'Make Me Dance' Behind The Scenes

Make Me Dance is a choreographed concert. Through movement, sound and text three dancers and one musician look at why they have become professional artists. Make Me Dance is a performance about the choices we make and the small, yet universal stories that shape us as human beings.

Make Me Dance is an energising performance that suits a cross-generational audience. It is a performance that inspire and leave you nostalgic.

The movement vocabulary and text are results of discussions between the performers and the creative team. Discussions based on stories that are shaped through memories of how it all started, how the need to dance became the key to the future and the source of challenges and success.

Journalist, Mari Johnsen Viksengen, said after seeing Make Me Dance: "This is a piece not only about dance as a passion, but about how any kind of passion is important to give life reason"

Make Me Dance is an immersive dance theatre production where the audience is part of the performance space, encapsulated by the scenography. Feedback from the audience confirms the aim of interaction: "I really felt we were part of the performance not just looking at it"

Make Me Dance is produced by Brageteatret and Pantarei Dance Theater and is part of the project TILT
