Again? What now? is a work specificly created for Weld Company autumn 2018. It is an amalgam of “old” dance excerpts and more recent ideas, including spoken texts, music, and movement configurations. You might call the piece “Yvonne Rainers Best Bits.” The actual title can also be read as a cry of desperation and protest in response to the fraught state of the world, and more specifically, the current calamitous social and political situation in the United States.

In a career-long concern with integrating and separating the influences of dance history and current events, Rainer’s work — from dance to film and back to choreography — reflects these sometimes irreconcilable poles of the aesthetic and the social. Ever hopeful, she begins again.

Performing in Again? What now?: Andrea Svensson, Noah Hellwig, Marie Fahlin, Robin Dingemans, Anna Westberg, Kajsa Sandström, Sybrig Dokter, Per Sacklén and Max Wallmeier.

October 30 from 1-8.30pm
Prior to the visit we are warming up with a full day of film september 30 showing Rainers films Lives of Performers and Privilege, the documentary Feelings Are Facts: The Life of Yvonne Rainer by Jack Walsh among other films. Read more at weld.se

Tickets at: ticnet.se

http://dansenshus.se/event/phoenix/

Phoenix is a work created with choreographer Rebecka Stillman. On stage we meet 13 dance artists who use different chorographical methods to explore what it means to actually be a company. They delve deep into the knowledge and experience they have between them as a group, to see what might come out on the other side of the fire. The focus is on how the body of a company is built, examining its social as well as physical characteristics.

Weld Company comprises dancers and choreographers from different generations and contexts that together explore different choreographical methods and issues concerning the collective and the shared. Weld Company is the brainchild of the Weld dance and art platform in Stockholm.

Choreography Rebecka Stillman with Caroline Byström, Robin Dingemans, Sybrig Dokter, Marie Fahlin, Pavle Heidler, Noah Hellwig, Elias Girod, Disa Krosness, Josefine Larson Olin, Sandra Lolax, Robert Malmborg, Per Sacklén, Kajsa Sandström, Hanna Strandberg, Andrea Svensson, Anna Westberg.

Company

To be a company

To be a company but not be in the same constellation every day

To work with the absence of company members.

Does collectivity exist in an ever changing structure?

We have hopes for the future of the company and we have many questions; we speculate about the future of Weld Company and ‘The Dance Company’ in general.

We are two clusters merging with new members freely oscillating between them. The boundaries between Weld Co 13 and 14 dissolving as we meet in various constellations.

In 2013 when I spent nearly 3 months in this structure through working with the invited choreographers the relationships with the other dancers were forged by this work. Through the work we related in a certain way with a certain body. These bodies are absent or have changed and ways of connecting are re-negotiated and bodies are re- again. By choosing to do or not do things identities change course or shape or manifest in a different way. Shape-changing the identity of Weld Company.
