STATE (2016) / Archive

« Back to Work


STATE is part dance performance and part live concert, and ings out of a lengthy research into ritual dances from a range of places and times. The interest lies in what mental and bodily states these dances can produce amongst performers and spectators. Together with renown costume designer Henrik Vibskov and the world-touring noise musician Lasse Marhaug, Fiksdal and Petersen have created an immersive performance, where choreography, costume, sound, light and Norwegian spirits take the audience on a suggestive trip. STATE is performed by five dancers and two musicians.
