Many things-things and nothing-things. - Alma Söderberg, Choreographer

Rhythm is a Dancer? On Rhythm, Movement and Choreography

Organised by: MA Choreography and Performance, ATW, Justus-Liebig Universität Gießen in collaboration with Künstlerhaus Mousonturm

In this lecture I will make a trajectory through the chronology of 4 of my works: Cosas, Travail, Idioter and Nadita. I will both talk about the works and do excerpts from them. I will frame the presentation talking about how I've used the word thing in different ways in my work. I will try to show and tell how many thing-things, two thing-things and nothings-things have come into play using rhythm, voice and movement.

Alma Söderberg makes choreographies that include music, sound, rhythm and singing in relation to movement and dance. She grew up in Sweden, spent a few years dancing flamenco in Spain and graduated from SNDO in 2011. Her work has won the prizes Its choreography award (Amsterdam), ACT festival prize (Bilbao) and 100 grad Berlin audience prize and has been shown in among others: Impulstanz (Wienna), Springdance EIM (Utrecht), Tanz in Bern, MDT (Stockholm) and Something Raw (Amsterdam).
