Dance band music and body politics.


13 March


14 March


The second Late Night of the spring will feature dance band music and body politics.
The dancer Marianne Kjærsund has for 11 years been inviting audiences into the choreographer's office. Malin Hellkvist Selléns weekend solo Pink promises. With an open heart, the performance aims to explore the body, identity and movement in relation to the music and dance of dance band culture.

Based on a queer value base and a pink consequence, a choreography that is as emotional as it is analytical is created with serious humour.
Pink promises is an hour-long romantic exercise in values and an emotional swing that leaves no one untouched.


Speak out on "Pink Promises" Wednesday 13 March, 21:15-22:15 pm
Psychologists go to the theatre Thursday 14 March 21:15-22:15 pm
