Choreography: Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui
Orbo Novo premiered in 2009 in a United States that was open to the world. Ten years later, the political climate has made the work’s exploration of polarised America increasingly relevant.
In 2019, we need a reminder of how the sense of freedom, confinement, solidarity and loneliness affects us. In its first all-night performance, dance company Nagelhus Schia Productions presents the contrast-filled work Orbo Novo, featuring choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
In the performance, the desire to come together is set up against the longing to break away and the times in which we live is set up against the past and future. Contrasts are scrutinised in light of 2009 America, a country full of hope, but a melancholic hope.
With physical and intricate choreography, complex music by Szymon Brzóska and text from ‘A Stroke of Insight’ by Jill Bolte Taylor, the dancers force their way through limitations and resistance. If the barriers cannot be removed, perhaps they can be moved.
Duration: 70 minutes, no intermission.
Promoter: Stavanger Concert Hall
