The evening will be a double bill performance consisCng of two pieces “Brighton Boys-work in progress” and “Essendo” where the arCsts will use movement and music in different ways to express themselves.
Brighton boys-work in progress
1950. On the sunny Brighton Beach at the Japanese East Coast, the water is warm, and the work is grey. Simon gets pregnant, but the mermaid is nowhere to be found. Can he be a mother without her? And will Paul From Work sCll want to dance with him at the annual Tropicana Party?
Brighton Boys is a dance theatre story of love, distance, family and the struggle to be a real human in a sea of piña colada.
Performing: Det Fynske Dansekompagni Choreography: Marie Keiser-Nielsen
Lucy - work in progress
Lucy is dance solo performance, inspired by the subject of re- wilding.
The title takes inspiration from Lucy, what they named the fossils of what it seems to be the oldest human found on Earth.
Captured in a society where we tie up our identity with accomplishments and labels, can we reconnect with our ancestors and live our bonds with nature, our instincts and in a more genuine rhythm?
The piece will be a journey "home", where music and movement will lead the audience trough a rediscovery of our roots.
Dance and Choreography: Giorgia Reitani
Composer: Ilmo Lars Pio Simonsen
Both performances are 20 minutes ca. and are aimed for an audience of young people and adults from the age of 14
