This Saturday April 28th at 19.00 marks the premiere for Spinn’s new production Skirtpower, choreographed by Stockholm based choreographer Carl Olof Berg. The premiere takes place at Vitlycke – Centre for Performing Arts and we are so excited to finally be able to share this amazing dance piece with you!
The starting point for Skirtpower is the notion of the skirt as an ambiguous symbol of our society’s view on our bodies. About different codes for masculinity and femininity and expressions of sexuality. That the skirt, throughout history, has been a garment communicating masculinity and power, but how today it’s so clearly a feminine garment.
“I want to talk about how the skirt choreographs our bodies, but also about our gaze on those who wear it. About the power it holds to take place, limit, expose and hide. And the desire to choreograph the skirt.” – Carl Olof Berg, choreographer
The cast consist of Spinn’s dancer Emilia Wärff, dancer Izabell Makiela and Italian dancer Aristide Rontini. The cast also consists of musician and composer Lisen Rylander Löve who has written the music and who is also performing live.
