  Munch- a journey through dance, music and pictorial art
Music- and dance performance for the whole family
 

"Munch – a journey through dance, music and pictorial art", takes its inspiration from paintings by Edvard Munch. Established choreographers representing different styles have made short ballets based on these paintings. Likewise, the composer has taken his inspirations directly from the paintings. Edvard Munchs thoughts is read by an actor.

Music- and dance performance, for children from the age of 10 - 100.

"Dance for You" has so far been seen by over 50.000 people. The performance shows the enormous variety of forms and styles that are encompassed within dance as an art form. Neo classical, jazz, modern and experimental dance are all linked together by music and poetry. The composer plays the role of a "maestro". With humour and charm he leads the audience through a range of different artistic expressions.

"You showed us a new language through dance and music. You made it beautiful and humorous, with emotions and style, captivating and thrilling."

Music- and dance performance, for children from the age of 6

"You and I and the Two of us" is a performance for children where dance, music, song and drama tell the story of a meeting between a grumpy friendless composer called Maestro and a young, sympathetic girl called Ballerina. Maestro is not interested in having any other friends than his keyboards and his computer, whereas Ballerina wants them to co-operate in making dance and music. The meeting between these two reflects scepticism, curiosity and rejection but concludes with forgiveness and friendship. It is not always easy to say sorry. The performance relies on a lively interaction between audience and artists.

"Two artists who exude talent from head to toe – this is the cream of Norwegian art. They show a genuine love for their art and have created a form that reaches to the hearts of their audience."

Three choreographers and one composer present their vision of the circle of life: - one story - three storytellers. The Spiral represents mankind search for knowledge, meaning and awareness. The Circle represent the march of time. The choreographers each have their own contemporary style, but work together in producing continuity. The choreography range from the absurd to the lyrical. The musical style varies from the neo classical to modern rhythms.  

"Dans & Toner have yet again presented us with a performance that explodes with energy and quality. The dancers and the music melt together in a way that has become the hallmark of Dans & Toner. Bravo!"

Impulses

In this performance you will se classical, neo classical, jazz and modern dance created by five different choreographers. They have all taken their inspiration from situations that young people can relate to. Our intention is to show that inspiration can be found all around us - it is just to open ones eyes and senses and live! The dances are bound together by the composer who, through music, dialog and humour, creates contact with the audience.

"Impulses" was fantastic! This high quality performance engaged the audience. At last we got the opportunity to experience art at its highest level. We want more!"

Visions

In the performance "Visions" we meet three art forms: music, pictorial art and dance. Six very different choreographers have each made their dance inspired by Norwegian pictorial art. Some have been inspired by the energy of the painting, some by the form and some by the subject matter. The choreographers are very different both in personality, work methods and experience, something we see reflected in the dances they have created. The composer has had an ongoing dialog with the choreographers, so that the music also encompasses a wide range of styles.

"A beautifully presented, charming and pulsating performance."
