Alt strekker seg mot solen

en forestilling om vekst

a performance inspired by, and composed specifically for the botanic garden in Oslo. Dance, computer projected drawing, music and film are interwoven in a structured, yet spontanious multimedia performance.

Relating to the incredible process of groath, reaching for the sun; slow meets fast, the dead comes to life…and blossoms.

Everything is reaching for the sun!

Inside glass – cleaving revenge towards an equal plane

inside-glass-plakatjpg1A crossover performance inviting us to recreate our memorial conceptions in an absorbing blend of theater, dance, installation art and music. A journey to the inside of a world in-between worlds. At the intersection of dream and reality the memory is put to test, and the necessity to speak surface. A transformation – a change of skin – from rejuvenation to realization, of a woman’s fight for expression in itself.

Dalilah’s dream

Short solo performance

A monologue written by Branco. The text is based on the process of losing, states and actions of someone when deprived of someone else. Dalilah´s man is gone and from the desert of herself she speaks out.

I was patient enough to be on the bottom of the sea, even if the waves would come too close. so close to wet my feet. I decided to stay because I could not grasp what is to be close. how close is close enough?

Queen of the Night

Short solo performance

A monologue written by Branco. The performance explores the universe of storytelling, where the main character spits himself out from an imaginary children book and then he speaks his own story.

come Queen Of The Night
come to embrace me
make me sleep through three decades
till blood is vanished away from this river

I can only see an empty page

Short solo performance

A re-worked extract of Branco´s solo from the performance Open Books – I can only see a library. The world of books comes out in a character, which flips over himself as he talks about books, becomes the contents of books and finds himself inside books.
