Dear Presenter, dear Colleagues,

CODA Oslo International Dance Festival
October 17, 20 h - world première
October 18, 20 h
Venue: Norwegian Opera House, stage 2 (Oslo)
Ingun Bjørnsgaard often stages her fumbling, brutal and beautiful characters as they are crossing the boundary between restraint and spectacle. In "Omega and the Deer" they get lost in such a place, on the way to the forest, taken prisoner by their own shadows. There is a framework, which outlines different spaces and directions for our movements: our body, our gender, our sense of belonging to a place, our sociability, our past. This entails the perceptions and contrasts that shape us and create movement, friction, despair and melancholy. The piece addresses among other things the complex self‐perception of the modern man, with references to the art of Edvard Munch.
