STRETCH 2014 - DANCE ME

Dance Me with Molly Haslund, Christian Jankowski, Tadashi Kawamata, Sigalit Landau, Skånes Dansteater, Rachel Tess, Salla Tykkä
Skipping ropes and platforms in the tree tops, performances in the Park – inside and outside Dance Me presents artists that explore movement, make connections between life and art, and affect both body and mind. The works create awareness of our body. What directs our movements and activities? How is everyday life choreographed? In Dance Me sculpture, dance and choreography meet and merge with works that are solid and ephemeral, intimate and playful.

Performances and workshops please see program below

Tadashi Kawamata has built platforms high up in the trees overlooking the grounds, while Molly Haslund transforms familiar swings and drawing compasses into sculptures for coordinated participation. Elements of play and exercise, rhythm and repetition reappear in the film works of Christian Jankowski, Sigalit Landau and Salla Tykkä. The movement shifts from the external to internal – engaging with our innermost selves and activates feelings of pain, joy and collaboration. Dancer and choreographer Rachel Tess investigates the empathic response to bodies in motion in a confined space. In Souvenir, a mobile choreographic architecture, she invites the audience to both sense and experience the performance from an unusually close vantage point. Skånes Dansteater contributes with performances and actions in the Park that mark the start of a longer collaboration. In a series of exhibitions and site specific works Wanås Konst has explored sculpture and the relation between the artwork and the viewer. Dance Me goes beyond disciplines with choreographic architecture, coordination models and performances.

Dance Me is a part of Stretch, a Wanås Konst initiative that began in 2011, which approaches and explores various creative disciplines through a series of exhibitions. Dance, choreography, and sculpture meet and merge through Stretch programming for 2014. The exhibition also marks the start of a three year collaboration between Wanås Konst and Skånes Dansteater, one of Scandinavia's foremost scenes for contemporary dance.
