Norwegian dance group turning heads in London

 Date:12/06/2007 - 13/06/2007
 Type:Culture, Performing Arts
 Location:England, London

The Turning World seasons of international dance at The Place, London, is back again and this time includes Norway’s acclaimed Zero Visibility Corp.

The Turning World seasons were responsible for introducing London to choreographers such as Anne Theresa de Keersmaeker, Wim Vandekeybus, Alain Platel and Sasha Waltz, but the season last ran in 1999. Having fixed international dance as part of London’s cultural landscape those artists are now big names in major theatres. Yet there’s another brave new world that’s grown up, waiting to be discovered. The Turning World returns from 8-30 June with new works by seven international choreographers - the authentically different one-offs who are largely unknown in London but who can bring us insights into other worlds. Amongst them is Zero Visibility Corp from Norway.

The nature of identity and attraction weave around an enigmatic central figure in Ina Christel Johannessen’s latest piece for her company Zero Visibility Corp. Calling on a movement style that carries echoes of martial arts acrobatics and contact improvisation, Johannessen casts one woman adrift and seemingly isolated in a sea of bearded men. Is she proud to be alone or fed up with being lonely? The truth lies somewhere in between as Johannessen constructs an intensely human scenario around an electronic soundscape that counterpoints the emotions at play.
