THE CLOSET (2013)

Out of the closet oozes female aggression, primal dancing, a pang of jealousy and forbidden feelings.
What a relief that openness has become so hip!
But can all secrets be revealed?
Can the ugly ever be trendy?
And has bitterness become the new social disease?

Hedda´ing is a cross cultural, dance theatre exploration using Henrik Ibsen’s play Hedda Gabler as a source. Hedda’ing investigates the polarities that exist between the role of home as a sanctuary and as a prison, between memory and reality, and between the existential and the spiritual. Hedda’ing is set in and around the Stuart Collection’s “Fallen Star” by artist Do Ho Suh.

SEANSE

The year 2011 marks the twentieth anniversary of Siri Jøntvedt and Snelle Hall’s ongoing project, a distinctive form of dance art which is well on its way to becoming a recognised signature.

We have seen it in visual art and literature, but not many dance artists have dared to disregard prestige to this extent; Snelle and Siri exposed their vulnerable insides on stage long before vast numbers of people did the same on Facebook. They have presented 18 productions in the past 20 years, but when they now prepare to celebrate their anniversary it will be in “Norway’s smallest cinema”, albeit with something extra. The duo’s cultivation of dualities serves to tie together all the layers of choices and effects that the project presents.

MAKING AMERIKA (2010)

Siri&Snelle are never happy with status quo. This time they have decided to delve into their own escapism – but what are they longing for exactly? To figure this out, they navigate their artistic map, finding tableaus of text, passiondancing, some sentimental self-scrutiny and their own ironic twist. Along for the ride, is the uncategorizable musical trio called Huntsville, who wraps it all up in a mesmerizing soundscape.
