After a long lockdown, our homes have taken on a new meaning and for most of us it has been a safe space and a prison at the same time. What constitutes a home? What makes a space a home? Is it the roof over our heads, the photo albums, the people we surround ourselves with? How are these questions and thoughts transferred to dance and choreography and what is the role of the audience in the final performance?
The modern dance company Corpus examines these questions with their performance Corpus Episodes: Home #2, which is made in collaboration with Swedish choreographer Frederic Gies and Danish artist Christian Falsnaes.
Frédéric Gies lives in Sweden and works with composition and chaos as equal forces in their desire to let dance speak for itself.
Christian Falsnaes is a Danish artist who works within the field of performance and graduated from Akademie der Bildende Künste, Vienna. His work touches on themes of identity, authority, participation and power. He often involves the audience in his works as co-creators of situations, pictures or videos.
After sold-out performances of Corpus Episodes: Home #2 in A-salen, site-specific performances on Ofelia Plads in Copenhagen, the performance will be given new life as it becomes part of Summer Days.
