FEST!!!

FEST!!! -meaning party in Danish- is a dance piece for children about life’s peculiar party, for three dancers, one performer, a musician and a tuba.

FEST!!! is motivated by letting go of learning through specific themes, and giving children (and adults) an experience which is fundamentally about ”being”, and is of a more aesthetic and intuitive nature.

”Through imagination the child ”plays” chaos into its logical world for it to develop”. (Froda)

This is beautifully contrary to what you would generally expect, which is that we need to play logic into chaos. In this sense the quote speaks of life in general, and especially about what the Arts can bring us: Room for the chaos, that develops us.

Common to the images and scenes of the piece is a statement of ”being”. That it is enough and goal in itself. Images without aim or reason. Images you don’t understand but recognise, that you don’t know the purpose of, but that feel meaningful.

FEST!!! aims to meet its audience in a story that is driven like a daydream more than by reason.

FEST!!! celebrates the child existence, that wastes time and just experiences, without any goal or aim. We talk a lot about doing and making, but not so much about ’being’.
