Ingri Fiksdal returns to BIT Teatergarasjen and Bergen with her most recent performance "Cosmic Body"

Created on Monday, 01 February 2016 Written by Andreas - BIT Bergen

BIT Teatergarasjen has been a co-producer and presenter of Ingri Fiksdals work since her graduation days.
It is with excitement that we present her new piece in march 2016. 

About the performance:

pendulum allowed to swing freely for 24 hours will slowly spin around its own axis. The pendulum is not the cause, but the Earth rotating underneath it. As if it's attached to the sky. 

In Cosmic Body the dancers move under a large pendulum dramatically swinging through the space. It evokes the alluring notion of the perpetuum mobile, the whimsical idea of infinite movement without needing a source of energy. Energy is transformed from one form to another. Energy is wasted in all processes, creating an increasing amount of disorder, which ultimately explains why time goes forwards and not backwards. A constantly expanding universe opposes the illusion of a harmonic cosmos. The pendulum represents a fixed point within a constantly moving universe. In

Cosmic Body the connection with nature has been restored. No energy goes to waste. Fiksdal has created an ethereal piece, a choreographic take on the pulsating universe and the illusory notion of the perpetuum mobile.
