Dans in Ontwikkeling 2

Thank you for being here | Residency project

Dance makers, Nanna Hanfgarn Jensen and Leon Emil Franzke are making an homage to each other. A thank you for the time, the space and intimacy that they share with each other and with the public. Together they form the NEON collective. In this new work they will look for their personal descent. They go in search of the roots of their families for the purpose of better understanding how they have become what they are and where they want to go. ‘Thank you for being here’ is therefore also a thank you to everyone whose DNA they carry.

Performers: Nanna Hanfgarn Jensen and Leon Emil Franzke.

‘Engel’ by Kim – Jomi Fischer and Marta Alstadsæter, winner of the BNG Bank Dance Prize 2018. A performance that depicts the inner, daily struggle of every person. Two performers – a circus acrobat and a dancer – are intertwined with each other in a physical dialogue, in which body weight, momentum and direction are taken away from each other. They were inspired by the collection of poems ‘Dust that Like a Girl’, in which writer Toon Tellegen describes the continuous struggle of a man who is defied by an angel.

Performers: Kim-Jomi Fischer and Marta Alstadsæter.
