The evening will be a double bill performance consisting of two pieces Brighton Boys-work in progress and Essendo where the artists will use movement and music in different ways to express themselves.
Brighton boys-work in progress
1950. On the sunny Brighton Beach at the Japanese East Coast, the water is warm, and the work is grey. Simon gets pregnant, but the mermaid is nowhere to be found. Can he be a mother without her? And will Paul From Work still want to dance with him at the annual Tropicana Party?
Brighton Boys is a dance theatre story of love, distance, family and the struggle to be a real human in a sea of piña colada.
Performing: Det Fynske Dansekompagni
Choreography: Marie Keiser-Nielsen
Essendo (in Italian being, the gerund of the verb to be) is a duet where the performers meet in a continuous dialogue.
The piece tries to show honesty towards the self in a journey where vulnerability is embraced, and not refrained from. If we forego self-judgment and strip ourselves from our ideas of the future, can we allow a moment to rise and fall to its own accord and simply be?
Concept and dancer: Giorgia Reitani
Live music and voice: Abraham Rademacher
