Thursday 8.11

Workshop with Jon Tombre 11.00 - 14.00 in Frityren, Arktisk kultursenter

Participants are taken into an improvisational work where space, mood and image are created using moving light sources. Here you can experience experiences with improvisation in alternations between light and dark. We look at how rooms can arise and disappear and how group dynamics can be sustained. The workshop ends in an open work demonstration. Number of participants between 5 and 10. Participant numbers from 5 to 10. Register at marialandmark@gmail.com

JON TOMBRE is a Norwegian director with over 70 productions behind him. He is educated at the State Theater School and Ecole Lecoq in Paris. He has worked both in and outside the institutions across genres. He has worked at most theaters in Norway and in several international contexts. He has received the Heddapris "for special artistic effort" and twice the criticism award - for his stage work.  

"Beijing Stories" is shown 8. November 18.00 hr in Frityren,, Arktisk kultursenter. More about the performance here


Friday 9.11

Roosna & Flak, 10.00-11.30, Martha Andersen salen, Arktisk kultursenter

The class starts with simple movements in order to find functional connections in the body. This gentle beginning prepares the body for more complexity later on. After this we bring up the pulse and introduce more vigorous, technically challenging movement patterns.

About:
Internationally active choreographers and dancers Külli Roosna (Estonia) and Kenneth Flak (Norway) have been collaborating since 2008. Whether they are creating their own choreographies or dancing for others, their work deals with the narratives and technologies of the body. They have explored a wide range of themes, including ecology, ancient Viking mythology, contemporary internet culture and totalitarian regimes. The core of their work is the dancing body’s possibilities and limitations, in a constant dialogue with the digital technologies and discourses that extend and counterpoint it.Their interactive music and dance performance Blood Music was nominated for the Estonian Dance Awards 2015; Stalking Paradise, a commission work for Lublin Dance Theater, was selected for the biannual Polish Dance Days.

"Prime Mover" is shown Saturday 10 November at 18.00 hr in Ole Olsensalen, Arktisk kultursenter. More about the performance here.


Saturday 10.11

Thiago Granato, 10.00-12.00, Martha Andersen salen, Arktisk kultursenter

In this workshop, Thiago Granato invites to a journey where movement is used to challenge and expand the experience of time, by embodying the anatomical structure of the digestive system as the agent of a physical exploration. How can we cultivate a space in which we allow the spending of time in a non-functional way? How can the exploration of time turn into choreographic material? Is it possible that time itself become a composition?

Thiago Granato is an artist engaged in creating dance and choreographic practices with the potential of developing different ways to approach movement. His productions are the results of processes that insist on promoting experiences of political transformation and aesthetic innovation. His interest in movement is based on the capacity of the body to transform itself by translating inner abstract forces into recognizable signs.

"THIS IS CONCRETE" is shown Friday 9 November at 21.00 hr, in Ole Olsensalen, Arktisk kultursenter. More about the performance here.


Sunday 11.11

Tony Tran and Antero Hein, 10.00-11.30, Martha Andersen salen, Arktisk kultursenter

The workshop gives participants tools to develop movement in interaction with each other. We will focus on contact information and partnership with awareness on lifting, speed and active use of momentum. Eventually we will move into a more physical movement language consisting of technical lifting, acrobatic elements and floor work. The goal is to master taking risk, building trust and communicating well with each other. 

Tony Tran studied at Spin Off Forstudium i Dans at the Dance and Oslo National Academy of the Arts. He has worked as a freelance dance artist based in Oslo since 2012. He has worked as a performer for several Norwegian choreographers and creates his own projects in collaboration with other artists. His works have so far been shown in different venues in Norway, Sweden, Iceland and the Netherlands.

Finnish-Swedish Antero Hein is educated at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. In 2013 he started Hein Creations, where he works with film and photography through dance and art. He is an active freelance dancer based in Oslo. He founded the parkour group "TiP" in 2006, which now designs parkour parks in Sweden, holds training sessions and workshops and participates in events, films and advertisements.
