Bára Sigfúsdóttir & Eivind Lønning - TIDE

mon 18/07/2016 > fri 29/07/2016

TIDE entangles contemporary dance and experimental music in a different way than we are used to see in stage performances. The project is a creative collaboration between Icelandic choreographer and dancer Bára Sigfúsdóttir and Norwegian composer and musician Eivind Lønning.

TIDE is an invitation to an unforgettable experience of the senses . . .

In TIDE Bára and Eivind will exchange and combine their unique methods for using improvisation in order to find and build material - bringing together their complementary strengths. The performance will be a structured improvisation where the acting and responding in the present is equally important as the prepared foundation of the structure of the piece. This allows both protagonists on stage to fully explore all variations possible and simultaneously being free to communicate towards the audience. In the making and performing of TIDE Bára and Eivind will actively share their insights, working methods, individual disciplinary-based tools and their innovating ideas in their field.

TIDE explores the interactions, frictions, parallelisms and oppositions between the visual and the audible stimuli. Both performers have a unique capacity to touch an audience in an unexpected way. They render high quality - some might say abstract - work accessible even for a non trained audience, by offering the viewer a tool to enter their world. When watching and listening to Bára and Eivind on stage, your imagination is triggered and your senses are enlarged.

Premiere at kc Nona Mechelen on the 9th of September 2016!
