In «One gust of wind – and they all dance», the audience is invited into a unique landscape where organic mechanisms and processes become a ritual. The work explores bodies as nature and the cycles shared with all life. Each performer has a designated place within the room and without leaving their place, they respond to the energy and the impulses that pass between them. A network of roots intertwines, the sound travels through the space and the dancers are lifted and moved by the same gust of wind.
The work premiered in May 2017 and is available for touring.
The performance is adjustable regarding numbers of dancers, room/stage, technique and settings.
Contact producer Jorunn Kjersem Hildre for further questions/inquires.
