CHOREOGRAPHY IN action
Artist talk / Kitt Johnson (DK)
A conversation with dancer and choreographer Kitt Johnson about the semantics of the room, about the dynamics of light and darkness, the legitimacy of time and the power of sound, the somatic and the dialectics of mentality, about the principal and existential focal points, about “ this not yet “and” the unknown knowns “.
This conversation is based on 30 years of experience with performing arts inside and outside the conventional framework.
