Mountains

by Jefta van Dinther

After creating two large scale productions for Cullberg the past years, Jefta van Dinther returns to the company as an associated artist (2019-2022) to create two new works. First out is Mountains, a collaborative solo work with dancer Suelem de Oliveira da Silva. Premiere spring 2021.

As human beings, we are perpetually haunted by our own implication in the nature-culture bind. Our unease is addressed downwards and upwards at the same time: to the unearthing of the ground as well as to the shrinking of the limitless sky. In Mountains, Van Dinther tackles the question of how to be and stay in love with our ever-changing world. Through an expulsion of words, both familiar and foreign, the performer on stage acts as a conduit, reveling, lamenting and ranting on behalf of others. Her being unravels in the nexus between the physical, biological and anthropological – between gravitational forces, instinct and desire.
