Welcome to Young Choreographers – The Festival 2017. We invite you to take part in 4 exciting days with performances by young choreographers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Greece, and Belgium, alongside a full program of classes, workshops, and events. Come and get surprised, inspired, moved, challenged, intrigued or provoked and explore works by a brand new generation of choreographers.

We have curated the performances from four different themes:
New kids on the block – brand new pieces, graduate performances and new choreographers
Release me from tradition – performances seeking new ways of working with genres, narratives and/or aesthetics
Dancetopia – performances working with utopia as a theme
No time like the present – performances displaying a critical view on today's society

Each day you can experience two different performance blocks and get to meet the artists in networking events after each block.

Young Choreographers – The Festival aims to connect performers across borders and communities and to serve as a platform for young artists to show their work and share their visions for dance and choreography. Young Choreographers is an ongoing platform at HAUT, which took place for the first time in 2015.

KLAKØR
Choreographer Runa Norheim and Scenographer Ida Grimsgaard will open the festival’s performing program by making an opening ceremony concerning group dynamics. Claqueurs will lead the audience through an experience and the brand-new building, kicking off the festival with several applauds to come. Claquers/Klakør is an organized body of professional applauders, which was a common way to educating ones audience in classical times. We look forward to let you experience this phenomenon in a contemporary setting and let this lead you further into this year’s festival program. The project is supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

LET'S NOT PRETEND TO BE ALONE HERE
Let’s not pretend to be alone here is a physical performance embodying a collective togetherness through different patterns of movement, bodily states, and images. The bodies on stage are morphed from sculptures, into machinery, human subjects, landscapes, and soundscapes. Let’s not pretend to be alone here seeks to create new universes and understandings of collectiveness. The performers are recent graduates from The Danish National School of Performing Arts and we are really happy to present these newest and most talented Kids on the block.
Performers: Emilie Gregersen (DK), Riikka Laurilehto (DK), Rebecka Berchtold (DK), Naya Moll (DK) in collaboration with Johanne Østervang (DK) Performance duration: 25 min.

RANUNCULUS
She looks at you, she dances for you - and you ask yourself: “Is she for real? Is it okay for me to look at her?”
Danielle Eriksson moves in the border land between full control and bad behavior and invites you to participate in a dreamlike universe of desires, fantasies, contrasts, and beats. We look forward to presenting this “new kid on the block”, with her fast shifting, intimate and unpredictable solo, where anything can happen.
Choreographer and Performer: Daniella Eriksson (SE) Performance time: 25 min.

 

DANCING SHAKESPEARE LIVE: MACHBETH ACT 1, SC.5
Dancing Shakespeare transforms traditional Shakespearean texts into short dance films. The film is then extended outside of the screen when the performer, who is situated in the room, continues the dancing live. We are happy to present for you Macbeth Act 1, sc. which transforms our assumption of what a dance performance can be.
Choreographer: We:R performance collective (Rebecca Björling (SE) and Rebecca Rossier (GB) Performer: Rebecca Björling (SE) Performance duration: 10 min.

TO SEE YOURSELF FROM THE OUTSIDE
In To see yourself from the outside two performers establish a system of verbalizing movements. The observing one defines the one being observed. To see yourself from the outside questions the traditional separation between talking and dancing, and the relationship between language and movement. The performance seems to ask who, how and what defines the self and the other.  At the same time, it unfolds a particular attention to the relationship between body and mind and the physical effects of language. What comes first, speech or action?
Choreographers and Performers: Hugo Hedberg (SE) & Karen Eide Bøen (NO) Performance duration: 35 min.

LIKE
We spend less and less time on each individual and more time on mass communication. In our digital time, everything around us seeks to satisfy our ever-growing desire for fast communication by providing us with images and shortcuts, that substitute the gestures and facial expressions. Like explores the digital communication of today and investigates how to translate the digital language into a bodily expression. In Like we see a “dancetopian” wish to express and interpret both the present and the future, and we look forward to welcoming you to experience emojis, likes and sharings on the floor by this upcoming duo.
Choreography and performance: Rasmus Blad Bjørkvad (DK) and Jeppe Kaas Vad (DK) Performance duration: 45 min.

BEYOND COLLAPSE
A group of young people tries to build their own utopia, without knowing that their efforts take place under circumstances extremely controlled. Will they find a way, or are they trapped in a strictly tainted environment?
Beyond Collapse poses several questions. What does utopia consist of? Is it a memory, or is it a desire for a better future? Is it possible to create a collective hope for a new world with the codes, movements, materials, and symbols of today’s society?
We welcome this performance as a “dancetopian” project that alternates between the dystopian closure and the utopian hope.
Concept and Choreography: Evi Souli (GR) Performers: Katerina Foti (GR), Christiana Kosiari (GR), Bilio Marneli (GR) Original Music Composition: Pavlos Pavlidis (GR) Set design: Marilena Georgantzi (GR) Costume design: Angeliki Kotroni (GR) Dramaturgy consulting: Panos Topsidis (GR) Light Design: Panagiotis Manousis (GR) Production: Stereo Nero DanceCo. (GR) Performance duration: 20 min.

SOLUS
Solus is a short dance film that questions the striving for perfection, uniformity and streamlining. Solus wishes to address a debate on the aims and ideals of modern society with an experiment that takes current tendencies to the extreme. Solus serves as the latest in a series of artistic comments on society by Danish choreographer Simone Wierød, who uses her choreographic practice as a tool to understand and debate the present time.
Choreography: Simone Wierød (DK) Cinematography: Tim Panduro (DK) Performance: Anna Stamp Møller (DK) Performance duration: 5 min.

PEOPLE
“People have an inlaid feeling that they have the ability to predict the future, or if they see patterns they have a built in feeling that they’re meaningful, and a built in feeling that they can control things.”  
– Leonard Mlodinow. In People, the dancers experiment with a movement based take on people's urge for knowing and predict the future. The performance investigates how people unconsciously want to assign meaning to random behavior, and how we read coincidences in the present as a pattern for the future. We look forward to presenting this piece.

Choreography: Ingvild Isaksen (NO) Performers: Julie Rasmussen (NO) and Ingvild Isaksen (NO) Sound score edit: Ingvild Isaksen (NO) Performance duration: 14 min.

ZEMIATA
In a world of conflict, ZEMIATA seeks to bring us closer to our human nature; to our inner ritual. ZEMIATA investigates the significance of being a part of a ritual in today’s society and interprets the social and emotional aspects evolving in a group of people, who shares the same faith and the same beliefs. ZEMIATA gives us new perspectives on the global world we live in and embodies the ritual aspect of today’s society.
Concept and Choreography: Youri De Gussem (BE) Performance: Francesca Chiodi Latini (IT), Youri De Gussem (BE), Julie Querre (FR), Anna Senognoeva (RU/BE) Music: Michaël Denis (BE) Performance duration: 45 min.
