June 22 – June 23
The rules of the game are simple. Like and be liked. Kill or be killed. Under the direction of choreographer Alan Lucien Øyen, Norway’s dance/theatre company winter guests attempts to deconstruct contemporary pathologies of need and narcissism.
Taking inspiration from the performer’s real-life experiences, solo work and group dynamics try to lay bare the brutal cost of social rituals. With an emphasis on the eloquence of pure dance, winter guests pose difficult questions about what it means to be free when every aspect of daily life is subject to constant scrutiny, manipulation and judgement.
