TA TILL DANS
During three months 2021, Daniella Eriksson met individually with forty people in Dalarna to discuss what dance is to them. The participants shared their personal stories, their way of dancing, & donated dance moves, videos, music, costume, dramaturgical, compositional & scenographic ideas to the creation of this performance.
Ta Till Dans is an attempt to make a personal kind of sense out of the different perspectives on what dance is & can be today. Although it contains what the participants of the project hold to be crucial components of dance - music, bodies, feelings & the intention to inspire an audience to move - it is not about any of these parts, it is a dance with them.
