Fragment - Recension, Barometern

Explosiv dans om mörka minnen

DANS

Fragment
Av: Art of Spectra
Koreografi och musik: Peter Svenzon
Dansare: Zacharias Blad, Ulriqa Fernqvist, Joakim Envik Karlsson
Scen: Byteatern i Kalmar

Våra livsberättelser är uppbyggda av minnen. Men vad minns vi av allt som vi varit med om? Och hur minns vi?
Minnena både gäckar oss och jagar oss. En del vill vi helst glömma, men kan inte. Andra önskar vi att vi kunde framkalla ur glömskans gömslen.
Men även om vi inte är medvetna om våra minnen, så lever de ändå kvar i våra kroppar. Det blir så tydligt i Art of Spectras mångfacetterade dansföreställning Fragment, som på lördagen visades på Byteaterns scen i Kalmar. I ett grafiskt collage av rörelse, ljud, ljus, rörliga bilder och tal gestaltar de tre dansarna bland annat sina egna och ensemblens minnen. Eller fragment av minnen, rättare sagt, en bild som flimrar förbi, en vag förnimmelse, några ord utan direkt sammanhang, en stark fysisk känsla som plötsligt dyker upp utan att man riktigt förstår varför. Som i en dröm.
Fragment är den sista delen i trilogin I remember, där koreografen Peter Svenzon utforskar minnet. Här har han arbetat parallellt med olika konstnärliga uttryck och skapat ett helgjutet multikonstverk. Dansarnas rörelser förstärks av ljud och musik, ljus, bilder och videoprojektioner som visas både på scengolvet och i fonden. Dansarna framför också berättelser på engelska, men tyvärr uppfattar åtminstone jag inte så mycket av vad de säger.
Med hjälp av en spännande ljussättning bildas hela tiden nya rum i scenrummet, kvadrater och rektanglar av ljus där dansarna rör sig, ensamma och inneslutna i sina drömmar eller minnen för att i nästa sekund överraska med att springa runt på scenen, lyfta varandra, hoppa på varandra, bråka och smekas.
Det är vackert, poetiskt, ömtåligt. Som när dansaren Ulriqa Fernqvist ligger ensam i en ljuskvadrat på scengolvet, och vrider kroppen för att försöka bli av med ett plågsamt minne. Men också våldsamt och explosivt, då minnena av andra obehagliga upplevelser exponeras.
De tre dansarna, barfota och klädda i T-shirt och byxor, imponerar stort med sin otroliga energi och fantastiska balansgång mellan behärskat minimalistiska och överraskande explosiva rörelser i en dans som har starka inslag av både breakdance och akrobatik. Även om man inte förstår allt med intellektet, blir man rent fysiskt berörd av föreställningen. Och ett fint minne rikare.

Revue - FRAGMENT - Barometern

Explosive dance on dark memories

DANCE

Fragment
By: Art of Spectra
Choreography and music: Peter Svenzon
Dancers: Zacharias Blad, Ulriqa Fernqvist, Joakim Karlsson Envik
Scene: Byteatern in Kalmar

Our life stories are composed of memories. But what we remember all that we've been through? And how do we remember?
The memories both eludes us and chase us. Some we would prefer to forget, but can not. Second, we wish that we could elicit from oblivion hides.
But even if we are not aware of our memories, so they still live on in our bodies. It becomes so clear in Art of Spectra's multifaceted dance performance Fragments, which on Saturday appeared on Byteaterns scene in Kalmar. In a graphic collage of movement, sound, light, motion and speech portrays the three dancers including his own, and the ensemble's memories. Or fragments of memories, rather, an image flicker past, a vague sensation, a word with no direct connection, a strong physical sensation that suddenly appears without really understanding why. As in a dream.
Fragments is the last part of the trilogy I remember, where the choreographer Peter Svenzon explores memory. Here he worked alongside various artistic expressions and created a seamless multi artwork. The dancers' movements are amplified sound and music, candles, pictures, and video projections that appear both on the stage floor and in the fund. The dancers in front also stories in English, but unfortunately perceive at least I'm not so much of what they say.
With the help of an exciting lighting formed constantly new place in the stage, squares and rectangles of light in which the dancers move, alone and trapped in their dreams or memories to the next second surprise running around the stage, lifting each other, jumping on another, brawling and caressed.
It's beautiful, poetic, fragile. Like when the dancer Ulriqa Fernqvist is alone in a bright square on the stage floor, and turn the body to try to get rid of a painful memory. But also violently and explosively, when memories of other unpleasant experiences exposed.
The three dancers, barefoot and dressed in T-shirt and pants, impresses with its incredible energy and great balance between restrained minimalist and surprisingly explosive movements in a dance that has strong elements of breakdancing and acrobatics. Even if you do not understand everything with the intellect, one becomes physically touched by the show. And a nice memory richer.

Art of Spectra gets Sten A.Olsson Foundation for Research and Culture AWARD for 2013.

Motivation

Art of Spectra is a modern, independent dance company with light, voice, music, video and performance as partners. Peter Svenzon and Ulriqa Fernqvist. He, dancer and choreographer, a music creator and visionary. She dancer with a technique and charisma, becoming the most part. Together they work on projects from small format to the really big picture. Within institutions as well as in self-produced works in explorations that take them to the border between contemporary dance, break dance and performance art with an almost breakneck technology.

The energy, to compromise the expression, the heat of the driving is immediately poignant. They depict young people´s searching, sometimes rough sometimes finely tuned always with total sense and seriousness. They depict life's various parcels with vulnerability and comedy. While one can note the equal relationship between the practitioners.
The result is energy strong and challenging total works of art with video, lighting experiments and specially composed music, usually by Peter himself. At Art of Spectra is the dance of life and death in this most self-disclosure and bare of art forms. For his artistically compelling and forward-looking creation is assigned Art of Spectra Scholarship for 2013 from Sten A. Olsson Foundation for Research and Culture.

Scholarship award will take place at the Concert Hall in Gothenburg on Wednesday 4 December at 18:00.
