FLÖKT – a flickering flow offers an exploration of our bodily connection with the world surrounding us. It suggests that nature is not something that solely exists outside of us but something we can also sense and experience through our bodies.
The audience is invited into a white silk dome which is in a constant state of transition, allowing you to feel the close proximity of things, bodies, the space, the sound, the lights and the massive presence of this environment which literally surrounds you. A journey inside an interconnected poetic miniature of our world.
In FLÖKT, choreographer and dancer Bára Sigfúsdóttir joins forces with visual artist Tinna Ottesen, composer Eivind Lønning, light designer Jan Fedinger, and dancers Aëla Labbé and Meri Pajunpää who join Bára on stage. Fascinated by the immersive, and by the moment the body gives in to its surroundings, FLÖKT is a partly visible and partly invisible dance. Can you experience a dance performance in the same way you experience a waterfall?
