GRAVITY zooms in on the experience of the present moment and explores the potential of the senses and emotions in our meeting with other people.
The work is the last part of the trilogy Rethink Ageing and is performed by Sisse Lunøe (69 years old) and Snorre Jeppe Hansen (27 years old) or Sisse Lunøe (69 years old) and her husband Lars Bjertrup (62 years old).
A large rose-coloured sculpture out of metal - 7 meters in size - is the performers partner and opponent on stage. The sculpture is suspended from the centre of the ceiling and is affected by its balance point and the power of gravity. The audience sits in a circle formation enclosing the performers. By being in close proximity to the performers the audience are given the opportunity to make eye contact with the dancers during the performance.
Central to GRAVITY is the examination of the sensing body, and the effect the senses have on our self-perception, others and the world that surround us.
