Crescendo is a dance performance where three female bodies move together, sing together, labour together, listen together.
In Crescendo, choreographer Katrín Gunnarsdóttir wants to investigate the act of humming and singing through laborious tasks and its transformation into movement and choreography through ritual and breathing patterns. She is inspired by resonance, rhythm and how labour intensive choreographies reveal the relationship between action and its affect.
Katrín Gunnarsdóttir is an award-winning choreographer and dancer based in Reykjavík. She has been presented at numerous venues and festivals in Iceland, including Reykjavík Dance Festival, Lókal International Theatre Festival and the National Theatre of Iceland. She has toured internationally with her own work since 2013, showing in festivals and programs in Europe. More on: www.katringunnarsdottir.com
