H2DANCE is currently researching their next production Amplified Edition during residencies at Dance4, MetalCulture & Earl Street Creative Space UK, Dansens Hus SE, Dance All Year Along DK and DansiT NO.
Amplified Edition explores hierarchy, power relationship and co-dependency, and aims to interrogate new ways of looking at our relationship to objects and space. Exploring notions of the illogical, the production looks at non-conventional ways of interacting with the theatre space. Working with objects such as lights, microphones, cables, filters, ropes, curtains and smoke, the performers take a serving role, foregrounding the elements around them. In a continuous quest to find new relationships, they set the objects in motion whilst arranging, rearranging, building and potentially destroying in order to create visual landscapes.
