Som en del av TILT Grow 2021 har deltagerne i talentprogrammet laget hver sin solo i samarbeid med seks nasjonalt anerkjente koreografer.
The driftwood on it’s journey at sea is being constantly formed and shaped by every experience. Repeatedly stroked by the waves, the winds and strains of the weather on every surface. In continuous motion whereas the only constant is “change”. Change sometimes means leaving a small part of you behind, a tiny piece of the wood or just smoothening the edges.
In “Driftwood” dancer Sarjo Sankareh tries to explore a place of memory and shapes formed by experiences.
The thought came as a reaction of talking about identity, immigration tragedies and crises which had been constant, experiences on the sea and hopes of reaching ashore.
For the physical process we had gone outside by the sea/fjord to work with some pieces of driftwood which were present by the shore. This work was later brought to the studio and put together in movements to evoke a memory of these physical objects which are formed by the waves. Breath and water are two main elements in the work.
Dette er samtidsdans.
NB: Denne koreografien er ikke finansiert av skattebetalernes penger, så her er det bare å senke skuldrene og kose seg.
Kjerringa med staven
Barken kryper inn
Noe kjært er borte
En venn er fallen
Hele verden i mine hender
Fra form til kjempe
Organic fictions, machinic states
Organic fiction, machinic states er en spekulativ undersøkelse av samspillet mellom mennesket og teknologi, naturlandskap og bylandskap, det “organiske” og det “kunstige”. Arbeidet inviterer publikum til å fantasere og fabulere over teknologien som en forlengelse av menneskekroppen og skape fortellinger om og assosiasjoner til industrien, byutvikling, naturromantikk, mennesket og maskinen.

The Sense of Freedom
The Sense of Freedom explores the use of music and text together with the movement rhythms of Lou Ditaranto. The audience journeys through the inner thoughts of Lou as she speaks and dreams about the subject of freedom. Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for strings is the musical base, which breathes phrases of hope and hopelessness in conjunction with Lou’s edited voice, which acts as an extra percussive element. Frenetic, yet calm, this is an attempt at expressing what it feels like to be a dancer during a time of crisis.
We don’t think about it twice
Unless we’re being asked to think about it
And that’s beautiful in itself
As well as questionable, in a way
Everything I worship
Everything I’m allowed to do
Everything I am wanting to do, I do
Because I’m free to do so
