Liva Xamanek Lopez about her curation:
”New Sht Vol. 4 presents five choreographers, who each in their way tells stories that speak to both brain and heart.
The choreographers are all actively engaged in dance communities, and with their extraordinary drive, they manage to make an artistic impact.
My wish with this curation is that the audience will feel the drive and energy flowing from the stage.”

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCES
Awakening | Abya Yala – Afrik & Arcturuz | 15 minutes
Among the human process of self-knowledge, on the way to our interior, we go through different stages of spiritual recognition of the state of mind, thoughts, and unity with the multiverse to achieve our individual awakening, between denial and acceptance of our nature.
Through dynamic body movements, the public will be introduced to those emotions that many of us had, have or will experience through this path at some point in our lives.
Dance and choreography: Abya Yala – Afrik & Arcturuz
Anastasija Olescuka | Part Time Robot | 10 minutes
Serving as a phone call girl trapped in the madness of the digital world and mathematic calculations. Social media and chat boxes, in a retro-futuristic universe, sci-fi inspired. Playing with boundaries between mechanic and organic, human, and robotic, satisfying, and destructive.
“Hello, how can I help you? Digital world. Automatic.
Put your hands on the screen, push the button and make things move faster than the light. Measure your importance and the significance of your life in the clicks of other people’s digital devices…
You have dialed a wrong number…”
Choreography, dance, lights: Anastasija Olescuka
Music: created by Yo Akim Hejle
Mia Kingo & Nora Massisimo | Between chains | 25 minutes
Six dancers are all connected by one chain. Embodying the obscure relation between freedom & boundedness, they are seeking a way to break through the chain.
BETWEEN CHAINS is based on steps and expressions from the commercial genre, which is known from live shows, movies, commercials, music videos etc. It combines various popular styles and creates a unique synchronized expression. The commercial genre originated in Los Angeles with inspiration from Jazz Dance added a more funky, edgy, and lyrical touch. Thus, Jazz Funk was created. Subsequently, other subgenres were created, and they are now all part of the category commercial.
Choreography: Nora Massisimo & Mia Kingo.
Dancers: Hannah Hviid, Anna Hvingel, Michael Hammerbo, Emma Annfeldt,
Patricia Sherpa, Freja Bjerregaard.
Musik mix: Marvin Spahi
