WOWOWOW is a collaboration between the dancers’ collective Fanclub and choreographer Quim Bigas (ES), an investigation within and around collectivity, in close relation between performers and audience.
WOWOWOW is space for reflection upon (the) collective. A place where a set of images appears and disappears. A collection of actions and ephemeral statements. A radical mode of being in a structure through the lenses of being present and in relation, always. You. We. Us.
WOWOWOW suggests a visualization of “our” movement as a mode to unfold an assemblage, an ecology of things, in which certain aspects of the self comes at stake as a mode to trigger different layers of relations that takes place in the moments we talk about “us”. A big, yet tiny – us.
Fanclub (DK/SE/NO) is a dancers’ collective who invite artists they find fascinating into different collaborations. In 2010 Andrea Deres, Carolina Bäckman, Ellesiv V. Selseng and Sofia Karlsson got together with a wish to challenge the working formats within the Danish dance arts. Today they see themselves as a collective in ongoing development, initiating collaborations with people from various genres with a desire to explore structures around and within the art form, as well as their role as dancers and self-producing artists. Their work range from bigger and smaller stage productions, video art, events, concerts, sharing structures and writing rituals.
Quim Bigas Bassart (ES) is an artist working within the fields of choreography, performance arts, information and education. His interest in dance lies in the choreographical, the conversational, the practice and the encounter. He has a tendency towards working focus on movement research, social interactions and information procedures. His works are very diverse, located around concerns and triggers on the gaze, the idea of experience, the present, performativity and commitment in an artistic environment. Quim currently lives between Copenhagen and Barcelona where he develops his own work, as well as collaborating with other artists and facilitating sessions as a regular staff on choreography at the Danish National School of Performing Arts in Copenhagen.
