Tumbling into the space after sadness, Lowlands is a soft lament to the voice of self critique. The work shapes a meditative landscape of rippling blue tissue paper that lulls and endures. Images emerge evoking a body falling apart and gathering itself together again, a body at sea and a body on a patchwork of waves. 

Lowlands is a large-scale solo performance by choreographer Emilia Gasiorek that spans the deep blue depths of our personal emotional landscapes and collective geographical environments. Lowlands is part of a new body of work dealing with how emotional states shape the matter of bodies and worlds. It is co-produced by Dansehallerne and will premiere at Salen, Rentemestervej, Copenhagen from 2nd - 4th September 2021.
