Come as you are invites you to let go of understanding, to succumb to the unknown, getting lost and then finding a way back.
Verk choose to dismiss the big questions with a simple hand gesture. This performance focuses on the small joyous moments; the joy of repetition, the joy of patterns, the joy of finding connections and imitating the artworks of others. Basically; a panoramic display of uninhibited joy.
They invoke the work of world-renowned choreographers such as Pina Bausch, Gene Kelley and Yvonne Rainer in an attempt to transport themselves to unknown territory beyond their control and own artistic expression. Accompanied by the soundtracks of recognized Norwegian musicians, they dance to the tones of Bach's Prelude and Fugue in E-flat major, a version of an old overture developed by the French opera and ballet for their royal visits. However, The Art of Fuge has now been replaced with The Art of the drum solo. They go on dancing to John Cage's In a Landscape, a dreamlike copy of Erik Satie.
Come as you are is about appreciating art as perfection, fallibility, and honesty, or as Cage once put it: "I have nothing to say and I am saying it, and that is poetry as I need it."
