Marta & Kim

Kim-Jomi Fischer (1985) and Marta Alstadsæter (1990) met in 2015. Their different background, one is a contemporary dancer and one a circus-artist, sparked into a blooming collaboration. Since their first encounter they have been creating their own movement vocabulary, diving into the possibilities and qualities they find within they interplay.  They create work that goed beyond the frames of their original disciplines but that starts from the physical communication between them.

In 2017 the duo was invited by Dansateliers to take part in One Night’s Dance. Here they created the short duet As much as it is worth. In 2018 they further developed their existing piece Engel that premiered as an eveninglength piece in Harstad, Noorwegen and Podium Bloos, Breda. In 2018, Kim & Marta were awarded with the BNG Bank Dansprijs voor the concept of Engel. As part of this prize they toured the piece along with DansClick 18-19. Engel was then selected for Aerowaves Twenty19, and will continue touring nationally and internationally in 2019. In 2019 Marta & Kim were nominated for the Prijs van de Nederlandse Dansdagen 2019. They will continue researching in Dansateliers for future work.
