DUNKA DUNKA @ thecarrierbagfestivalthecarrierbagfestival by Danseatelier
We will host a delving into a format which partly camouflages itself into a DJ-set, a sturdy cluster of voices and a slowly melting dance concert. DUNKA DUNKA plunges into how different expressions can support each other and induce frictions between sounds and dances in a forest of clashing textures, rushes of emotions and entangled tonalities.

Den 10 maj kommer Ellen Söderhult tillsammans med Daniel Iinatti, Iki Gonzalez Magnusson, Sepideh Khodarahmi, Lisen Ellard och Emelie ”Empo” Enlund gå loss i ett format som delvis kamouflerar sig in i ett Dj-set, ett robust sångkluster och en långsamt smältande danskonsert. De kommer att dela ett utforskande av hur olika format och uttryck kan understödja varandra och pressa fram friktioner mellan ljud och danser i en skog av kolliderande konsistenser, känslosvall och texturer.
