In the fall 2020 I designed a concept for the cultural NGO Swinging Europe, located in Herning, Jylland, called The Dancer Revisiting. The project was the second project under the concept of Kunstneren på Genvisit. My role was the artistic leader of the project and vocalist at the live performance.
In The Dancer Revisiting three professional dancers from Holstebro Dance Company would visit local kindergardens and schools, and play with the children using their natural talent for improvising as dancers. The meetings with the children gave the dancers a lot of inspiration and things to reflect on, and became the foundation of a live performance later the same week.
The project was in-between Covid-19 lockdowns in Denmark, but some restrictions was still active, there the project had to be designet to fit with the restrictions of the time. Because of this, it wasn’t possible to create a public showing of the live performance, which was to conclude the project. Instead we recorded the performance live in one-take improvisations in the gallery-in-a-forrest called Deep Forrest Artland – Skovsnogen.
