Carl Knif Company & Helsinki Dance Company: Fugue in two colors

Contemporary dance

Fugue in two colors is a stu­dy of the an­cient re­la­tions­hip bet­ween mu­sic and dan­ce.

In the pie­ce Fu­gue in two co­lors choreographer Carl Knif re­turns to exp­lo­re the exp­res­si­ve po­wer of mo­ve­ment. The st­rict mu­si­cal form of Dmit­ri Šos­ta­ko­vitš’s pre­lu­des and fu­gues is jux­ta­po­sed with the ramb­ling mo­ve­ment of the dan­cers.

Fugue in two colors is per­for­med by a cast of se­ven con­sis­ting of dan­cers from Hel­sin­ki Dan­ce Com­pa­ny and Carl Knif Com­pa­ny. The pie­ce fo­cu­ses on the dan­cer as a per­cei­ving and sen­sing being. The re­la­tions­hip bet­ween the pre­lu­de and fu­gue, two en­ti­ties, re­la­ted but yet dif­fe­rent, is a ba­sic cha­rac­te­ris­tic of the cho­reog­rap­hy.
