Nanna Stigsdatter, Snorre Elvin
pour it

pour it is a riverine dance performance and stream of friendships and shorelines portraits. A piece that floats between ecosystems, lingers by bodies of water, and dances with ever-changing aspects of love.

pour it is an extension of the piece drivtømmer (eng. driftwood) from 2019 and continues the inquiry into intimacy, watery habitats, and thresholds. The work circulates around transformations and portals – choreographic actions that serve as portals into other stages of being, the possibility of assuming the shape of the other and giving in to transformation.

pour it and drivtømmer are echoes of many years of friendship and dances.

Nanna and Snorre met at the Danish School for Performing Arts in 2011 and have been working together since, in a variety of constellations, one of which being the dance collective Danseatelier.
