Bouncing Narratives is a jumbled mess—a playful wash of images, sounds, and movements that elicits the fine line of pure joy and trauma narratives. It centers around a trauma that cannot be expressed in words, but bounces back again and again. Using minimal and repetitive vocabulary, bouncing and sliding, nuances of rhythm and speed become the main components of a performative act that animates the installation and drives towards a trance-like intensity.
Bouncing Narratives is a performance installation consisting of a container with a trampoline as a roof. The audience is invited to see the performance from below – from the inside of the container – or from the outside – in the urban landscape.
Bouncing Narratives is presented by Dansehallerne and is a selected Aerowaves piece. The tour is organized by Dansehallerne because we are Aerowaves partners.
The tour is supported by The Danish Arts Council and Creative Europe.
