Norrdans comes to NorrlandsOperan with a performance in two parts, one part about the number 3 and the difficulty in being 4, about what surrounds us and why it is there. One part about reflections, light and visual magic, aided by new technology and antique elements.
The success AB3 by Martin Forsberg is back.
After the premiere in 2009 AB3 has toured exstensivly in Sweden and particiapated at many international festivals. The performance with Jenny Nordberg’s amazing dramatic costumes and set design combined with a twisted movement material by Martin Forsberg is a admirably example of pioneering choreography work praised by both audience and critics.
One of the oldest traditions in performing arts is the use of illusion to stage seemingly impossible features, like the Pepper’s Ghost effect. Magic has charmed and amazed audiences for centuries. In the performance Pepper’s Ghost choreographer Fernando Melo collaborates with visual artist, Yoko Seyama, combining technology and the use of antique elements like mirrors, reflections, appearance and disappearance to lead the audience on a rhythmic journey of contemporary images.
