"Behind closed doors" is a performative reflection on the current state of democracy, questioning the idea around secret agreements made by governments, organisations and people with power.

“I only do chewing gum” is about the moment which appears when two people meet for the first time. We wish to give attention to this special moment which only happens once per human relation.

This performance event is based on interpersonal communication between audience and performers. It uses a method that invites an audience to continuously comment and give live feedback as the creative origins for a dancer's performance. By doing so, both dancers and the audience will share a response-ability for the event's choreography, which traverses through ethical boarders, empowers intimate moments and arrives to a point in which a “small dance” becomes important.

Can you imagine your body fall? Arms desperately outstretched looking to soften the impact. Fear of fall confronted. You've stared into the abyss. Deep breath taken, body straightened with honesty and passion. There's the first step, towards the great void. Now you fly…

Premiere: 06.12.2017 in Oslo, Grønland. Also performed outdoors under bridges in Hamar, Lillehammer and Trondheim.
“Under broene” is a Christmas concert placed in environments where the Salvation Army and others often find people who have sought shelter from the hard winter weather.
The Salvation Army ́s work in Oslo began under bridges. By holding Christmas concerts in these places, often seen as dark and dirty, we try to draw attention to the fact that Jesus came to our world, not in the royal fashion, but to share with us and our struggling lives.
(Amy Pender also performed in “Håp under broene" 2015 and 2016").

The urge for an independent refuge is a common one. People have looked for a refuge in the past and will do so in the future. We see this development today with internet communities and digital networks.
A physical space is no longer a border to find a refuge. The urge to draw up your own standards and rules is being translated into many forms.
The performance MORESNET is made by dance theater company bodytalk (D) and GOTRA (NL).
