In Undying – A Handwork, Solveig Styve Holte takes as her starting point Noa Eshkol’s tapestries, first created as a protest against the October War in 1973. Eshkol said ‘There were no rules, no theory - just passion’. The solo can be read as a low-key pacifist work; about resilience, and about slowly returning to life.
Janne-Camilla Lyster’s Time and Solitude is based on Eshkol's dance suite Angles and Angels from 1990 – characterised by the meeting between the emotional and the mathematical, with complex geometric floor patterns, and time as a slow and unpredictable conductor. The solo offers a space for contemplation and insight across time and place.
The solos can be seen as objects of movement, made for the museum and gallery space; stripped of scenic effects, and where the moment gets to unfold here and now in a meeting with the audience.
