A wandering through the city of Copenhagen using video, aerial work and physical investigation. By: Esther Wrobel & Malene Nielsen
THE UNIVERSAL POSITION
‘Forestillinger’ is a short comical performance consisting of two dancers, two costume changes, two masks, an easel and an elaborate explanation of the performance and its underlying structure.
- a conjunction of physical gestures inspired by the vast world of filmed musicals. When performed, the position attempts to add sparkles of stardust to average living. You may look upon it as an injection of love or my attempt to say hello. To prepare you for the show, I invite you to hum along with Irene Caras “What a Feeling”:
The performance “Crust” invites its audience on a journey through urban space in the darkest hours of night. The shadow of a body takes us through forgotten spaces, empty architectural monuments and office buildings of Copenhagen. We explore and breathe in the atmosphere of the empty streets, tunnels and objects during our wandering.

What happens to us and our understanding of a work of art when everything is explained beforehand? Can it still be surprising? The Danish title ‘Forestillinger’ is apt, as it can mean performance, or impression, as well as imagination. Club Fisk’s work is characterised by a liberating sense of humour together with a good dose of classic Scandinavian minimalism.

First, when there’s nothing but a slow glowing dream That your fear seems to hide deep inside your mind All alone I have cried silent tears full of pride In a world made of steel, made of stone Well I hear the music, close my eyes, feel the rhythm Wrap around, take a hold of my heart [Chorus:] What a feeling, bein’s believin’ I can’t have it all, now I’m dancin’ for my life Take your passion, and make it happen Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life Concept and performance: Inge Agnete Tarpgaard • Video: The Steve Kelly and Inge Agnete Tarpgaard Supported by: Initiativpuljen – Aarhus Kommune, • Junge Hunde Aarhus and Scenekunstudvalgets Aktualitetspulje.

JUNGE HUNDE 09 The Junge Hunde Network is based on 15 of Europe’s most progressive theatre houses. The objectives of the network are to help and nourish young emerging artists from the alternative performing arts, to develop talent, and to create a platform for the new generation of artists, nationally and internationally. Through the 15 years the Junge Hunde Network has existed, many initiatives have been made, such as festivals, artists in residence and exchange programs. In Denmark, we have been arranging Junge Hunde festivals since 2001 - the last few years intensely focusing on international networking and creative feedback. We see these focus points as the fundamental basis for young and independent artists. The feedback of the audience, for example, other than just applauses is a very necessary part of the young artists’ learning process. The next Junge Hunde festival is taking place in Aarhus, November 2010. Deadline for application is 15th of Feburary 2010. Check out the website www.jungehunde.dk for information on previous festivals in Denmark, and www.entrescenen.dk/jungehunde for application information. Junge Hunde show case is supported by Kunstrådets scenekunstudvalg, Nordisk kulturfond, Århus Kommune, Augustinus Fonden and Region Midtjylland.
JUNGE HUNDE COURT
STRENGTH THROUGH EMBARRESSMENT
A SECTION OF FALLING
A performance stands accused. Now the audience must act as witnesses and jury as two lawyers present their cases in front of a judge. These are the ingredients in our feedback program, The Junge Hunde Court. We present a new way of discussing a performance; a way that is funny, direct, effective and uncompromising. Here at K15 we will make a demonstration of our concept. You are all invited to attend the court 25th of June at 16.00 in TuT. The performance on trial is “Strength Through Embarressment”, and it will be shown on the 24th at 21.40 in TuT. You will get the most out of the court if you have seen the performance in advance
Everyone has experienced embarrassing moments, but for some people these embarrassing moments are so closely knit that they become a continuous state of being. It´s uncomfortable and limiting, and sometimes the only way out of it is to get in and embrace it. In this psychosomatic thriller, you will encounter two female characters, the ever present Embarrassed Army and a calm rock band. It´s time to genuinely celebrate embarrassment.

The ungraceful act of falling. A Section of Falling is about the moment the body looses balance, just before the fall becomes a reality. It’s about this physical fall, about examining the physical possibilities by repeating the fall. A Section of Falling is a metaphor for life. Some people have to fall before they can get up, others fall on purpose, while most fall by accident. Rosalind Goldberg enjoys working with the odd, quaint positions and movements of the body. In this performance more speciﬁcally the awkward act of falling. Previously, she has had an entire cast dancing while crouching throughout a performance. The piece is created for the dancers Sandra Lolax and Stina Nyberg and was part of the Junge Hunde Festival 2008 and TANZTAGE BERLIN 2009. During 2009 it will tour in the Nordic countries, Germany and Russia. The production is funded by: Swedish Arts Grants Committee and Nordic Culture Fund
