Avgang 2017: Soft command

Avgang 2017: Soft command

To see and be seen as long as we are linguistic beings.
Karen Eide Bøen er avgangsstudent ved master koreografi. Forestillingen er andre del av hennes todelte avgangsprosjekt.

In the two works that result from my master project I do not escape my interest in power, the relationship between body and mind, nor my fascination+- with the physicality of sound and physical effects of language. Trying to work with sound as materialised movement in space, language made itself present and the voice turned out to be strong enough to manifest another layer of movement.

“Soft Command”

Performer: Alessandra Ruggeri /
Choreographer: Karen Eide Bøen

A woman opens the door and enters the room. When you enter a performance the situation is such that the performer knows more than you. Will you trust her? A woman opens the door and leaves the room. Will you follow her?

“To see yourself from the outside”

Makers and performers: Hugo Hedberg and Karen Eide Bøen

When you described how I cut the vegetables and my movements in the kitchen, I initially experienced it as just a voice in the background. But after a while it transitioned into a feeling of power. You could foresee how I would cut the vegetables, and it felt like you were instructing me.
