Quote from the festival program:
«ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Monica Emilie Herstad: Ibsen and Dance
Sketches for Spring solo performance
Touring the world with her awardwinning Ibsen-related performances, Monica Emilie Herstad will at Schouskollektivet Extended direct a workshop, based on literature vs. movement. The theme is expected to be: How can we read a text from a perspective of physicality and its options? Can the one replace the other, why and why not? are questions being asked here. With practical exercises we will step into some of these paths together, in this Ibsenian context Oslo, anno 2018.
More info about Herstay’s solo performance here:
She will also perform her solo Sketches for Spring on day 2 at 3.30 pm: The performance Sketches for Spring, solo, is situated in nature or urban scenary, focusing on the anthropocene of our times. Relating to the longlasting of the temporary, continuance as a mantra would be one theme. The performer ́s movements can be seen as ”discussing” the humble human role, in a universe capable of continuing on its own.
Thus the performance reminds us of the importance of a more eternal human existence, being aware of our singular and collective responsability, in order to achieve a state of permanence.
