Shoegaze

World Premiere 27th of September

Recommended from 13 years old | about 60 min

A performance about the small, the big and everything in between.

In the music genre Shoegaze, the musicians always look focused down at the floor, at their feet. What are they actually looking at? Choreographer Kristin Helgebostad compares them to gigantic giants who look down on complex hyper-landscapes of moss, ants, wasps and insects. Like the giant Atlas who is condemned to carry the firmament on his shoulders, we all, including the giant, must bear the fact that we are treading on what is beneath us.

Shoegaze explores perspectives in our existence and togetherness with great curiosity. Meet the tiny and the huge in this magical dance performance.

Kristin Ryg Helgebostad is a Norwegian performer and choreographer based in Oslo. She welcomes a wide range of different performative and choreographic strategies into her practice, and works in several collaborations both as a performer and a choreographer. Long term collaborators include Ingeleiv Berstad, Laura Marie Rueslåtten, Eivind Seljeseth, Chrisander Brun, Ida Wigdel and Irene Theisen. She is now a part of Bananaz, an association that binds together various performing artists and their work and emphasises collective working methods.

The multi-artist Chrisander Brun is characterized by an inventive and visually accurate artistry. Chrisander has a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from the Dramatic Institute, in theater and performing arts (June 2010). The list of artistic collaborations and projects is long, but an excerpt from recent years' work is Galaksehopen, Exit Parkour, Cash Money Flow (2022), Partita no. 2, Antigone, Romeo and Juliet, The Boss Lady Ingeborg, Pride and Prejudice Landscape (2021). Chrisander has previously created lighting, scenography and costume design as well as performance photography for Norrdan's performance Everlasting Event (2023) and PROXY (2019). The last few years' concept images for Norrdans are also those photographed by Chrisander.
