Love you… not forever!
Love you… not forever!
Love you … not forever!
By Granhøj Dans
A technological dance performance (World premiere)
March 7 and 8, 2018 | 20:00
Internationally acknowledged dance company Granhøj Dans from Denmark appears for the first time on a Berlin stage!
A young man explores the world of love through his smartphone and the boundaries of how bodily expressions are articulated and exposed in virtual reproduction.
Through the camera of his smartphone he observes four dancers involved in a love drama. These images and videos are projected live during the performance. The physical life is set in contrast to the smartphones’ production of virtual life. The audiences’ involvement will therefore alternate between their experience of what happens in the drama between the four dancers, and the young observer’s experience of the same.
The man chooses a non-binding reproduction of bodily expressions and love over so called reality. He lives his life through his smartphone’s production of virtual life – a simulated life – using the smartphone for self- affirmation to create the identity and reality that he wants to be associated with. For some this identity would be the perfect twosomeness or lonley threesomeness……. can it end in loneliness for him?
The performance also explores the smartphone’s infiltration of all aspects of our lives highlighting the relationships between the private, intimate and public spheres which all glide into each other.
Granhøj Dans is an internationally acknowledged dance company that has its base in Denmark.
