MA Choreography 22: Hugo Hedberg - A Figure and Its Other Stories

A dance performance, a book and a concert.

A figure is living in a real world. It goes about its day and tries to live a normal life. But occasionally it sinks into other worlds where time, space and sensing functions differently. In these worlds it can find itself in a gut looking for a beat, being stuck in a two-dimensional ritual, grinding juice or falling into foam. These peculiar cosmoses are often filled with music which guides and supports the figure. Along the way it meets other figures and friends that eventually become an integral part of its story.  

The work will be presented in three parts: a dance performance, a book and a concert.
