Björn Säfstens upcoming creation “Introduction”
opens Sept 20th at NorrlandsOperan. Additional performances
at Dansens Hus Oct 11th, 12th and 13th 2012.
Piñata of dissolvement, semiotic flicker and a kidnapping drama, blindfolded. The body center is displaced, the body’s balance is disrupted. It is somehow dysfunctional and scratchy while always meticulously executed with an acute, personal attention to detail. An introduction to something unspoken.
In the new performance Introduction choreographer Bjorn Säfsten and dancers Sophie Augot and Anja Arnquist put their ways of working under the loop – and turns their methods in and out to find new ways to approach their language. They are interested in how choreography creates identity, representation and presence, this time in an independent sequel to last year’s critically acclaimed” Display”. The two performances are part of a series entitled Attending Presence.
