Cullberg Ballet meets Fotografiska and KammarensembleN
Cullberg, KammarensembleN och Fotografiska in co-operation.
Cullberg Ballet, KammarensembleN and Fotografiska collaborate in a new work, specially composed for Fotografiska. Musicians and dancers meet in this improvised work, based on the collaboration between the varying textures in dance, music and image. Five instrumental solo pieces from the 20th century form the basis and images from the photographer Fanny Oldenburg projected on the walls, create landscapes together with dance and music. The work is presented within the frame of Cullberg Out in context, the company’s site specific project that takes parts of the company’s activity out of its usual context to other settings than the traditional.
Sunday 6 May, Fotografiska at 13:00-14:00 and 15:00-16:00
