During Sommerszene the station forecourt is transformed into a large, continually moving sculpture of bodies and objects. The young choreographer Ingri Fiksdal presents the Salzburg premiere of her Diorama series in which she stages particular views of natural and urban landscapes in different cities and contexts.
The word “diorama” often refers to a three-dimensional model of a landscape, such as displayed in museums of natural history. Another use of the word is for the French diorama theatre invented by Louis Daguerre in 1822, where the audience sat watching big landscape paintings transform through skillfully manipulated light, sound effects and live performers. In her Dioramaperformances Ingri Fiksdal uses choreography as a lens through which she alters or interferes with a particular view and its context. These interactive interventions reflect in a way that is both suspenseful and sensual on the passing of time, on the slow change in landscape and scenography as an ecological practice of bodies both human and non-human. The music is composed by Norwegian musician Jenny Hval and sonic artist Lasse Marhaug, and shifts from a drone-like echo, to a punctured, industrial noise, to indecipherable whispering voices drifting into the landscape.
Norwegian Ingri Fiksdal’s plays delight with their formal aesthetic and successful blend of dance, sound, lighting and costumes. Her projects present a penetrating and striking examination of the theme of movement as collective and affective action. Following her performance at PNEU 2016 she now makes a second visit to Salzburg with the internationally successful Diorama. Diorama Salzburg. Die Stadtversion is a pre-presentation of the original panorama version, which will be shown in fall 2019 in brut Vienna.
