ExPro Stage - June 2  

COUNTERPOINT:

BODY, SOUND and IMAGE 

Friday June 2

This transdisciplinary dance-music-painting performance co-creates a new dialogue where emotions guide the journey through visual and acoustic landscapes.  Our belief is that dance and painting can be heard, and music can be seen. We invite you to experience a contrapuntal meeting among body, sound and image, where we explore different rooms of emotions and atmospheres.

CONTRIBUTOR

Dance: Emma Minarelli (IT), with a classical ballet training and studies in W. Forsythe and M. Cunningham techniques, researches and performs instantaneous movement composition in an interdisciplinary framework. 

Violinist: Agnes Högberg, with a background in classical music, is currently active in various musical contexts and genres, mainly in the ensemble Bortre Rymden.

Painting and photo: Eva Abeto (FR), is a bridge maker and a storyteller using multimedia techniques and also having a strong experience with many different media, tools and body of expression such as, paint, printing, live performance, dance, music and social media.

TRANSFORMATIONS 

Transformations, is a solo work that explores different kinds of bodily transformations. In the work we meet a character who is looking for a new self and a new skin to live in. Through movement and text, the viewer is invited into a personal and intimate space. An alien layer presents a future where anyone can become anything.

 

CONTRIBUTORS

Anna-Greta Himmer is a dancer and choreographer based in Gothenburg. She graduated from Balettakademien Göteborgs Dansutbildning in 2023 and has since worked to establish herself as a dancer and creator.

Resonance Unveiled 

"Tales from the White Room"

"Tales from the White Room" is the meeting of two men. Two different existences in perhaps different dimensions of time. Two versions of the same person. A scenic attempt where there is no real end goal other than transmutation, an alchemical experience through the voice.

 

CONTRIBUTORS

Sebastian Ruiz and Jan Rådvik started this creative process a few years ago, immersing themselves in deep work with voice, listening and movement. Today they share with the public what their practice has been.

ExPro Stage - residency and stage presentation

MYSK, in collaboration with World Dance Company & Andra Våningen at Oceanen offers a new guest performance stage in a small and intimate format for Gothenburg dancers and performance artists.

In 2018, a pilot study was carried out to investigate the need to provide Gothenburg with a new guest performance stage in a small and intimate format. ExPro Stage is a development of the project and a platform that makes it possible to examine the artistic work by inviting the audience to its scenic process of experiments, labs, conversations, work in progress and the artist's needs in the development phase.

 

ExPro also includes a collaboration with Danscentrum Väst's residency activities. The residency means that during the fall of 2020, the artist commits to meeting the ExPro stage's audience, either in the form of a "work in progress" show or as a finished performance.
