Skuggan/ The Shadow & The Fountain of Youth

Ett tillskruvat, skulpturalt och humoristiskt solo i en svart dräkt.
Med film och olika karaktärer fångar Bronja upp skuggan som bor i oss, eller bredvid oss?
I sitt utforskande av temat att förbli dansare i en värld där kroppens åldrande är extremt blottat, växte skuggan fram. En vän att följa livet ut.
Med den svarta dräkten försvann alla tecken på ålder och kroppen började tala för sig själv. Inte gav det inte de svaren som nog vart tänkta, nä, det blev en figur som vi kan se överallt och när som helst om vi bara stannar upp och tittar.
Med generositet, form och värme möter Skuggan sin publik och lämnar alla med glädjen att ha en vän livet ut.
En afton till för alla.

The Shadow

Two solos – one theme

The Shadow
I’m always there, but nobody recognizes me. The Shadow. With the black costume all signs and traces of age are gone and something else, maybe an inside or another quality can be read. The Shadow Is like an immaterial Bronja Novak Lindblad, always next to her, behind or in front. It can be pure form, it can be a character, it can be vulnerable, it can playfully move between her and you.









The Fountain of Youth
The Fountain of Youth Is a dance on forever-youngness and on being old enough to tell the story differently The Fountain of Youth Is a research in dance, dedicated to exploring and questioning dominant views on ageing dancing bodies through her own improvisation-based dance practice and performance making an untrustworthy lecture on trusting an ever-changing body. The Fountain of Youth is also the core part of Susanne Martins doctoral.

a Big Wind production supported by Statens Kulturråd, Gbg Stad, Tanzfabrik Berlin, Middlesex University. As a new step in their long-term collaboration Bronja Novak Lindblad and Susanne Martin both created a solo on the same subject. Each in a unique way deals with the facts of getting older and sustaining in the world of dance, where the signs of ageing are extremely exposed and judged. However, a new generation of contemporary dancers keep performing past their 40s, with no intention to stop. Bronja & Susanne are two of them; ‘The Shadow’ and ‘The Fountain of Youth’ are two creative responses to this exciting and unsettling situation.
