We are neighbours now
Fluttering fans, magical boxes and a noisy sewing machine…
Children 6-9. Schools and family
It is dawn and three new neighbours have moved into the block creating voluntary and involuntary encounters in small elevators, winding attic stairs and out in the yard. It is sometimes easy and sometimes difficult to get to know each other. There are infinite ways to say hello. The performance is followed by a short workshop.
Based on Indian classical dance, flamenco and West African dance Ulrika, Josefine and Karin meet in rhythm, sound and movement together with three big transformable boxes.
Odissi dansproduktion has worked in a residence in Jordbro Kultur och föreningshus and together with school classes worked thematically around neighbourliness and accommodation.
