Approachable allowed 12 young adults to meet through an energetic and playful dance theatre piece. Five of the performers are from Norway/Halden Dans- og Balettskole and 7 of the performers are from Palestine/Ramallah.
Approchable focus on the immediate responses from the meetings.
Who are you? Who am I? How will we get to know each other and what does that spark off?
Personalities, energy and chemistry between the young adults inspired the choreographic process. Everyday gestures and movements juxtaposed with bigger and more physical segments including partner work shapes and forms the piece.
