“Objects on the loose are always in search of the rest of the plot”
Charles Jencks, describing Madelone Vriesendorp’ work.
Thing-Power is a dance performance for three dancers and a collection of objects and things.
In this piece, bodies and inanimate materials are recognised as equal choreographic forces; working with a multitude of forms, medias and textures, the performance focuses on the sensual agency of human and non-human relationships. Things, sounds and performers, all participate in a dance to create and understand their inter-connections and orientations.
Thing-power is a collaboration between choreographer and dancer Orfee Schuijt, visual artist Eirik Blekesaune, sound artist Kim Myhr, and dancers Ingrid Haakstad and Soile Voima.
