Kim-Jomi Fischer & Marta Alstadsaeter
Links for tickets will be available soon.
The performance will be part of a double bill
Where are the angels of our time?
Who is guiding us through the chaos of nowadays existence?
A circus acrobat and a dancer melt together in a physical dialogue through a constant exchange of weight, momentum and direction.
An organic performance about inner struggle, decision-making and the metaphysical.
Engel is inspired by the poetry of “Stof dat als een meisje” in which poet/writer Toon Tellegen describes a man who is haunted by an angel.
The artists Kim-Jomi Fischer & Marta Alstadsaeter
Kim and Marta met in 2015. Their different backgrounds in contemporary dance and circus sparked a blooming collaboration. During the last year they have been creating their own movement vocabulary, diving into the possibilities and qualities they find within this symbiosis, exploring their identity across languages. This has naturally led them into creating work together, creating a space where they can go beyond the frames of their disciplines and dive into the physical communication in between them.
Now working closely together with Dansateliers (NL) and Dansearena nord (NO) they are making work in Norway and the Netherlands.
Kim-Jomi Fischer and Marta Alstadsaeter are selected for Aerowaves Twenty19. Each year the Aerowaves network selects 20 of the most promising emerging choreographers in Europe.Aerowaves is a hub for dance discovery in Europe where the most promising new work by emerging dance artists are identified and then promoted through cross-border performances. Aerowaves’ network of partners in 33 countries enables these younger choreographers to bring brand new dance to brand new audiences in Europe. Dansehallerne is one of these partners.
