Sølvi Edvardsen’s MAN
50 min (no intermission)
MAN — in the understanding as man and human being — is a project at the crossroads between two cultures. Through seriousness and humour, MAN portrays individual struggle for inner balance and unfolds as a dialogue between the Norwegian choreographer Sølvi Edvardsen and the remarkable dancer Sudesh Adhana. Presented in collaboration with the CODA Festival and The National Touring Company.
Sudesh Adana, a trained Chhau and Kathakali dancer, is remarkable, portraying the softer qualities of man using only a small sitting stool as his partner.STEPHEN WHITE
