Yoshi Omori

Två duetter is a dance performance composed of two duets, Vardag and Sense of Hope. The performance is a collaboration between DuvTeatern and Carl Knif Company.

Vardag

Vardag is a duet choreography created and performed by Carl Knif and Pia Renes. The performance contemplates the everyday through Pia’s perspective. She guides us through her routines, hobbies, and work. The structures, colour codes, and rhythms of her weekly schedule transform into music and movement. The everyday becomes poetry, the small becomes big in this intimate study of time and its essence.

Sense of Hope

Sense of Hope is a duet created by Carl Knif in collaboration with Emil Nordman and Eero Vesterinen. This autobiographical work is based on Emil’s own experiences of loneliness and exclusion. Despite the dark theme, however, the performance wants to evoke light and warmth through text and dance. Can we be reconciled with our pasts? How might we find our way back to the light? These are the questions posed by the performance.
