Requirements to venue
In Most Wanted Nils Jacob Johannesen mixed the discipline of the athlete with the artist’s lack of compromise through an imaginary ideal made of two heroes – the Afro American boxer Muhammad Ali and the Japanese dance of Butoh’s father Tatsumi Hijikata.
In the program of Black Box Teater one could read the following about Most Wanted:
"From this dream image, in the range between similarities and differences, starts a tangible search for the essence of the hero. The hero of the performance searches for authenticity and fights to keep his ideal alive, while he is transformed into a hero through challenges, defeats, facing himself and new worlds."
Most Wanted was the first full-length choreography by Nils Jacob Johannesen.
Most Wanted was supported by Arts Council Norway and The Audio Visual Fund.
