Performance (Austrian première)
METTE INGVARTSEN (DK/B) / JEFTA VAN DINTHER (NL)
It’s in the Air

Choreography and performance: Jefta van Dinther and Mette Ingvartsen Lighting design and set: Minna Tiikkainen Sound design: Peter Lenaerts Dramaturgy: Bojana Cvejić Technology: Oded Huberman Production management: Kerstin Schroth

In their virtuoso dance performance, Mette Ingvartsen and Jefta van Dinther explore the relationship of bodies and movement and to do so shift the action into the air: the set and the working material are two enormous trampolines on which the two dancers leap, skip, spring, rock, and much more. The boundaries between free, deliberate movement and their culturally conditioned patterns are playfully explored. The trampoline not only facilitates different, new movements, dynamics, qualities and movement combinations, but above and beyond this has a kinaesthetic effect on the audience, ranging from excitement to hallucination to dizziness. It’s in the Air is a movement concert, a circus act, dance analysis, worldly wisdom and a children’s game all in one.
