From water to earth: Anders is going through the elements

August 17th, 2014 1:00 pm| by admin

Muld – the Danish word for dark, nutrient-rich soil from which to cultivate –  is the basis on which we develop new life and perhaps what Anders Christiansen is digging at in this one-hour dance performance piece. 

A unique character from the Danish dance and performance scene returns for this solo masterpiece Muld. 

Christiansen, who is known for his innovative solo and larger ensemble pieces (InOut readers might recall his aquaspective H20 in 2009), has for the past 20 years been entertaining both Danish and international audiences with his strong visual performances. 

The Ringsted-born dancer/choreographer, who is famous for taking everyday movements we are all familiar with and changing their meaning through relentless repetition, is in Muld investigating our past as an underlying energy – an energy that rumbles just below the surface. 

He questions whether we can sense history if we look deep into ourselves. Are we in fact a product of our history? Is our past our ‘muld’? Can history be felt if you focus on it strongly enough?

The idea, choreography and dance is all the work of Christiansen, with music composed by Jørgen Teller and the scenography by Lise Klitten. 

Dansehallerne can be found in Carlsberg Byen, were one can also tour the old factory, pet the famous Carlsberg horses, visit the Jacobsen Brewhouse and Bar or shop at Boxland before the performance.

Dansehallerne, Pasteursvej 20, Cph V; August 20-30; 55-125kr;
