Cosmic Body (2015) / Archive

« Back to Work


Cosmic Body is Ingri Fiksdal’s new expanse of choreographed lights, illusions, sounds, moving bodies and objects. Noticeable inspired by the idea of perpetual motion and kinetic flow, Fiksdal has constructed Cosmic Body as something joyously hypnotic and mischievously spacious. The synergy and shifting relationships of elements and bodies creates an intensity that aims for an immersion of the spectators. The piece speaks to the activity of changing perspective and floating visions in attempt to capture an altered state of perception. The expansion of choreography in interplay with the environment, explores the boundaries between spectacle and participatory event.

With Cosmic Body Fiksdal collaborates again with performer Pernille Holden, musician Ingvild Langgård (Phaedra) and visual artist Signe Becker.

Signe Becker, Tilo Hahn and Mia Melinder is nominated to Heddaprisen 2016 (Norwegian National Theatre Award) for Best scenography and costumes for Cosmic Body.
