Anders Christiansen (DK) + Generación Del Ayer (CHL)
Are only young people allowed to dance? On September 16th to 18th Bora Bora challenges dance as a youth glorification with a Chilean-Danish themed evening where experience and history are the focus.
Experienced and noble bodies and life poetry meet myths, magic realism and history when Danish Anders Christiansen and Chilean Generación Del Ayer takes the Bora Bora stageon a double bill on the 16th to 18th of September. This is the only opportunity the public has to see the two performances MULD (Soil) and FACES AND TRACES together.
The Chilean dancers Carmen Aros and Sonia Uribe are both over 70 years old and in their performance they pay tribute to strong women – including Frida Kahlo. The music is Chilean classical music, as well as the music of Brahms.
Anders Christiansen – just turned 50 – comes with his new solo work, which has music by Jørgen Teller. MULD focuses on the past as an underlying energy that rumbles beneath the surface. He asks: Can history be felt if you really look for it?
In the two performances, the audience will experience strong personalities and integrity. Generational art as a beautiful counterpoint to the dance as youth glorification. In the break between the two parts of the evening film clips of modern dance performed by experienced bodies will shown in your foyer Headquarters.
