“Once, I crossed the atlantic ocean 4 times in 10 days. I woke up, not knowing where I was, dizzy, nauseous and un-coordinated. My feet were far from my head, my intestines still hovering over the ocean.”

GRÅTT is a choreographic work that derives from the experience of stress and how it affects us mentally and physically. The feeling of a lack of contact with the body. Whose arms are growing out of my shoulders? The audience is invited into a space where the dancing body is intertwined with an intense self-observation of the flesh, gradually finding a way back to where there is coherence.

About the performance

GRÅTT is a choreographic work about the experience of stress and how it affects us mentally and physically. The lack of contact with one’s body. The feeling of losing oneself and becoming a passive spectator to the outside world. The sensation that everything is gray and you are caught in an apathetic, numb body in a state of stress.

Whose arms are growing out of my shoulders?

The audience is invited into a space where the dancing body and music are intertwined into an intense introspection of the flesh – confronted with a body that gradually breaks the cycle between excitement and collapse.

“I once crossed the Atlantic 4 times in 10 days. I woke up in a bed, not knowing where I was, dizzy, with nausea. My feet were far away from my head and my guts still hovered over the sea. Since that kind of thing started happening to me and to those around me, I’ve been preoccupied with one of the most common problems of our time: Stress.”

– Choreographer Hilde Ingeborg Sandvold
