ME TOO

Imagine hearing movement and seeing sounds. In Me Too, handbells and movement melt into a beautiful, clear and tangible synthesis. Helgebostad/Rueslåtten have created a piece based on the sound of acoustic hand bells and physical movement. We are hearing movements and seeing sounds as colours, energy and three dimensional singing and dancing sculptures in space. The dancers conjure up a collective movement that constantly transforms itself, like an eternal metamorphosis. They melt together handbells, bodily movement, scenography and light into a black box landscape of materialized energy.

 

ME TOO premiered at Dansens Hus (Oslo) in 2015, and has since been selected for the International Aerowaves Network 2016 and nominated for the Norwegian Critics Prize 2015. Touring include 4+4 days in Motion festival (Prague) / BIT Teatergarasjen (Bergen) / Spring Forward Festival (Århus) / Ice Hot Nordic Dance Platform (Copenhagen) / WHYNOT Festival (Amsterdam) / Avant Garden (Trondheim) / Ravnedans (Kristiansand) / Bodø Biennalen (Bodø) / RAS (Sandnes) / BORA BORA (Århus) / DanseFestival Barents (Hammerfest)
