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.

Sharing Dances Laboratory

Wildlaks Performance: Sharing Dances The Sharing Dances Laboratory gives the participants the possibility to try out the choreographic tasks and dance them together in a dance space/studio. They are the starting point for guided research, composition and improvisation. The laboratory is led by Annika Luschin and Lars Skoglund, who also provides live music. It is suited for everybody with an interest in dance and movement, and is open for people from all levels of experience.
