Viktor Fröjd “Var dag”
Street dancers in a series of intense solos
Welcome to a space for dance and community with enchanting improvisations and choreographers challenging one another. A performance bursting with the vibrating presence of a space full of electric bodies – a space where everything can begin.
Var dag is a mix between performance and community. The audience is invited to participate in a room that is a party, a creative process and a social space. A group of dancers with a background in different styles of street dance performs a series of solos where everyone is constantly working with and helping each other, without actually dancing together.
How do you create dance that is honest – dance that is born from the place where you are, takes in the present and really faces its audience? How do you relate to a dance culture that values “authenticity”, but at the same time is expected to perform lust, happiness and community in specific ways?
In street dance the audience is traditionally standing in a circle around the dancers, contributing with their energy and is facing the other visitors. Together they create a cluster that watches over the spark that ignites on the dancefloor. In Var dag we invite you feel that glowing heat in the room, both up close and from a distance.
