ARTISTIC and BRAVE ...
PEOPLE OF STOCKHOLM + THE WHOLE WORLD!
Here at the OXYTOCIN PROJECT - We do a whole lot of work around empathy and the interconnection of the whole world.
AND this week we are collaborating with 12 companies worldwide, (including the Bangkok Ballet!), in a HUGE project called "SEVEN TO THE SEVENTH”…
It is all Ana Sanchez-Colberg’s brain child and is run from the Athens Festival "Nostos Summer Festival", ( as her company theatre en Corps Collective).
Here is what is happening:
This project runs from Monday 24th of June to Sunday the 30th of June!
Ana is curating events and leading from Athens. And so far 15 other cities are collaborating.
Chennai, India, San Francisco, Miami, Puerto rico, Arnhem in the Netherlands, Tokyo, Athens, Byblos in Lebanon and much more....
..... Bangkok ballet will dance on their roof top with us! 🌎🌍🌏
See the groups here here:
So each day, in every city, we all synchronise to the 7 pm in one of the seven time zones.
Each day changes time zone. See above!
At that time, we all synchronise a dance, a mega simple improvised movement moment as a reaction to the sound score - .
That is open to all people.
The dance is lead by a short 7 minute audio score in headphones, with sounds, music and poetry, created especially for headphones in binaural sound quality!!
And featuring sounds of the lead city on that day.
It also has a simple movement score/instructions that ANYONE CAN FOLLOW and is actually accessible to all.
We have the option to do that score 7 times in synch with everyone else around the globe.
But with 7 minute breaks in between.
So for example day one in Stockholm, I will start the dances at 6 pm to be in Synch with the whole global project and we will run 7 times the seven minute score of that day.
So ending by 19.45, also including our 7 x 7 minute breaks.
Anyone and everyone is also welcome to join. But also to drop in and out.
Or do it just once etc... Or just observe.
Including the public passing by!!!
THE amazing thing is that we are using two LIVE STREAMING VIDEO PLATFORMS that link us all together.
So we can dance duets and trios across the globe with the other companies..... if we wish :)
Each day I have planned to be in a different spot in STOCKHOLM.
MONDAY 24th June at 18.00 - at a daytime beach salsa party
THURSDAY 27th June at 19.00 - in Doch cirkus with my bungee harnesses just because its so much fun
