− Physical, playful, rhythmical with powerful expression, original music score, contemporary dance and five dancers.
The piece Eklektisk originated from Art Of Spectra’s dance residency in Alingsås County 2007. In 2008, the work toured throughout Västra Götaland.
-An atmosphere of subculture infuses the grey and foggy set. The backdrop’s bloodred worry is echoed in the dancers’ blurred mouths and as small fields on the grey costumes. A leather couch and the table with computers and cords summon the dancers for short breaks to catch their breaths. Otherwise the dance flows, like exposed bodies across the floor, like groups in unison stackato, or individuals in slow motion. Streetdance, martial arts and classical lines fuse – controlled energy with high risk factor.
