Of All Its Parts: From Darkness
Of All Its Parts: From Darkness (premiere Feb. 2020) is a choreographic work by the award-winning Danish duo two-women-machine-show, which examines the capacities of female imagination. On stage, we meet two dancers whose practice invokes a cavalcade of images, figures, stories and abstractions. Through sticking to their task the dancer’s relentless activity creates a total figure of transformation.
Of All Its Parts: From Darkness is an episodic work, based on a score of poetic instructions which the choreographers reinterpret each time the work is performed. All decisions for sound, set and costumes stem from the same score.
- About two-women-machine-show
two-women-machine-show refers to the award-winning collaboration between the Danish choreographers Ida-Elisabeth Larsen and Marie-Louise Stentebjerg. Together they belong to a group of Danish choreographers, whose critical thinking and uncompromising approach to the ‘experiment’ challenges conventions and opens up new avenues for dance. Their choreographic thinking draws on a practice-based approach to theory, an in-depth experimentation with transcendental techniques as well as text-based performance.

- Practical information ahead of your visit
Warmly welcome to MDT!
We are contacting you with some practical information ahead of your visit:
MDT is located on Skeppsholmen. Using public transport, you get to us by bus 65 (stop Östasiatiska Museet and then a short walk along the water), or a slightly longer walk from T-centralen or the nearest metro station Kungsträdgården. Paid car park is available near the entrances.
The entrance is located on Slupskjulsvägen 32. We have expanded our social space, including Level 1 to increase the possibility to keep the distance between each other. There are facilities for washing your hands, as well as face masks and hand sanitiser provided.
Before the performance starts it is possible to wait outside – we offer coffee and tea for those who want to keep warm. Make sure to dress according to weather as we might operate a queue system outside in order to avoid congestion at the box office. Remember to download your e-ticket in advance so you can be prepared to show it to the hosts upon arrival.
Our audience hosts on site are available to answer any potential questions.
See you soon!
