LIAISON is an encounter between dance, music, film and other performing arts. During four full evenings between April 9th and 12th, a program will be presented at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern that interweaves different art forms in which various artistic voices are given space to reference each other through overlapping questions, interests and worlds. LIAISON brings to the fore artworks that play with our sense of time. Artworks that through their duration create ceremonies in which embodied and vocal mantras constitute the very substructure of the works’ expression. In an age characterized by an appreciation for productivity and profit, LIAISON wishes to instead seduce through that which lingers, is left alone and takes its own time. In LIAISON, art is given the opportunity to contextualize art, with the purpose of linking instead of explaining. The festival is an initiative of choreographer and dancer Jefta van Dinther. It takes its starting point from his work THIS IS CONCRETE, made in collaboration with choreographer and dancer Thiago Granato.
