The Table Turns

The Table Turns

Dates: Saturday 04.05.19 2 PM and Sunday 05.05.19 2 PM.
Location: Atelier Nord, Olaf Ryes plass 2 (inngang Sofienberggata)

The Table Turns is about freedom and power on the dance floor, conveyed through four turntables and one dancer. The dancer controls the rotation of the records and the position of the pin through movement sensors. When the dancer dances to the music, the music appears directly and mechanically through the dance. Paradoxically enough, this control leads to a loss of freedom, a radical narrowing of the possibilities of movement. Since the dancer generates the music she tries to dance to, dance and music create and oppose each other simultaneously. By reversing the connection between sound and movement the performance questions the relationship between individual and community, the power dynamic between dance and music, and the tension between dance as an art form and dance as a social activity.
