Sindri Runudde “The Fishing Dance and Other Cosmic Confessions”

Aerobics turned into everyday healing

Step into a universe of movements inspired by Jane Fonda, radio workouts and fish biology, where music and dance float together into an ocean of healing, joyful choreographies for body and soul.

The Fishing Dance and Other Cosmic Confessions is a conceptual album and workout program consisting of seven different dances with specific purposes. With five dancers on stage, the seven songs intertwine with music and personal stories.

It is a tribute to movement that encourages the nourishing potential of dance and movement in metaphorical confessions full of fabulousness. Powered by “radical pedagogy”, Sindri Runudde works from the premise that everybody has knowledge and experience, and every story owns a dance.

The project works with several formats in parallel, questioning which dance is being danced and where, and who gets to experience it. In one-to-one meetings, Sindri prescribes different dances as possible cures for specific symptoms or problems.

Another format is an accompanying workout program, that is now presented as a stage performance. Together, they form The Fishing Dance and Other Cosmic Confessions.

The audience will not be participating in the workout.

The performance will tour spring 2019 within the Slingan tour network at Dansstationen Malmö the 26-27th of March, at Atalante in Gothenburg the 25t-26th of April and at MDT in Stockholm the 5-6ht of June.
