ALDA

ALDA is a poignant installation that erodes the boundaries between dance and visual arts. In ALDA, choreographer Katrín Gunnarsdóttir draws upon the history of women's collective physical labour, in particular its relation to repetitive motions and song, to generate an event of intimate female assembly, convergence and coalescence.

The driving force behind choreographer Katrín Gunnarsdóttir's current work has been the creation of movement language and imagery from softness, sensitivity, ever-changing movement and the integration of bodies with their environment. This piece is the culmination of many years of collaboration between the choreographer and designer Eva Signý Berger where art forms merge to create a rhythmic wave of experience.

When translated as WAVE, ALDA not only reflects on the form of movement but also refers to time and history, the old and the emerging new.

Dancers will inhabit the space June 11 - 26, and again from August 20 - September 4.
