The title “Display” refers both to the obvious: presentation, exhibition, displaying. Which game is played, what characters are needed in the theatrical space? What signal and symbols do we use and represent? In Display Björn Säfsten continues working closely with light designer Susanna Hedin from SUTODA, composer Victor Sáiz and set designer Jovanna Remaeus Jönson. A visual and audio-visual room is created for presentation of the movement material.
- About Björn Säfsten
Focusing on the examination of movement as an ambivalent language, constructing methods for each new artistic endeavor, Björn Säfsten, choreographer and dancer, shines new light on the human body in a context of movement. In constant search for a method, he uses limitations as a portal to examine his own artistic inheritance and to comment on the discourses that he works within. Since his debut piece “The adaptation” created in residence in Alcala? de Henares, Madrid (2006), Säfsten and his collaborative artistic team has made several productions together. In 2009 Björn was awarded the Cullberg price. His last piece “Corduroy” opened at Dansens Hus in 2010 and is 2011 reconfigured at Magasin 3 in Stockholm.
