SIGNAL

SIGNAL is a performance that invites you in, sends out and signals. A play with movement, sound, light, film and images. In SIGNAL, the dancers and the audience are in the same space – experiencing the performance together. Step into a poetic, surprising and delightfully willful performance with new perspectives. In SIGNAL you can sit, stand and walk. And hold someone’s hand if you want to!

What are signals and how are they created? In SIGNAL we are in a marvellous world where physicality and sounds appear in new contexts. To be in front of and behind, in the middle and the periphery, communicating and sending signals. To send a signal is also to communicate meaning; feelings, impressions, distance.
 
Set designer and artist Anna Nyberg and composer Mikael Svanevik create spaces where sound can move with the performers, and can be far away and close. The music is in part inspired by the radio sound scape. Short waves. Long waves. Waves of noise. It is music and sound that points to the future and looks back simultaneously. 
 
Choreographer Claire Parsons and her company makes innovative, high quality performance art for young audiences. The work is praised for its visuals, performers and the precise interaction with the audience. With playful elegance and humor, audiences of all ages are invited in to experience new and exciting worlds with the performers.
 
 Four reasons why you should go and see SIGNAL:
1. It is a world premiere.
2. You can go with the whole family.
3. You are invited to sit, stand and move in an experience of sound and light in movement. 
4. It is a poetic, surprising and willful experience to be shared together.

World premiere at Dansens Hus, Stockholm November 5 - 7 2017.
Family performance, from 5 years.
