Well, here’s a thing. My friend Emelie Enlund is a choreographer who has taken the Dark Mountain manifesto as the starting point for a whole practice of ‘uncivilised dance’. We got to know each other when she was part of the Dark Mountain Workshop which I hosted at Riksteatern in 2015-16 – and now the latest phase of her project is on stage at Dansens Hus in Stockholm, under the banner of We Love Holocene IV (12-13 April, 2017).
That’s the official trailer from Dansens Hus – and here’s another video from an earlier phase of We Love Holocene, a residency at Skarpnäcks kulturhus in Stockholm last year.
Of all the unexpected consequences flowing from that text which Paul and I wrote almost a decade ago, I can’t think of one that’s more unexpected – or more pleasing – than that our words should feed into work like this.
