MULTIPLIÉ DANCE FILM

Back in 2015, Multiplié Dance Film was established as a cooperation between DansiT and Minimalen Short Film Festival. This year’s programme is based on the unique profile of Multiplié Dance Festival, which explores and bends the art of dance into new, surprising and exciting forms.

DansiT is a regional dance agency for professional dance artists in South-Trøndelag. DansiT’s main goal is to strengthen and develop the professional dance field in the region. DansiT offers a production space, residency program, co-productions and various workshops/seminars for dance artists. DansiT promotes, offers and delivers a range of dance-related activities, such as national and international guest performances and touring network. In addition, DansiT is Norwegian partner in the international dance film competition 60secondsdance.

Det finnes visstnok ni forskjellige typer intelligens: naturalistisk, musikalsk, logisk-matematisk, eksistensiell, mellommenneskelig, kroppslig/kinestetisk, språklig, selvinnsikt og visuell intelligens.

CHAN 

Det kinesiske ordet «chan» betyr meditasjon. Hva skjer med bevisstheten til en lærd mann når han, inspirert av atmosfæren rundt et forlatt buddhistisk kloster, går inn i en dyp meditasjon? Kan denne transformative prosessen visualiseres gjennom dans?

The Chinese word 'chan' means meditation. When an adept, inspired by the atmosphere of an abandoned Buddhist monastery, goes deep into meditation, what happens to his consciousness? Could the process of transformation be visualized in the form of a dance?

Choreography: Brahim Bouchelaghem | Music: Aleksi Aubry Carlson, Rene Aubry | Cast: Dmitry Li

SINK OR SWIM 

En guttegjeng leker i en forlatt svømmehall. Leken har sine egne regler og hierarkier, og guttene egger hverandre opp til å utfordre grenser. Nykommerne Yinka og Glenn må bevise at de fortjener en plass innad i gruppa. Hvor langt er de villige til å gå? I Sink or Swim danser de som om livet deres avhenger av det.

In an otherwise deserted swimming pool, a group of boys play a game with its own rules and hierarchy. The boys continually goad one another into going another step further. Newcomers Yinka and Glenn first need to prove themselves. How far will they go to gain a position? In Sink or Swim they dance like their life depends on it.

TAILORED 

En skredder og hans kone, på en dag lik alle andre dager. Så kommer hun inn. Plutselig: Et uhell, et blikk… si enda ett ord, og albuene vil røre ved hverandre. Den rytmiske utførelsen av skredderfaget blir en dans.

A tailor, his wife: a day like any other. Then she comes in. Suddenly a mistake, a glimpse... one more word and the elbows will touch. The rhythmic gestures of the craft become a dance.

YOUR BODY IS YOUR BUDDHA 

Vår forståelse av verden kan uttrykkes gjennom kroppen. Koreografien til Your Body is Your Buddha undersøker, gjennom identifikasjon, en slags biologisk metamorfose ved hjelp av et bredt spekter dyrearter. Filmen er inspirert av de tidlige kronofotografiske eksperimentene til Eadweard Muybridge og Étienne-Jules Marey. 
 
The understanding of the world is expressed through the body. The choreography made for this video is intended to investigate, through a process of identification, the countless possibilities of biological metamorphosis taking a cue from the first chronophotographic experiments realized by Eadweard Muybridge and Étienne-Jules Marey and making use of a wide variety of wildlife species.

RHIZOPHORA 

Førti år etter Vietnamkrigen har ennå ikke krigens giftige etterlatenskaper forsvunnet. I en dans mellom drøm og virkelighet, følger Rhizophora elleve vitenamesiske ungdommer med funksjonshemminger som skyldes det kjemiske stoffet kalt «Agent Orange», som ble brukt av amerikanerne under krigen.

It has been forty years since the Vietnam War. Yet, its toxic remnants are not fading. Dancing between waking and dreaming, Rhizophora follows eleven Vietnamese youth, with disabilities caused by the toxic herbicide 'Agent Orange', on a whimsical and intimate journey through their day.

INTANGIBLE BODY 
 
En eksperimentell film som undersøker hva som kan defineres som en kvinnekropp i vår digitale samtid. I Iran er det ulovlig for kvinner å danse offentlig, til og med animerte filmer som viser dansende kvinner blir sensurert. Denne filmen utfordrer grensene for hva som kan være en kropp, en dans eller en iransk kvinne.

An experimental film exploring the censorship of Iranian women’s dance performance and what constitutes a woman’s body in the digital age. Given that women dancing in public is illegal in Iran today – and even animated movies are censored – this film plays with the definitions of what constitutes a body, a dance, or an Iranian woman.
