Score for a dance piece by Kim-Jomi Fischer & Marta Alstadsæter
Engel by Kim-Jomi Fischer and Marta Alstadsæter is a performance about inner struggle, decision-making and the metaphysical. Two performers, one a circus acrobat and one a dancer, melt together in a physical dialogue through a constant exchange of weight, momentum and direction.
Engel is inspired by the poetry of “Stof dat als een meisje” in which poet/writer Toon Tellegen describes a man who is haunted by an angel. The two performers ask themselves: Where are the angels of our time? Who is guiding us through the chaos of nowadays existence?
This is the second time I worked with Marta and Kim, after doing the music for the short piece As Much As It Is Worth
Engel premièred at the Festspillene I Nord-Norge festival in Harstad, Norway, June 2018.
