Nykker

Short trailer:

“Nykker” is an abstract pas de deux on point based on observations of people’s manic whims.

Two women on a mission search inside themselves and each other and doing their little whims in secret. “Nykker” explores the idea of ​​swapping, keeping, enjoying and confronting one’s whims.

The starting point are manic compulsions – small tics or repetitive actions. It’s contemporary dance on point. The close cooperation between choreographer, composer and set designer provides a powerful and highly whimsical universe reminiscent of something old-fashioned and rigid but also alien, naked and exposed.
