Allow me to Translate
Allow Me To Translate, commissioned for På Tå Hev in 2019, premiered on Stage 2 of the Oslo Opera house on December 21st.
Toying with the assumption that dance has to have a direct meaning, the narrator offers loose translations while observing the day in the life of young people sometime in the future. In this future, verbal language is replaced by highly sensitive movement... some may call it dance.
