Bára Sigfúsdóttir & Noémie Goudal -THE LOVER

maa 09/03/2015 > vri 13/03/2015

This new solo by the Icelandic dancer Bára Sigfúsdóttir in collaboration with the French visual artist Noémie Goudal and the Icelandic musician Borko, is a poetic performance about the complex relationship between man and nature. A lonely, vulnerable woman wanders in a barren, desolate landscape. She is driven on by her survival instinct and her curiosity about the transformative surroundings.
Bára Sigfúsdóttir made her debut with the solo On the other side of a sand dune. In THE LOVER, Bára’s dancing body comes together with Noémie Goudal’s photographic installation. An encounter between Sigfúsdóttir’s very special language of movement and the work of Goudal, who combines illusion, stage design and photography to create surreal landscapes.
“Men loved the Earth so much that they devoured it; they consumed it completely. Then they left because nothing remained for them. After their disappearance, nature grew and constructed new lands.” Noémie Goudal, Les Amants
