THE SHOW : AVATAR ME

You suddenly find yourself in a fruit market in Johannesburg. Or maybe you’re sitting on a tuktuk on your way out of one of Mumbai’s busy streets. Or you’re cooking in a small village in Moldova. Someone you don’t know speaks to you and for a moment you don’t know who you are. You look down at yourself and see another body. You speak, but you have a different voice. You are not yourself anymore, you are someone else, in another life, somewhere else in the world.

With AVATAR ME you buy a personal 1:1 live performance, where for 45 minutes you will go and live another person’s life, somewhere else in the world. The performance is a live-streamed “first-person” experience, where for a moment you influence the actions of another human being, somewhere else in the world. You will be placed in a completely new environment, make new friends and perhaps experience something you would never have experienced in your own life. In an age where we all spend most of our time in isolation and where encounters with the rest of the world are limited, AVATAR ME sends you on a very different and personal journey beyond borders. It is a very personal experience with the closeness and interaction you know from the theatre and yet something completely different. The international cast is from South Africa, Brazil, Moldova, India and Malaysia.

★★★★ “An eye-opening, intimate and empathic experience”, The Stage UK

★★★★★ “In AVATAR ME you can taste the food from the sizzling pans, pet a puppy while looking deep into its eyes, and with your pulse pounding create 45 minutes of escapism you won’t soon forget.”, Sceneblog.co.uk

★★★★★ “Theatre? Can it be called theatre? I’ve certainly never experienced anything like it.”, Kulturen.nu

Upcomming dates: Bergen Festspillene 27. – 31 May 2022.

Duration: 60 min

THE COMPANY: FIX&FOXY

Fix&Foxy has produced work for little more than a decade – theatre, performance art, social interaction, immersive installations etc. Their work is driven by curiosity and a desire to create complex narratives through playful, entertaining, and easily accessible formats while challenging our – presumptions and misconceptions about ourselves and the world we live in. By sharing stories about people who make up society and address the times we live in, Fix&Foxy wants to engage with the world.

Like us at CPH STAGE, they believe that performing arts play a vital role in society and can make a difference.

Fix&Foxy forms a team for each production and is privileged with a large group of creative artists. On a daily basis the company is run by artistic director Tue Biering, producer Karoline Michelsen, Communication Officer Camilla van Norde, and international producer Annette Max Hansen.

INTERNATIONAL STRATEGY

Fix&Foxy globalize their practice from process to presentation; Through special formats that use local casts; by touring and co-producing with international venues and involving artists worldwide in collaborative processes. They create meetings across all sorts of borders. They are currently roaming in the North, Germany, UK, and France and squinting towards Eastern Europe and Canada, however, since working with global topics, interested in interacting with the world at large. Most importantly, Fix&Foxy want to create great, fruitful relationships while cultivating the existing ones.

FORMAT AND SUSTAINABILITY

We work with different concepts of which some are eco friendly. Avatar Me is an example of carbon print light theatre where all international performers stay in their country while both rehearsing and performing and all audiences stay at home while attending the performance. We also work with concepts where we anchor the performance locally by casting locally and by doing so we only need to move around the creative team. We are constantly working on live digital concepts and developing tools in order to cope with global challenges and sustainability.

MY QUIET HOME

YOU CAN SEE THIS SHOW DURING CPH STAGE INTERNATIONAL DAYS 2022:

  • Thursday 09 June at 20.00
  • Friday 10 June at 20.00

A snapshot of a contemporary as well as historical state of war, created through dance in a unique collaboration with three Ukrainian dancers, Kateryna Kuznetsova, Yekateryna Bysheva and Oleksandra Maksimchuk, who fled their homeland due to the war.

It is a dance performance where powerlessness, sadness and uncertainty are inevitably present. It is also a tribute to the indomitable courage and strength of women and the female community – both near and far, across global borders and generations.

‘My Quiet Home’ is a poetic, moving and powerful dance protest against external forces that, despite their cruelties, cannot stop these women from taking to the stage and dancing.

LIMBO is the abyss of doubt, the stronghold of uncertainty, the zenith of transition.

OCEANIC

YOU CAN SEE THIS SHOW DURING CPH STAGE INTERNATIONAL DAYS :

  • Tuesday 07th June 6.00pm
  • Wednesday 08th June 2.00pm

THE SHOW: OCEANIC

OCEANIC is a solo performance by choreographer Marie Topp and composer Julia Giertz, in collaboration with light designer Mårten K Axelsson and dramaturge Igor Dobricic. OCEANIC is a reflection on listening and a feminist study of the hierarchies of sounds.

Handcrafted masur bowls are spread across the stage, following nature’s own form with their unique and organic shapes. A woman is floating in a hallucinogenic sea, moving through what becomes a mythological landscape. She is evoking the past and present, voices and memories. OCEANIC has an original, immersive sound set-up, including custom-made mechanical string instruments. Together, the protagonist, the sounding sculptures and the light create an embodied space for careful tuning and wild listening. It’s a performance for an adult audience, and could be particularly interesting for those with a special interest in choreography or/and experimental music.

Duration: 50 min

THE COMPANY: MARIE TOPP & JULIA GIERTZ

Marie Topp (DK) and Julia Giertz (SE) met at The National School of Performing Arts in Denmark (2005-2009) – since then they have maintained a close artistic dialogue. During the last ten years they have been continuously involved in each other’s artistic projects as colleagues and collaborators. Often in collaboration with lighting designer Mårten K Axelsson and dramaturge Igor Dobričić.

The performances can be experienced as spaces of force, emotion and imagination that allows for the complexity of the senses to unfold. The body and the imagination are placed as central to the experience and the production of knowledge. The works are characterized by the coexistence of their practices and a shared interest in the craft of composition.

Oceanic is the first piece that Topp and Giertz co-sign.

INTERNATIONAL STRATEGY

OCEANIC is a performance that is produced and prepared for touring. The work is presented at and co-produced by Dansehallerne and the Swedish network Slingan (MDT, Atalante, Dansstationen). It was selected and will be presented at ICE HOT Nordic Danceplatform in July 2022.

We wish to create new collaborations with international partners and wish both to tour this performance and find new strong collaborations for future projects. The company is especially interested in meeting people with an interest in presenting experimental music and choreography.

FORMAT AND SUSTAINABILITY

The company is especially interested in meeting presenters and new collaborators who are situated within train distance (10 hours) to either Stockholm or Copenhagen where the artists are based.

The Company uses trains as transportation when it is possible.

M.I.S ALL NIGHT LONG

YOU CAN SEE THIS SHOW DURING CPH STAGE INTERNATIONAL DAYS: 

  • Thursday 09th June 6.00pm
  • Friday 10th June 8.00pm

“M.I.S. – All Night Long” takes measure of modern man. What’s up? And how is he really doing – underneath those woolen socks and comfy sandals?

In a hard-boiled mix of jackass stunts, slapstick comedy and raw physicality three men get off the fence; Out of their comfort zone to come to grips with their inner beast, the Latino lover, the pushover, the best buddy – and all the others – in a quiet battle for a man’s right to be himself.

The performers take the stage on a backdrop of wacky film projections and live club music that comment and frame the characters’ physical endeavors – all night long!
