In this showcase, OR/ELLER presents excerpts from two of their shows, WEB (2019) and V (2021). The two performances are the first two parts of a series of four developed from and within the same scenographic concept of two giant nets.
The dance and choreography duo OR/ELLER was founded in 2018 by Madeleine Lindh and Anja Arnquist. Their dance art is characterised by highly visual stage works. With their distinctive voice, OR/ELLER’s dance art is driven by the idea of curating their audience and not only creating dance art for the already initiated crowds. Therefore, the idea of cultivating the stage for dance art for children and young people, is a matter of the heart for OR/ELLER. Through the WEB series, OR/ELLER pursues its strong interest in meeting a wide audience.
In the family performance V, you are greeted by a peculiar dance experience, where a colossal set and a gigantic scarf act as the hollow nest of two peculiar characters. In WEB, 4-6 year olds are invited into the dancing set, where a sensory choreographic adventure takes the children on a dancing journey.
“We want to create dance art that takes your breath away, where the performance unfolds for viewing with a tone that is both complex and simple, kind of like that irresistible feeling of an approaching positivism, where both the seriousness and the humor have their place.”
OR/ELLER collaborates with an artistic team consisting of William Rickman, Johannes Fäst, Tobias Hallgren, Agnes Florin, Sepidar Hosseini, Anton Andersson and Naemi Gustavsson.
