Choreographer Lise Nordal marks her 40thyear as a coreographer with a dance alive percussion piece featuring newly composed music by frequent collaborator Kjell Samkopf, performed live.
Based on the occult practice of numerology, V takes its starting point in the modern day secret codes of identity numbers and personal names. Structure, complexity, architecture, repetition, reversal, elimination and differentiation are the keywords in a performance that brings out the natural, inbuilt rhythms of dancers’ bodies, the four elements, and the magical power of geometric shapes. V is composed like a piece of music, sharing with the best Scandinavian design a sense of simplicity, clean lines and functionality.
