New Sh*t Vol. 5

New Sh*t – a vigorous flick off tomorrow´s dance.

Andreas Haglund is the guest curator of Dansehallernes popular platform New Sh*t Vol. 5 and has with three performances put together a tapestry of sensations. We are thrilled this evening to present works by Adam Seid Tahir & Amina Seid Tahir, Beck Heiberg and Thjerza Balaj.

The program for New Sh*t Vol. 5

The evening will bring three solo works.

several attempts at braiding my way home / Adam Seid Tahir & Amina Seid Tahir

Shifting between labor and speculative proposals ”several attempts at braiding my way home” insists on fiction as a tool for quaking potential and finding opportunities for recovery and belonging. The performance swims with the Clymene dolphins who defy understandings of heritage. It listens to the walruses who trust their hair for navigation. ”several attempts at braiding my way home” is a collection of strategies for creating home in an afro-nordic landscape. Braiding hair, fusing bones, growing fins. It is a heatwave and a longing for home.

Blue Swallowings / Beck Heiberg

Cry for me. Care for me so much that you fuck me. Use my tears as lube. Let the swallow scream. Subdued swallowing. Swallow my feelings. Blue Swallowings is Beck Heiberg’s new solo work suggesting a space where sexy is sad and sadness is sensual, a place where the sorrow is a turn-on. Moving with the pain and letting the heat rise and melt in a pool of sultry sadness, the body holds a space for this new meeting. In the cry we hold you. One on each arm. In the cry we meet you. With our own tears.

Ruzalka / Thjerza Balaj

Her main purpose is 
the depths of waterways 
where she would entangle their feet with her long red hair 
and submerge them.

The program of the evening will be approx. 2 hours and 40 minutes with intermissions.

DJ Nah Care will deliver good vibes for the intermissions and after the performances where we invite you for a hangout.
