Welcome to a double bill evening presenting two different performances:
Wrinkles is a modern dance theater performance based on our personal relationship with Alzheimer's. The performance is a memory of two elderly people who goes through the ups and downs in life individually and together. Wrinkles is about friendship, trust and personal relations. It revolves around the last thoughts of a person with Alzheimer's.
Choreographer and dancer: Mikkel Alexander Tøttrup

A research-based project with reference in inappropriate behavior in various contexts. Areas that it’s touching, among others, is the representation of female body in hiphop industry, feminist agenda, fetishism, body modification. The spectators are taken into a journey, where they are invited to reflect on their own references and create awareness of their experiential associations under the exposure of certain visual, audio and other elements of stimulation. The audience is encouraged to respond to the performance, while the piece discloses a discussion within the audience’s own ethics and prejudices. HARD WHITE is a question, a dialog and most of all an inappropriate ride to the politics of self-expression.
Performer and choreographer: Nadja Bounenni
After the two performances we invite the audience to participate in an open dialog with questions and comments.
