Dancing on the Oslo Fjord is Panta Rei's new venture, in which we make the fjord our stage in a series of dance promenades. Six young, professional dancers from the TILT Grow talent program each present a solo that they themselves have created in collaboration with acclaimed Norwegian choreographers.
The Gamle Oslo district presents a wonderful diversity of people and urban spaces. In partnership with the scenographer Liam Monzer Alzafari, we turn the heart of Gamle Oslo and the fjord into our stage. The production highlights and showcases the district's unique qualities, contexts, and contrasts. The journey through the district gives the audience a chance to join in and get to know local talents.
Scenography -Spatial Dramaturgy
Space exists when one looks at the variables of direction, velocities, and time variables. Thus space consists of intersections of moving elements.
Space occurs as an effect produced by the processes that direct them, set them up, make them temporary, and make them work in a polyvalent unit of conflicting programs or contractual approaches. Movement between solid and shacky surfaces and all the undecided operations happening in the public space that we can't control for the purpose of our performance, hence connecting the city to the concept never makes them identical, but it plays on their gradual coexistence and coexisting is the aim of this spatial arrangement.
We build our tactics over the city strategies until those tactics become our strategy, and then we hand the end to our audience to do their tactics over our strategy before they disembark the boats.
