Alan Lucien Øyen / winter guests (NO)
Story, story, die.
Hij staat voor het eerst op Julidans en mag meteen het festival openen. Het Noorse talent Alan Lucien Øyen viel ons op toen hij de voorstelling Kodak maakte voor GöteborgOperans Danskompani. Het was een buitengewoon geslaagde combinatie van video, dans en theater. In die mix van disciplines en technologie brengt Øyen dans in zijn meest hedendaagse vorm en op het hoogste niveau, terwijl het tegelijk ergens over gaat. We presenteren zijn nieuwe voorstelling Story, story, die. – die we ook coproduceren – dan ook graag aan het Julidanspubliek.
di 2 & wo 3 juli
± 90 minuten

Truth and falsehood in times of likes and online love.
Story, story, die. is about the way we like to present ourselves better than we are. How we try to imagine ourselves in the most favourable light. The Instagram filters seem to have been invented for it, although it is off all times. Are they innocent lies, just a matter of exaggerating the story?
Together with exceptional dancers, Øyen examines the relationship between lies and love in a world where likes and hearts are conditional, depending on beauty and success. How far will we go to be loved? How long will we be able to constantly direct and reorder our daily lives? Behind that careful facade, Øyen suspects a world of loneliness and a great need for love and security.
What distinguishes Øyen is his grand approach and his monumental performances in which he often mixes dance with film and new technology. Impressive and theatrical, where the dance itself does not lose momentum. It is powerful and virtuoso, performed by dancers who seem to be able to do everything, from classical to hip hop. Øyen is not a beginner: he comes from Carte Blanche and Amanda K. Miller’s Pretty Ugly Dance Company and has been running his own company winter guests for thirteen years. Julidans is not the only one who has him in sight. The Norwegian was one of the first choreographers who, after the death of dance legend, Pina Bausch, was invited by her Tanztheater Wuppertal to create a new work for them - a great honour.
For reasons of sustainability, Julidans will print less paper programme sheets. You can read the programme sheet with more information about the performance and your visit here.
