NET - an interactive dance performance where you hold the board
In NET, a net moves in and spreads in the theatre space. Together with three dancers, you unfold the performance and a choreographic kaleidoscope emerges. Here, we get lost in an undulating landscape of 192 elastic squares, which, with dance as a motor, opens doors to new spaces to wedge our fantasies into. To catchy beats and melodic loops, we build a shared aesthetic experience together.
In contrast to contemporary notions of identity, autonomy and independence, NET invites you to dance by making room for you to become a link in the chain, a thread in the web or an atom in the molecule. With speculative curiosity, we see ourselves as parts of new figures in constant transformation. Perhaps this is a world where singing cats enter and pixelated avatars dance in a pyramid?

The performance is presented for children in primary school and kindergarten as well as in theaters for mixed audiences.
Since 2018, OR/ELLER has cultivated an interest in interactive performance formats (WEB 2018 and V 2020), within a series called the WEB-series. The series is based on a choreographic and scenographic concept, which will result in four performances. In 2023, the third part, NET, will be created, diving into a mobile performance format. Unlike our previous visually powerful stage performances, with extensive set designs, this performance will move into the children's school environment as well as other types of rooms.
