ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
SIMPLE MOVES, Three choreographies performed by Jens Bjerregaard
Choreographed by: Jou Odoru (JP), Maura Morales (CU), Jens Bjerregaard
Visual Artist: Naoko Tanako (JP)
Artistic Consultant: Geoliane Arab (LB)
Although rather metaphysical, the concept and movement composition of “Simple Moves” are of a biographical origin.Three collaborating artists were invited, each with one part of the performance. The collaborations reflect on important turning points in the life of Bjerregaard. They each bring a different angle to the work and challenge the dancer with new [Simple] moves. The encounter with the audience thus becomes not only with the dancer but also with the person.
Words from the Press:
“The body, some light and a few shadows were more than enough to slowly and wisely unveil the layers of the performer’s history, and reconstruct it again and again”
Mazen Maarouf, Annahar Newspaper (LB)
