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

With ”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-siteSite 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 choreographer is used to draw long lines in the open landscape, here she creates a concentration and a densifying 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.
