Cold Hawaii

Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen

In the dunes of Cold Hawaii, a lonesome body is caught in a constantly moving body wave. It leaks and spills sounds, voice and movements. Weaving in and out of each other, it becomes a bodyscape, sending out vibrations form a broken heart, seeking pleasure and pause.

In Cold Hawaii, Sigrid layers text, movement and sound and aims to find the places where they cross and meet. How do they become the same and yet again different?

In 2016 Dansateliers (Rotterdam, NL) and the Spanish art centre Azkuna Zentroa (Bilbao, ES) started a new exchange-project for young, talented choreographers. During the project, two different dancemakers get the opportunity to develop a new solo for themselves. The artist that are selected for 2019-2020 are Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen (Dansateliers) and Jaiotz Osa (Akzua Zentroa).
