothingness is non-ending and let the audience zone out into spheres that slip into other universes unnoticeably.
Amalia Kasakove (FI) and Anna Lea Ourø (DK) are a Copenhagen based artist duo that reside in the field of dance and choreography. After graduating from The Danish National School of Performing in 2017 they moved to Paris, where the concept behind the piece Sure began to take form. Kasakove and Ourø continued to develop their work on the island of Skomvær at the artist residency Røst AiR before they returned back to Copenhagen. Since then their work has been awarded at Cannes Film Festival 2018 (Director Jeppe Lange) and they have showed their work at various venues in Denmark and France.
