Where: Tindved Kulturhage, Verdal

FROM THE FLYER:

“Fra undring i en ny situasjon med Covid-19 til toalettpapirdans, kjedsomhet som kreativt uttrykk, dansefoto fokus, viking tematikk, relasjonsutfordringer til viktigheten av å skape hverdagsgleder. Her er det noe for mange og Ann Kathrin ser fram til å både stå på en scene og se dere igjen publikum. Velkommen skal du være.”

BACKGROUND:

My first full evening show happened 1st of august 2021 in my hometown Verdal. It consists of work I had created during the pandemic years. The goal was to show my hometown a bit of what my profession samtidsdans / contemporary dance is.

Being a freelance dancer during the lockdown wasn’t easy, but I continued creating and exploring in my studio and working on my craft. Over time an idea started  emerging that I wanted to put up a show with differt creations of mine.  I’d never performed  in my hometown before, so when the pandemic restrictions got lighter in Norway, in the summer of 21, I had arranged some plans, and just went for it. 

CONTENT:

  • Live solos and a duet
  •  Dance Picture Reel
  •  Dance Videos
  • The event was also blessed with a soloperformance of danceartist Linn Christin Aagedal in the Foajee before the show.

An impression of the show

RESULT:

After not performing in two years, this event felt amazing and helped me want to continue in my profession. Besides creating and performing again, I also got useful experience in creating flyers, programs, applying for funding, marketing, planning, and organizing. In short; everything from ideas to performance. This was a very good training for my next show, “Veikryss” in the spring of 22, that featured  more people and collaborations.
