……….. Performances will include:

Weave 1: Birgitte Bauer-Nilsen
Thomas og Alexander An intercultural performance installation Melting Ice/Siku Aappoq. The focal point is the Greenlandic and Scandinavian perspectives of the consequences of the melting ice in relation to global climate change. The nature, human existence and behaviour is in motion with an opening to something new. This appears abstract metaphorical – metamorphosis through a simplification of the expression – timeless and universal, as warnings of an imminent change. You will see a dialogue between the imbalance in man and in the iceberg in transition.
Billede2-1 The dance performance “Footprint” is inspired by the story of Buddha’s journey towards enlightenment. Our walk of life tells a story about who we are and what makes us recognizable. When we share footprints, we gain new awareness and follow new paths.
When the danish and indian cultures meet, it is an innovative interaction between traditional Indian musical instruments, contemporary acoustic jazz, electronica, contemporary and classical Indian dance, martial arts and modern dance, ballet and release technique.

‘Diffraction is a mapping of the interference, not of replication, reflection or reproduction. A diffraction pattern does not map where differences appear, but rather maps where the effects of difference appear’.  Haraway, 1992, p. 333). Cixous, H. (1991) Coming to writing and other essays. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press Haraway, D. (1997) Feminism and Technoscience.
