On the brink of the ruin - May 2015

A site specific movement installation by Gun Lund and E=mc2 Dance

 

Saturday 30th May 2015

7 pm – 7.30 pm

Free admission

 

For several years Gun Lund has sought out and drawn attention to forgotten places in the public space. Through moving bodies she will create lines in the landscape, making the audience view their surroundings in new ways.

 

Now the audience is invited to discover the ruins of Gamla Älvsborg, a castle dating back to the 14th century. It was once a proud and important fortification overlooking the harbour entrance of the city. Dancers and musicians will let this hidden and forgotten place of Gothenburg come alive for a short while in the most beautiful time of spring – when the green colours of nature are light and fresh, contrasting with the mystic remnants of the old ruin.

 

Location: The ruin of Gamla Älvsborg on the hill, next to Sockerbruket (the sugar refinery) and behind Hotel Novotel, in Klippan, Gothenburg.

Festive evening on International Dance Day 29 April 2015

 

The International Dance Day is celebrated throughout the world each year on 29 April, placing the art of dance in the spotlight, and aiming at presenting dance to new audiences.

 

In this year’s program presented at 3:e Våningen, E=mc2 Dance performs the piece Mr Smith in Rhodesia, staged and choreographed by Gun Lund already in 1992. It is built around a text and sound composition by Åke Hodell, from 1970. The work is highly political, criticising the apartheid system in Rhodesia (later renamed Zimbabwe). The theme is sadly relevant still today, in many countries and places in the world.
