Dansearena Nord: Groove
From 250 NOK
We live within rhythms. With the breath, the heart and in our running steps. This is also the starting point for Groove, which is a dance performance, a concert and an enthusiastic band all in one! Five contemporary dancers, one drummer and 16 drummers take the stage to playfully examine the basic instinct man has for rhythm or groove. It is the feeling that occurs in the body when you hear music that makes you unable to sit still or see a movement you just have to try for yourself.
The background for the play is the initiators Marianne Kjærsund and Elisabeth Nesset's interest in what groove can be, together with the team's enthusiasm for playing drums. How to feel a rhythm by playing it can also be manifested as movement. The performance is structured as a live concert with a number of songs, which have been created through improvisation with dance and drums. All material, both movement and sound, is based on each individual's personal feeling of just groove.
The basic idea behind the performance is that rhythm and movement are something universal. It is something that works across age groups and backgrounds, where moving together to the same rhythm can be an inexhaustible source of energy and joy. The work also challenges what musicality can be, and how the individual's musicality and rhythm affect the community. The performance offers a generous musical presence, where it can be tempting for both young and old to step on the beat and join.
"The beautiful and positive dance feels like a celebration of life itself."
