CHOREOGRAPHY • "Withdrawal" as performative concept •
NØRREBRO, DENMARK • 16th OF AUGUST, 2013
Social housing and attractive apartments, drug trafficking and elite parenting, nostalgic shops and subway construction sites, romantic urban gardens and gentrification on speed. VI [we] is a walk for the masses through the outer Nørrebro area of Copenhagen. A guide leads us through the evening city, in and out of a staged reality. We are alone and we are together. 6 artists have created four unique performances for the route. The works are created specifically for the site and for us who make up the VI of the city.
Ilinx is a mobile platform which creates projects with different artists and researchers in different urban environments. Each time Ilinx focuses on a theme and invite people to reflect about this theme through the creation of a collective work. The first project VI (WE) was been developed with the choreographers Ida-Elisabeth Larsen & Marie-Louise Stentebjerg and focused on mass-phenomenon.
Ilinx is a kind of play which creates a temporary disruption of perception, as with vertigo, dizziness, or disorienting changes in direction of movement.
