I can't believe it's not sugar !

Fyra konstformer träffades för att skapa en dansföreställning. Dansaren föll bort.

Författaren Linn Hansén, musikern Christoffer Berg och konstnären Fredric Gunve presenterar I can't believe it's not sugar – how to create a modern dance group,
en dansföreställning där konflikten – eller överenskommelsen – mellan närvaro och frånvaro av dans gestaltas på scen.
Utifrån sina respektive expertkompetenser arbetar de sig under sommaren fram till föreställningens uruppförande på Röhsska museet, Göteborg, Love love / Dans- och teaterfestivalen
den 17 augusti 2008, kl 19:00, och svarar då på frågan: Vad är dans?

INTRO

1. En
tankens dans kan vara vad som krävs efter en lång dag på
jobbet

– dance generally refers to movement of the body.
Dance
generally refers to movement of the body, usually rhytmic and to
music. Dans
är vad som kommer sedan. Dans kan också ske mellan djur.
Även vinden dansar. En tankens dans kan vara vad som krävs
efter en lång dag på kontoret.

2.
To
be fit for dance, all the aspects mentioned in this chapter are
essential

– dancer, dance teacher, dance sport coach, dance therapist,
choreographer.
Städare,
påklädare, elektriker.
Även enskilda aktörer kan turnera världen runt. Folkdans har dansats av vanligt folk. Det är svårt att tala friktionsfritt om fritidsintressen.
To be fit for dance, all the aspects mentioned in this chapter are essential. What is required is a balance of exercise, training in skills, rest and relaxation and an adequate diet. You are what you eat. A chocolate bar? If you wish to improve your co-ordination in dance training, then cut out the junk food and settle for the fish.

3.
Wear
a knee-length dress with elaborate hemlines

– prova en väst.
The dancers often perform in bare feet. Sometimes the dividing line between performer and the audience may become blurred. Deltagande demokrati. Att efter föreställningen ta sig ett glas.
How to dance: Wear dark, neutral colored slacks.


4.
Kroppen
är fortfarande scenen, slipsen dansaren och huvudet publiken

– learn how an unhappy facial expression can be corrected.
Det
får inte pågå för alltid. En starttid och en
slutpunkt måste utses och respekteras. Det måste vara ett
specifikt rum eller åtminstone inte överallt. Det måste
råda konsensus kring att det är föreställning.

5.
Stand
like you normally would, facing your partner

Det
som står kvar nu har vi valt att kalla Fundamentet. När
man smeker motpartens kind och viskar ”uppgjort”. Dansare känns
igen på att de är hela och rena. Dansare lever i flera år.

Performance
can take place at someone’s house, or even at a dollar store.
Talent,
on the other hand, is subjective.

SORTI

Contemporary
Dance
is the name given to a group of
20th century concert dance forms. It is a collection of systems and
methods developed from Modern and Postmodern dance, thus contemporary
dance is not a specific dance technique. Australian, European,
Canadian and American contemporary dance differ from each other in a
number of ways.[citation needed]

For the camera

How to create a modern dance g Posted on Sun, August 03, 2008 10:39:43

We are to make a show out of the material the three of us have collecting
about dance. It´s all very subjective and private. But it will contain
the feeling for what dance can be. For me it is to enter a new realm, a
world of body movements according to new and unexplored rules.

To make this come real and get the show going I believe we have to be
open and transparent . We must show our search toward the answer What
is DANCE. We must do this even on stage.

//–>This is one night after work. I spent the
night in a small guest room my work provide for occasion’s like this. I
spent my evening trying out privet dances for me and the camera.

This is one of them. If they “are about” something, I must say that
would be about being and feeling after a long day at work. To get it
out of the system maybe.

Think if this body behaviours were to be standard after work, on buses,
trams and in the metro after the work day. All commuters shaking of the
stiffness of the day before going home.
