Dance Performance, 45'


The interactive dance performance Våga Vara (Daring Being) is built around a play with eye contact out of which movement ensues. Five dancers and two wheelchairs get in contact with each other and the audience through dance and ribbons.   

The piece starts with the dancers leading the audience one by one onto the dance floor, creating a room of shared experiences between dancers and audience. The dancers enter into a movement dialogue where personal boundaries are challenged. Each dancer develops movement on the spot, based on their individual movement ability and body language.

Våga Vara (Daring Being) invites the audience to discover beauty in imperfection and diversity. It strives to inspire everyone - no matter their perceived limitations - to dare to express themselves in movement, thus contributing with their unique quality to the dance.
