Reflections // Reflektioner
An audience can function as a mirror for a work to be reflected back upon itself. Like a signal/echo meeting a material bouncing back to the sender. As a tool for a creator and or performer.
A performance is, for the viewer, experienced through sensoric reflections of light, soundwaves, vibrations, smells, touch. These impulses generate considerations of subjects, matters and ideas.
When looking up the word reflection in a dictionary we found this:
The act of reflecting in casting back a light or heat, mirroring, or giving back or showing an image; the state of being reflected in this way.
An image: representation; counterpart.
A fixing of the thoughts on something; careful consideration.
A thought occurring in consideration or meditation
An unfavorable remark or observation
The casting of some imputation or reproach
We think these different descriptions and phenomena, can be directly linked to performing, moving, sharing, presenting, watching, viewing, experiencing – and we see this title as a filter for how one can read or experience performances in general. It is not to be understood as a theme of neither the evening nor the different performances. The works the artists are sharing at “Reflections // Reflektioner” has not been chosen to fit under a title. In fact, the invitation of what to share has been open for them to be led by their own interests at the moment. We have invited freelance artists because of Danseatelier’s wish to offer a continuous support for ourselves and our colleagues through creating opportunities where work can be shared in the context of a dance home.
