Norwegian Theatre Academy and Kasper Ravnhøj presents "GRAVITY" - a dance theater experience.
Gravity is a hardcore physical performance where the students are challenged by the driving force of gravitation. For 50 minutes the students will try to explain the laws of gravity of the universe.
In this production NTA's second year acting students will share the research on gravity they have been exploring with award winning director Kasper Ravnhøj of the Denmark based company Mute Comp. Through improvisation, exploring the limits of physical risk and dependency on human contact, students have been discovering the challenges of "just" being a body in relation to gravity, and working with momentum, force and rhythm as content. Audiences are invited to this presentation to witness the ongoing research. The experience is a theater of light, flesh, and kinetic energy in space.
A dance theater experience
"A performance by Kasper Ravnhøj is a dance theater experience in the intersection of dance, live music, performance, hardcore physicality and slam poetry - often with comic relief added to the mix. The work reflects Ravnhøj's eclectic worldview and his personal fascination with modern man's excellent ability to stumble and fall. On the basis of contemporary culture (and often with a political or socially critical backdrop) his work revolves around some recurring themes; existence, mythology, religion, the human drive and the dark sides of life."
