Autumn 2022

DuvTeatern presents two new performances premiering in November 

Två duetter

 

 

Två duetter is a dance performance composed of two duets, Vardag and Sense of Hope. The performance is a collaboration between DuvTeatern and Carl Knif Company.

 

Vardag 


Vardag is a duet choreography created and performed by Carl Knif and Pia Renes. The performance contemplates the everyday through Pia’s perspective. She guides us through her routines, hobbies, and work. The structures, colour codes, and rhythms of her weekly schedule transform into music and movement. The everyday becomes poetry, the small becomes big in this intimate study of time and its essence.

Dance: Pia Renes, Carl Knif

Sense of Hope

 

Sense of Hope is a duet created by Carl Knif in collaboration with Emil Nordman and Eero Vesterinen. This autobiographical work is based on Emil’s own experiences of loneliness and exclusion. Despite the dark theme, however, the performance wants to evoke light and warmth through text and dance. Can we be reconciled with our pasts? How might we find our way back to the light? These are the questions posed by the performance.

Näkterbaren

– a karaoke comedy
 


In a small city by the sea, somewhere in Swedish Finland, lies Näkterbaren, a fairly ordinary karaoke bar. Some come here to work, some to toast and boast, and some to dream. We all long for something. In Näkterbaren, we can find both ourselves and each other. Come on in! Näkterbaren is DuvTeatern’s first comedy, and it is built on the characters created by the actors. The performance is directed by Christoffer Strandberg.
