Avant-Premiere: Ingri Fiksdal, April 12
During a month of recidency at Weld, the Norwegian choreographer Ingri Fiksdal have been preparing her latest work BAND together with Ingeborg S. Olerud, Rosalind Goldberg, Sigrid Hirsch Kopperdal, Pernille Holden and Venke Sortland. The work that will have premiere at the Black Box Theatre in Oslo April 18.
BAND is a performance that investigates the experience of a psychedelic concert. Yet, there are no musicians, no instruments, and no music to be heard. Kaleidoscopic shadows, drony movement, and a feeling of drifting away create the sound.
