Duration 40 mins
Chambre froide… weaves a trajectory between choreographic theatre and improvised music.
A woman is portrayed dressed in black and white, against a dazzling, almost aggressive, white background. Is it light from an operating theatre or a snowy winter’s day in the north? In her is an encounter between her contradictory nordic heritage and her own madness. Her piercing regard analyses, with a humour and irony exacerbated by her nordic origins, her introversion and hypocrisy; while her body and voice clearly indicate her strong link to another facet of the north: its capacity for extremes and the tension of its contradictions.
