Sindri Runudde – Delight House and the Dark Room

Five dancers examine audible dances and choreography with sound and listening as methods.

In Delighthouse and the Dark room, the audience is invited into a new dimension in a collage of practises, metaphors, dances, games, stories and pop cultural references in a wave of melancholic states. Five dancers examine audible dances and choreography with sound and listening as methods.

Through synesthetic starting points the show challenges what can express a personal experience and be a dancing language. In collaboration with composer Markus B. Almqvist Sindri experiments with audible dances, and how music and sound can be a primary source for choreography and the perception of dance.

Starting from a lighthouse as a metaphor for the body, and the state between its capacity to both guide and warn, the four dances examine the space between what can be both a blessing and a curse. The performance meets darkness with humor, and suggests new ways to approach your melancholy.
