NORDLYS x P-NOiSE Vol 2
CHOREOGRAPHER, PERFORMER AND STAGING
The Nordlys Unicorns flew to Manila february 2019 and created three magical nights in collaboration with P-noise festival during Fringe Manila. We glued three performance nights together in different venues and outside sites, with themes related to the asian mythological creature; the unicorn. The unicorn has three main abilities that functioned as frames for the three performance nights; “cleansing powers”, “magic powers” and “healing powers”.
The three nights contained curated performances from the Nordic countries and the Philipines, experienced in the format of a walking performance, which is what Nordlys specializes in.
NORDLYS is a nordic collective by dance artists My Grönholdt (SE), Julie Rasmussen (NO) and Tine Østergaard (DK). They work as curators, artistic directors, choreographers, performers and they create site-specific walking performances with nordic dance artists.
Nordlys examines the Nordic identity and Nordic trends in culture and society and how they are reflected in our body and aesthetics. The walking performances are characterised by artists and the audience interacting with the performance site and explores space, art and dynamism that create a unique experience.
Nordlys creates a platform for dancers, artists and choreographers where they can expose their art and participate in networking across countries.
This is NORDLYS 4th production, where two have been in Copenhagen / Denmark and two in Manila / The Philippines.
