Imagine hearing movement and seeing sounds.
In Me Too, handbells and movement melt into a beautiful, clear and tangible synthesis.
Helgebostad/Rueslåtten have created a piece based on the sound of acoustic hand bells and physical movement. We are hearing movements and seeing sounds as colours, energy and three dimensional singing and dancing sculptures in space.
The dancers conjure up a collective movement that constantly transforms itself, like an eternal metamorphosis. They melt together handbells, bodily movement, scenography and light into a black box landscape of suggestive, materialized energy. Meanings are shattered by abstractions and vice versa, it is not easy to see who is who or what is what.
"With rhythmical stamping and hand bells as main elements, Me Too constantly moved in surprising directions.”
