AS A START
AS A START is, as the title suggests, the start of the co-operation between choreographers Jannik Elkær and Kristoffer Louis Andrup Pedersen - and the starting point of the constellation DON GNU
Two men meet themselves in each other. Their backgrounds and search for understanding themselves and one another mark the central point of the performance. Psychological and physical constructions create the obstacles in this complex yet at times almost banal meeting.
Selectricity are behind the sound design and music creating sound universe that functions as scenography while at the same time supporting the physical expressions in the dance.
