How to create a modern dance group

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?

plötsligt tror man att allt är en dans förutom kanske de som står helt stilla jämt. 

tex haren springer slalom framför bilen i mörkret och man vill tro: den är på disco för den dansar till bilstereon och strålkastarljusets sken. Förmodligen är det ingen dans utan en skräckslagen dödssymfoni, typiskt för hararsläktet. 

suddenly you prefer to think everything is a dance, even the hare loves to dance, so called hare disco. /j

What defines dance and dance costume?

Every summer for the fifth time this year, I have this inspiration lecture
and workshops for design students specialising in costume design for
theater, opera and dance. The first three years was connected to opera.
This and the last year have been toward dance. But the course also nourish a wish for the people on stage to understand and
work with the costumes. To let the costume direct. I am very intrigued
by the act to lett your dress give you direction how to move.

Part of my interest in this show we will have on the 17 August How to create a modern dance group -I can’t believe it’s not sugar ! is
in everyday actions and movements turned in to dance or/and ritual. But
it´s not about turning everything in to everyday situations, it´s the
opposite. To turn this world in to a magical and mythical system of
aesthetics. Go wild go arty, go dancing even when no one else can se
that you are. Every crowd, every day on the bus to work and at work is
a day with magical movements.
