I samarbeid med Kristiansand Kunsthall og Theisen/Pettersen har Ravnedans invitert Ingri Fiksdals videreføring av verket BAND til å gjestespille i Kristiansand. Shadows of Tomorrow gjenskapes for anledningen i to versjoner spesielt tilpasset verkstedhallen i Teateret og uterommet i Ravnedalen og publikum inviteres dermed inn i to helt ulike rom for å oppleve den visuelle musikken.

I Ravnedalen spilles forestillingen sammen med Ingvild Isaksens verk Lots of People.

Shadows of Tomorrow is a reworking of Ingri Fiksdal’s production BAND from 2012. With Shadows of Tomorrow Fiksdal wants to create the immersive experience of a psychedelic concert, but only through moving bodies and light. There is no music to be heard. The work investigates the potential for kinesthetic transference between performers and audience, and the latent contamination in mass-movement.

 

The performance lends its title from a track on the Madvillainy album by Madvillian and MF Doom, who are key figures within the genre of psychedelic hip-hop. Psychedelic hip-hop is characterized by complex sample-based beats, often obscure material, and abstract lyrics filled with unconventional references. Shadows of Tomorrow is originally a Sun Ra poem, and the Madvillain track also samples the cosmic head-trip of a Sun Ra movie Space is the Place from 1974.

 

The performance Shadows of Tomorrow draws from psychedelic hip-hop in its choreographic material and composition. Multiple beats move through and between the bodies in space to create numerous rhythmical layers. The light design acts as an intensifier of the experience and creates additional movement and rhythm through the play with multi-colored shadows on all four walls of the performance space.
