EMBALLAGE

A performance about identity and surface, about roles and independence, about daring to follow your own path while at the same time being part of a group.

 

Emballage plays with the images of our selves, our outer characteristics, the way we try out our different shells, try out our appearances through movement, attitude, clothing, style. Emballage is a poetic image of real life, an expression of the uncertainty in the world of young people.

 

Emballage is the first performance in a new series for the younger audiences.

SKETCHES OF THE WORLD - THE SEVEN CONTINENTS

Gun Lund and E=mc2 Dance create wondrous landscapes to exquisite music by guitar duo The Gothenburg Combo

 

Gun Lund expands this musical universe by filling sounding, luminous rooms with movement. Dancers Gunilla Jansson, Olof Persson, Åsa Thegerström and Gun Lund herself share these rooms with musicians David Hansson and Thomas Hansy, and invite the audience to an atmospheric journey over the seven continents.

 

"The guitar, probably the most nomadic instrument in the world, becomes not only voice but also body in this beautiful staging. And the choreography is exemplary in its restraint, at times one thinks of Birgit Åkesson and Merce Cunningham..." - Dagens Nyheter

 

Premiere 13 November 2015 at 3:e Våningen in Gothenburg.

LINIER

E=mc2 Dance join forces with Gageego!, ensemble for contemporary music, in the creation of a spectacular danced concert!

 

We enter an arena where two grand pianos, a vibraphone and a marimba are fixed points, while four dancers are mobile elements. The spectator seats surround the stage, offering a closeness in both visual and audial experience. Luciano Berio’s Linea is a strict, wild and curious composition, originally conceived for dance. Victor Varela’s Linear Dances follows and creates a dialogue with the Berio piece. The dancer’s patterns start off in circular motions, with rotations clockwise and counter clockwise succeeding each other. Lines in the music find their parallel equivalent in the choreographic form and expression, and successively lines emerge even on the floor…

 

Music: Linea by Luciano Berio, Linear Dances by Victor Varela, Ricambi by Lars Sandberg

Choreography and staging: Gun Lund

Performers: Gageego! and Emc2 Dance

 

Premiere 18 September 2015 at 3:e Våningen Gothenburg.
