ABOUT THE EVENT
Award winning Kvart takes place on a square woollen blanket and explores a type of dance that is not so often shown on stage – dancers who dance for each other.
To crackling French music from the 1930’s the audience gets invited into a game with The Ring – perhaps the oldest symbol in the world.
Gone is a little wonder about the relationship between sadness and nostalgia, about where something ends and something else begins, and about the aggression and denials that one must go through along the way.
The performance is created by Jo Strømgren who has excelled at home and abroad as a choreographer, director, scenographer, and playwright. He is known for mixing dance and theater, often combined with a lot of humor. His performances have toured in over 60 countries and for the first time one of these is shown in Kristiansund.
