Fallen Behind Meis choreographed by Christopher Arouni. Fallen Behind Me is a dance piece for three female dancers exploring movement, time and precision. The movement – the length of it, the beginning, the end, the different directions, the spatiality, the force, the sudden change in the movement, and then time is slowed and the end dissolved.

Horizontal Planes is a choreography by Heine Røsdal Avdal. Horizontal Planes springs out from the idea about how we can exist within horizontal power structures as opposed to hierarchic power structures. Each and every one of us room several layers of references and sources confirming that we are results of a collective. From this context this question is posed: How the dancer as an individual can be dissolved in new floating, expanding and diverse units.

The choreography Borboleta is made by the duo Kristin Hjort Inao & Yoshifumi Inao. Borboleta is about constant awakening. The awakening needed to experience the moment. About giving in and allowing the incalculable entrance, and a transformation and constant renewal; like movement from place to place.
