ON THIS SIDE OF THE SHADOW (2011)
On This Side of the Shadow is the second part of a series of works that deal with happiness. In this work two people meet each other. Happiness is to be seen and to experience that you exist. Happiness is friendship. In this performance the dance advances like a stream of consciousness, only to reverse back to simply being still. The contact between two people creates tensions and bursts in the movement. In this work dance and theatre is combined, accompanied by live music.
Happiness is a trilogy of contemporary dance works. The first part was God Day (2008), which dealt with the happiness that the small things in the day-to-day life bring. The third part will deal with love and falling in love, and it opens in 2013.
