Make Me Dance is our brand new piece that is currently on tour. To give you a little taste of the performance you can watch a short promotional video above. If you want to know more about how the musician, Marcus Amadeus, creates the music for the work, live, during the show, then you can check out another video right here to learn all about that.
Up and coming performance dates are available in the Calendar page.
We have a new Facebook page for Tilt 2017. Tilt activities happen throughout the year for us, some of them with the public and many of them behind the scenes as we prepare for the Autumn when most of the Tilt activity will happen. As we make these preparations we want to keep in touch with you, our participants, audience members and volunteers, for the new Tilt year so we have set up a new Facebook page for you to follow so you can get all of the updates.
Our 2017 Calendar will be updated very soon with a list of all the activities so you can also follow along by visiting this website. If you prefer Facebook then follow this link and hit the "like" button and we will see you all very soon.
If you want to catch up with Tilt 2016 then you can watch our documentary video right now on this page
We would like to invite you along to a couple of performances that will be taking place in the beautiful small town of Fagernes in the north east of Norway this November ;o)
First of all there will be a promenade performance, including local dancers and young people, starting at the Thon Hotel that will move along the shore line of the lake before ending up at the local Valdres Folk Museum.The performance will start at 6pm on November 23rd and will last approximately 90 minutes.
The next day, November 24th, we will have a full length performance of our latest double bill 'Promise of Departure' featuring three of our dancers (Julie Ekornes, Johnny Autin and Anton Wretling). This work will also be performed at Valdres Folk Museum at 6pm, the show is approximately 1 hour.
So come along and join us.
Over the last couple of months the team at Panta Rei have been slowly crafting our new work that forms part of the Tilt project for 2016. 'Promise of Departure' is actually 2 pieces (elements of one of the works can be seen in the video above from Anne Ekenes and Pia Holden).
Unusually for us this rehearsal period took place at Pavilion Dance Southwest in Bournemouth, England. We were invited to the UK at the beginning of August, along with our dancers Julie Ekornes, Johnny Autin and Anton Wretling, for a week of development on the new piece so we could not only rehearse we could also take part in a work in progress sharing with a few people from PDSW and members of the public.
Development on the second piece by British dance maker Rachel Erdos, which also explores the theme of vulnerability, has been taking place closer to home in Oslo.
All of this is building toward the premiere of the show at Teater Innlandet in Hamar on November 10th with lots of performances after that for young people and adults alike.
Teater Innlandet and Panta Rei Danseteater are currently developing a brand new dance production ´Promise of Departure´, a double bill created in collaboration with British dance maker Rachel Erdos.
Promise of departure is a work that explores vulnerability and strength. How these two factors come to play in the relationships we have and the struggles we are forced to overcome. The promise of connection and the departure from our comfort zone.
