How can we keep on living in a world that we are increasingly destroying? It is an existentialist question that choreographer Jefta van Dinther asks audiences in his archaic-futuristic diptych «On Earth, I’m Done».
In «Mountains», the first part of the series, van Dinther tackles the challenge of how we can stay in love with our ever-changing planet. The solo is performed by the amazing Agnieszka Sjökvist Dlugoszewska. Using her body as a megaphone Agnieszka laments and grumbles on behalf of others about the unease in the human nature-nurture paradigm.
Cullberg has asked Jefta van Dinther to create two new works as an associate choreographer for the company. The first part of this collaboration is the solo «On Earth I’m Done: Mountains».
The choreographer and dancer Jefta van Dinther, who grew up in Sweden and now lives in Berlin, has long been a star of the international dance scene. His often dark and enigmatic works are deeply invested in the interaction between bodies, light and club culture sounds. The diptych «On Earth, I’m Done» is van Dinther’s latest collaboration with the Swedish dance company Cullberg.
