Tumbling into the space after sadness, Lowlands is a soft lament to the subliminal. Journeying into the sunken valleys of slowed down motions, it breathes into the space between fragility and strength. The audience is invited into a meditative landscape of blue that lulls and endures. Images emerge evoking a body falling apart and gathering itself together again, a body at sea and a body on a patchwork of waves.
Lowlands is a large-scale solo performance by choreographer Emilia Gasiorek that spans the deep blue depths of personal emotional landscapes and collective geographical environments. It is a part of a new body of work exploring how emotional and psychological states shape the matter of bodies and worlds. The piece is made in collaboration with choreographic consultant Emma-Cecilia Ajanki, sound artist Karis Zidore, and architect Lea Paulsen, and is co-produced by Dansehallerne.
