Choreohrapher Jefta van Dinther last visited Oslo and Dansens Hus with the performance Protagonist for the Cullberg ballet i February og 2017. He now returns in a smalle format, with dancers Roger Sala Reyner and Juan Pablo Cámara.
Dark Field Analysis calls upon the intensity of being alive by placing us humans in relation to other forms of life. In the performance, organic blends with synthetic, human with animal and material with ethereal. A long conversation unfolds between two naked men on a carpet, the topic of blood running as a red thread throughout the performance.
The performance draws its name from a branch of alternative medicine that uses dark field microscopy to diagnose systemic bodily conditions originating in the blood. But the conversation between the two men encompasses more than medical facts. Here, blood serves as an analogy for looking inwards and outwards, into and beyond our selves.
