Arch of Frost. Örjan Andersson 2005

CND ARCHIVE REPERTOIRE 90/11. GUEST CHOREOGRAPHERS

Arcos de Escarcha. Bailarina: Luisa María Arias
  • Choreography: Örjan Andersson
  • Music:Ghislain Poirier, Blir and Steinbrüchel
  • Sets and Light Desing: Jens Sethzman
  • Costumes: Magdalena Åberg
  • World premiere by Compañía Nacional de Danza at Teatro de la Zarzuela (Madrid), October 28th 2005.

The starting point for Arches of Frost was the idea of a construction reminiscent of something familiar both in terms of spatiality and choreography, something that changes its direction or position regularly, often alternating between two extremes. A set-upreflecting the influence of gravity. These ideas are well known working tools in choreograpy and also present in different shapes in this piece. The situation could remind you of a ritual in a ¨house¨, which progress into a trancelike state in a moving space.

There´s two main elements in Arches of Frost which is a recurring theme in Ö. Andersson´s work with movements: Force and Gravitation, or to use a definition of gravity: the mutual force of attraction between all particles or bodies that have mass. This definition might sound technical but there´s more to it than what it seems. Force, Attraction, Mass; defining words for the choreographic world of Ö. Andersson.

Force and Mass is very present in the physicality of the movements, both for the individual and the group, and Attraction is what lies beneath the sensuality that somehow seeps through the precise musicality that dominate Ö. Andersson´s choreographic structure. In Arches of Frost the design, by Jens Sethzman a long time collaborator, is also verging towards gravity in its simplest form and juxtaposes the physicality of the dancers, and to a certain extent the choreographic dramaturgy, which works in the format of short red episodes.
