FIELDS IN MOTION - NEW WORK BY E=MC2 DANCE

Dancework

Premier at 3:e Våningen 30 November 2017

 

Can an ordinary stage room become a new and unexpected setting for a dance performance? Yes, If you like the coreographer Gun Lund been a nomadic wanderer. Since the 80s she has been part of the movement that has conquered the public space with big, renowned, dance works.

 

With the new work ”Fields in Motion” she ties together experiences from the work in the public space and nature. This work has a deep connection with the artist Robert Smithson´s concept of site and non-site. Site is a place outside the gallery and the later an embodiment and a documentation inside the gallery

 

Here the terms site and non-site change place. The different spatiality creates a new and exciting experience. The coreographer is used to draw long lines in the open landscape, here she creates a concentration and a densifiying effect instead. With 7 dancers on stage, there are big possibilities in creating shapes, lines and structures. The picture is abstract, but still it represents an actual site. The result is surprising. ”Fields in Motion” is a work in an urban context.

KONSTVÅGEN ÖCKERÖ

Dancework / Art installation at Konstvågen

Öckerö 5-6 August 2017

 

Many of Gun Lunds works are site specific and have been compared with Live Sculpture and Visual Art. The site or the space is inhabited with Dance and the process is open for the audience to experience. Artists as Robert Smithson, James Turell and Bill Viola have been an inspiration though they are not dancers.

It is natural for Gun Lund to participate and give Dance a place in exhibitions and events together with other art forms. Since 2015 she has presented her works at Konstvågen - The Art Wave - an annual event in the Archipelago north of Göteborg. On the small island Burö people have been able to enjoy Dance on the rocks.

This year the audience can watch a Dancework / Art Installation from Burö Ferry Quay.

 

  • Performance at 1400h & 1600h Saturday and Sunday August 5 & 6   2017
  • Free Admission. Welcome!

Digital Footprints of Dance - new movements in Technology

Exclusive Preview at 3:e Våningen

16th of June at 20:00

 

The Choreographer Gun Lund, pioneer of Swedish Contemporary Dance based in Göteborg will present her new interactive.

 

For many years we have had a great interest in Dance and it´s Artistic and Technological counterparts. Dance is deeply rooted in our bodies, but the bodies are always interacting with the surrounding World, the Space, the Audiences, the intellectual Concepts and the Society…

In our work we have dwelled deeply into the the actual physiological processes - the conscious body and mind of a Choreographer meeting the knowledge of a skilled Medical Doctor.

 

With ”Good Vibrations” (Presented at NOFOD 2006) and ”Transmission” we developed an interactive system based on tactile communication. We clearly found that it was possible to develop new, never experienced movements when the audience was part of initiation of movements.

 

With ”Digital Footprints of Dance” the Dancers will be able to change and distort the space with their movements. Acceleration, Gravity, Directions in 3-Dimensional space are detected by accelerometers on their bodies. The output can modulate sound, light and video. The technology is developed together with Ideofon - Kristoffer Hagbard & Dan Henriksson.

 

Read more about the project here! ( In swedish  )

 

The Dancers will have to learn how to interact in a conscious way, thereby the interaction itself has an impact on the movements, modulating its directions, quality and energy. New moments will appear and at the same time change the world of performance, the stage or the space itself.

 

You are invited to experience the first moves of this radical system!

Sketches of the world- the seven continents

revival at 3:e Våningen

18-27th January

 

 

Sketches of the world was first premiered autumn 2015. The work was very well recieved by both the audience and the press and therefore we wanted to give more people the chance to experience this musical excursion around the seven continents of the world. With the help of The Gothenburg Combos wondrous guitar music we start our journey on the hard, icy surface of antartica, make a stop in the australian wildlife, contuinue on to Asias ingenious arabesques, and finally we end up on a sleepy town square in Al-andalus.
