PHANTASMAGORIC is a flow of images, ideas, emotions and sensations that can force their way into your body – voluntarily or involuntarily. Space, objects, music and movement intermingle in a diverse and colourful universe of reflections and illusions, memories, obstructions and desires. You are drawn into spontaneous as well as fabricated streams of thought. Outbursts form a series of different moods and conditions which disappear as quickly as they arise. With PHANTASMAGORIC you are taken into a space that hangs in the balance between what we are, what we could have been, and what we can become.
PHANTASMAGORIC premiered at Dansens hus (Oslo) 4 February 2016, and will be touring at TOU (Stavanger), BIT (Bergen) and MDT (Stockholm) in 2018.
