VIKING RUNES (2015)

A high energy, poetic and powerful dance performance which draws inspiration from Norse mythology, Vikings and the dult movie The Hunger Games.

 

Representing a game of life and death, the performance reflects on the basic human emotions and instincts in a new perspective through virtuosic body language that merges urban dance, new dance and contemporary circus.

 

Seven fearless shape shifters form a clan in a world dominated by brutal, arcane and humorous games of love, power and hope. They are warriors with powers from Nordic gods and godesses, mythological half beast creatures and Valkyries inhabiting a fantasy world the reaches into the future from the past.

Review from Weekendavisen, Majbrit Hjelmsbo:
"I 7 RUNER er der hele syv skarpslebne, individualistiske krops-
virtuoser at stirre sig glad i låget på. Hep, det er hipt!".
