23-24. june 2023 at Fabrikken For Kunst og Design / Dansehallerne
thecarrierbag festival is a festival for dance and choreography that focuses on how we gather around works.
It is an ongoing artistic research between Emilia Gasiorek and Karis Zidore, materialised in spacial and atmospheric scenes – it’s a piece in itself. With a beginning and an end. An intervention, a scenography, a dramaturgs speech, a performance, another performance, and a stage staged in the middle of a big, bright and breezy space.
All these bits of the piece called thecarrierbag festival have been chosen through the bodies of the two curators. The works were curated because they triggered affective responses. It started with a tickle, crept through their bodies and ended in quite a mood.
thecarrierbag festival is a two day festival at Fabrikken for Kunst og Design with four choreographic works, three interventions, two dinners, one DJ-set, and all the in-betweens.
The festival has previously been realised in 2017 and 2019 in collaboration with Sandra Liaklev Andersen in 2017 and Stine Frandsen in 2019. In the previous editions, the festival has taken place at Danseatelier. Danseatelier has, in this way, continuously supported and framed the festival. The concept of festival has grown from the tissue of Danseatelier and the ongoing curiosity into that which holds an artistic practice. Within the context of Danseatelier, it is the physical space, the group and organisational structure that is in focus, whilst within the context of thecarrierbag festival we zoom in on that which holds pieces.
