Gun Lund & E=mc2 Danskonst
Juniperus (latin for juniper) is a dance performance created specifically for the vast landscape at Axvalla Hed.
This encounter between human and nature, between contemporary dance and ancient history, will take place only a few evenings in August. Choreographer Gun Lund wishes to evoke a world where near magical figures appear amongst the junipers, outlining their shapes against the horizon. The figures inscribe bodily patterns, as individuals and in groups, while bridging a gap in time and history.
Junipers can live to be 800 years old, perhaps more. What might we imagine them to have witnessed since the heath at Axvalla was landscaped, several centuries ago.
The original musical composition to this site specific draws inspiration from the heath and from sounds of the junipers themselves.
Welcome to join us and share a truly original dance experience in the Swedish summer evening!
