Pile it on

What is a person's history? What are the memories that we as individulas carry with us? What is truth, what is lies, what is real and what is fake? How do we pile up our memories, convey them, alter them and distort them? ‘Pile it on’ revolves around physical expressions that arise when you remember and vice versa - to access memories through physical activity. The dancers go through the piece of art to fuse their identities. Mergers can be seen as a metaphor for consensus, but also for letting go of one's own identity. Örjan Andersson takes his exceptional and compositional capacity to a new challenge between speech and movement directly from the dancing body. Two clear, personal dancers, Japanese Yoshifumi Inao, born and raised in Kyoto, Japan and Asher Lev, born in Canada and raised in Israel, meet here. The expression is personal, touching, playful and as always in Örjan Andersson's work, an exploration of the composition as an aesthetic tool.

Örjan Andersson behärskar fullfjädrat kraften i unison dans- här används den punktvis och dynamiskt elegant, vältaligt och uttrycksfullt. Både komposition och rörelse är generösa, öppna och slukar betraktaren.

Suverän dans. Örjan Anderssons 'Pile it on' är en ren lycka att se.
