Experience your daily surroundings from a movement perspective, get familiar with the many sides of dance today, have fun, take part in it and let the dances become reality!
For Sharing Dances dance artists from all over the world have created and written down short dances. These verbal dance instructions are handed out in the form of flyers to passers-by in the street and/or to visitors of a theatre, as it for example happened at Dansens Hus in Oslo. As receiver of such a dance you are invited to dance it where you are straight away, or take it home with you. You can do the dance alone or with your friends, at school, at work, in the street, in a dance studio or you dance it in your imagination.
The dances have been made especially for the Sharing Dances project, and everybody can do them. Sharing Dances is educative for those who think that dance is only about hopping around and being beautiful. But also for insiders it provides a fresh take on familiar themes.
The dances deal with subjects like music and silence, dance as a gift, games, poetry of breathing, red objects, dance in the sauna, early memories, “crossdressing”, lip dancing, the weather and many more.
