Dancing Recurrences

Dancing Recurrences

Brynjar Åbel Bandlien presents the result of his artistic research project Dancing Recurrences – a performative practice within dance and dance-making at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter at Høvikodden from 2019.

Bandlien coins the term 'recurrences' to describe the situations, events, actions, movements and states that recurs in artistic practice and that come out of group work that uses a process-based approach to dance and dance-making. He has let the recurrences lead the way through the process, starting from his two research questions: How can the practice of recurrences become a way to understand an artistic work? How can working with recurrences become a performative practice and an artistic work in and of itself?

The performative practice #dancingrecurrences will be shared over three hours in which the audience is invited to come and go, in and out of the Studio. It is the performative practice that is the main result of the project.
