About the event
In this workshop we begin each day with a warm-up session where I will share exercises, ideas and movement tasks that I found useful and inspiring for my own training. I find it fascinating how the way we warm up to a creative day really affects the work that we do afterwards, and therefore warm up is continuously becoming both more precious and specific for me as years go by.
In the second part of each day we will dive into creative tasks, work playfully and explore choreographic tools, ideas and states of presence I have been developing through my work in recent years.
Bára Sigfúsdóttir (b. 1984, Reykjavík, Iceland) is a dancer and choreographer, based in Oslo.
Bára´s artistic work explores themes relating to the human being in interconnection with nature and society. Starting from significant topics, she explores ways of zooming in on them through the moving body in a poetic, human, detailed and vivid manner.
Bára always works with the process of improvisation as a point of departure from where she develops musical and multi-layered choreographic material. She frequently collaborates with artists who inspire her from other art fields.
Bára's performances On the other side of a sand dune, The Lover, TIDE, 'being', FLÆÐI, FLÖKT and Fabulation have been presented at national and international venues and festivals, including Reykjavik Arts festival, Venice Biennale, Ice-Hot Nordic Dance Platform, Tanzmesse, Performatik festival, Theaterfestival, Moving Futures festival, Theater Aan Zee and Julidans amongst others. In 2015 The Lover was selected for the Circuit X network, which enabled it to tour extensively in Flanders and the Netherlands. The Lover received 6 nominations for the Icelandic Performing arts Awards in 2019, where Bára was awarded 'Choreographer of the Year' and 'Dancer of the Year' in Iceland.
