Nadja Hjorton invited dancers/choreographers Halla Ólafsdóttir, Jessyka Watson-Galbraith, light designer Chrisander Brun, sound designer Elize Arvefjord, dramaturg Caroline Åberg, and myself to develop this performance that premiered in March 2014 in Stockholm and most recently played at Buda, in Belgium in February 2015.
“On air is a dance performance that navigates through radio broadcasting, dancing and playing in a choreographic context. Four dancers are broadcasting a radio show. Four choreographers are acting in a radio play. Four singers are wrestling. On air is dancing as radio, radio as dance, radio as format, radio as scenography, choreography as radio as something that brings people together, and more than anything On air explores different ways of being together.” -Nadja Hjorton
