Water reflection. What do I see?
Is it me?
How do we relate to each other?
Can we find a common rhythm?
I How to read water #3 presenterer dansekunstner Anna Thu Schmidt og vokalist Thea Ellingsen Grant en rekke en-til-en-forestillinger utendørs i nærheten av Rotvollfjæra. De tidlige morgentimene ute i naturen setter rammene for møtet mellom tilhører og musiker, danser og tilskuer. Sittende overfor hverandre, på to meters avstand, smelter kroppene inn i landskapet og danner en felles virkelighet og et intimt rom. Forestillingen starter med en kort spasertur utendørs før du møter utøveren som ønsker deg velkommen i en improvisert solo på 15 minutter.
Oppmøte utenfor Rotvoll Kunstnerkollektiv, Arkitekt Ebbells veg 22
NB: Forestillingen er utendørs. Ta med klær etter været, og gjerne et sitteunderlag om du har!

In How to read water #3 dance artist Anna Thu Schmidt and vocalist Thea Ellingsen Grant present a series of one-on-one performances outdoors near Rotvollfjæra. This natural environment in the early morning hours forms the setting for the encounter between listener and musician or dancer and viewer. Sitting opposite each other at a distance of two meters, bodies blend into the landscape and form a reality together in a shared space. The performance starts with a short walk to the outdoor location where the performer welcomes you for an improvised solo of 15 minutes.
Meeting point: outside Rotvoll Kunstnerkollektiv, Arkitekt Ebbells veg 22
Dance: Anna Thu Schmidt
