For invited guest audience: Huldra

In Scandinavian folklore, a huldra is a seductive forest creature with the body of a woman, the tail of an animal and the backside of a hollow tree trunk. The performance takes this beautybeast as a starting point and seeks ways to translate it’s qualities into choreography. Constantly shape-shifting, the performing bodies merge with each other and their environment. The studio space transforms into a sensual glade where the spectator is invited to surrender to the trembling force of allurement.
