Works by visual artist Maja Bekan and dance filmmaker Maia Elisabeth Sørensen:

A SERIES OF UNEXPECTED INCIDENTS was made during the dress rehearsal. We see
the ensemble making the P for Performance: A Series of Unexpected Incidents production, another situation constructed by Maja Bekan. We see a group reconstructing the history of the search for a lost sculpture, a process which allows them to make this story their own, to make it an inalienable part of their biographies, as well as the square, the they inhabit and care for. The uncertainty toward the recorded events is emphasized by the title, A Series of Unexpected Incidents. For when there is uncertainty as to what lies in the field of art and what is a social, family, or business gathering, there are some emotional, sometime awkward and rather humorous conclusions, which underline the paradoxes and contradictions in using an art institution for social emancipation and investigating authorship. The joint project is also a concrete source of intimacy, of mutual relationships and the physical experience of co-existence, which allows people to dismantle their illusions of self-sufficiency. Delving into what would appear to be a minor story at various points in the action, with various subjects speaking, is not representing the sphere of politics, but it does provide the space for a political act on a micro scale.

Commissioned by U-jazdowski, CCA, Warsaw Supported by Mondriaan Funds and Stroom Den Haag.

”Nothing Matters When We’re Dancing” by Maia Elisabeth Sørensen portraits three Danes -Nicolaj, Anamet og Grace – who love to dance. They all participate in the Danish nationwide project Ta’ fat om dansen within different programs. In the documentary we meet the three main characters in the studio and in their daily life while they reflect upon what dancing means to them and why nothing matters when they are dancing. When watching them we come to understand how dance as an art form can be life-changing and create a room for essential meetings between people – that art is essential to the human spirit. Nothing Matters When We’re Dancing won the Cinedans Audience Award 2018 for Best Documentary.
Commissioned by Ta’ fat om dansen/Dansehallerne Supported by Nordea-fonden.

During and after the screening drinks will be sold at the bar, so don’t forget to bring cash.
