Marie Topp & Julia Giertz
12/3/2020 To our great regret, we have to cancel this performance and the rest of our program in Pakhus 11 due to the current situation with coronavirus. We are taking this distinct decision based on the call for protection of the public. We are of course sorry since we know what great experiences you are missing.
We will want to show these exceptional performances in the future to you and we are working to find solutions on how to.
All of you will get your money back for the cancelled tickets. It is our policy to keep you happy.
Part of the program Dansehallerne presents in Pakhus 11 in Spring 2020.
It is a reflection on listening and hierarchies within sound. It is a landscape of singing bodies, sustained sound and soft structures. It is a stream moving through humans, materials and environments. It is words being shaped by forces. It is Oceanic by choreographer Marie Topp and composer Julia Giertz.
To listen is not only an auditory process; it sharpens and shapes our attention, a subjective translation of information. Listening is a continuum of relationships.
Oceanic is part of a body of work dealing with how political and cultural structures are embedded in senses.
About Marie Topp & Julia Giertz
Marie Topp (DK) and Julia Giertz (SE) met at The National School of Performing Arts in Denmark (2005) – since then they have maintained a close artistic dialogue. During the last ten years they have been continuously involved in each other’s artistic projects as colleagues and collaborators. Often in collaboration with lighting designer Mårten K Axelsson and dramaturge Igor Dobricic.
Their performances can be experienced as time-pockets; immaterial spaces to be lost in; spaces of force, emotion and imagination that allows for the complexity of the senses to unfold. The body and the imagination are placed as central to the experience and the production of knowledge. The works are characterized by the coexistence of their practices and a shared interest in the craft of composition.
