WEB is a virtual nest, a floating spider web, an animated platform, or the climbing net in your backyard.Tickets
Together with Anja Arnquist and Madeleine Lindh you are invited to weave choreography out of the nets. In a poetic landscape, we suspend our thoughts from the ceiling, dance on imaginary paths, bead variegated ribbons from our bodies and let everyday life move into the theatre space and go up in smoke.
Since 2009, Madeleine and Anja have worked closely together under several umbrellas in the Swedish dance scene. With the performance WEB, they build on their ten-year collaboration and invite the scenographer... Johannes Fäst, the composer William Rickman and lighting designer Tobias Hallgren, to weave an artistic hybrid that juggles the formats of installation, dance performance and aestheticised playground.
As the duo constellation OR/ELLER, Anja and Madeleine conduct their dancing through multi-media processes, where the art is created in an interaction and in clusters of collaborations that aim to weave artistic hybrids.
With their expertise in dance and choreography, they want to create illusionary and sensory-sensitive performances in specific spatialities, where the power of transformation lies in the encounter between the work and its audience. Their artistry feeds a strong interest in cultivating the dance scene for children and young people in Sweden. Together they have built up a common experience of meeting a broad audience, by both dancing in, and choreographing, works with different types of interactivity at their core.
WEB is their first work as a duo, and in 2021 their next work will be the V, its premiere.
