Avgang 2022: Imitating Realness
Imitating RealnessImitating Realness is Hanna Våge Skjeggestad’s graduation project in Master Dance.
Imitating Realness is a solo where play with imitation establishes a common reality between performer and audience. It is a performance that physically explores human and animal movement, through acquiring different movement logics and through this tries to create dissonance in the audience's perception of the dancer's performance. By working with imitation and small shifts of perspective, the performance reflects on the relationship between nature and culture.
In Imitating Realness Våge Skjeggestad wishes to create a constant change of the audience perception. The interest lays in not jumping to conclusions about one’s surroundings, but rather observing the floating transitions.
