by Mina Weider (NO)
Mina Weider continues her investigation of the legacy of Norwegian free dance by inviting four dance artists to create and perform new dance that in various ways processes and investigates the Norwegian free dance.
Through individual and collective practices, professional interests, choreographic strategies and bodily capacities emerge and shed light on a contemporary landscape of perspectives on the national historical dance.
Weider, Seljeseth, Kongsness, Mjøen and Schia examine this heritage through the performance format "dance evening", which was often used in the first half of the 20th century and which consisted of a number of shorter dances, made by different choreographers.
The performance contains an introduction to the project and a demonstration of work in process, and is particularly suitable for anyone interested in Norwegian dance history and the legacy of Norwegian fridans*.
