Dance Pieces

14th July

Dance-Text-Origin
Roots-Dance-Poetry

Two compositions I made for Marie Ronold Mathisen‘s choreography while she was studying in Northern School in Contemporary Dance in Leeds.

Both pieces performed in UK (Leeds, 2009) and Italy (Treviso, Trieste 2009). Dance-Text-Origin programmed on Futura Festival 2009 (France).

I used improvised sound material as a source for both compositions.

 

This is my first piece made for contemporary dance. The project I did in collaboration with Marie Ronold Mathisen – choreographer from Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds. Piece is about relations of origin and communication and how it affects ones life. We tried to express it in dance, voice and music.
