Dance on Karl Johan

Review by Cecilia Olsson in Danstidningen no. 6, 2007

The three dancers who perform in the veteran Kjersti Engebrigtsen's piece Pustestripe are also young. In a large and beautifully lit glasshouse located right in the heart of the parade street Karl Johan in Oslo, the pure aesthetics of this dance performance becomes a magnificent guest in real life. By means of a stringent yet lyrical idiom, a series of mystical moods enfold to Erik Wøllo's thundering, electroacoustic music. Many passers-by stop and wonder what this is all about. Some continue on their way, others remain standing, fascinated.
