SonoR is an ode to playfulness. From playing music to playing dead, from playing dancer to playing at sounding like a seashore landscape, the four performers in SonoR transform themselves along with the games they play. Equipped with wireless microphones, they shape what is to be heard as much as they reveal what is to be seen. Shifting from monstrous characters to Ukrainian folk singers or powerful drummers of each others’ bodies, the four women in SonoR utilize and share their corporeal complexities. They open a path through inner landscapes and through intensely concrete situations onstage.

"The crowd walks faster, breaking into a sprint or suddenly slackening and losing formation. It looks at times like a game of tig, or a football match without a ball. There is a sense of starlings mysteriously gathering or shoals of fish somehow darting in the same direction without any obvious leader. Above all, it looks atomic, especially as the participants spin away from the group to talk to the rest of us. It is like a microcosm in reverse: Brownian-motion enacted by full-size people."The Guardian

The dancers enter into a game in which they continuously reinvent their identities in relation to each other. A rich stage vocabulary of dance, situations, small talk, occurrences and dreams is created by questioning what it means to be close to someone. The present is a creation made up of collaborations and endless variations of all the encounters that take place.

I SITT EGET SELSKAPIn one’s own company
An expressive, humoristic and surrealistic dance and theatre performance. On stage we meet five people trying to find their place within themselves and within the group.

Five dancers, 12 large mirrors and 60 aluminum pipe.The physical movement and the movement compositions meets a world of sounds, light illusions, a sculpture of pipes.
