dancers Manuel Molino & Jonathan Sanchez

choreography Sita Ostheimer
music Sita Ostheimer
light Barnaby Booth
length 7:30 min

You and me, we are brothers.
That's why I could easily call you my enemy. Someone who sets traps and invents obstacles in order to get me off track and make me lose my direction. You know a lot about me. More than others. But I have decided not to see you as my enemy, but as a mystery, like I see myself. That's the more challenging way. But I feel, that digging deep enough and going far enough will make me find something familiar in you. Something I trust. Something that will bring me joy. I care for you.

Female alien and female human are connecting. Ghosts and aliens and angels are communicating. But the humans try to resist listening.

Sita Ostheimer

choreography Sita Ostheimer
music Donald Beteille
light Barnaby Booth
length 31min

A mystic encounter with the forces that build your universe. The silhouette of a non-human. What is a king? Who or what do you surrender to? Molimo a journey in search of the other through legends and myths, created by movement. It allows a journey, a departure and return, both for the spectator and for the dancers. For this we often lack space in many other contexts.

If no one can see, there is nothing, and if there is nothing, there is darkness.
Nothing is dark and silent, and your certainty is everything. In nothing, you are everything. The night left and chaos broke. All is gone. Now you are all. You are the first. Every single step of yours is the creation of the next.

Mångata

created 2016 for Frontier Danceland Singapore

choreography Sita Ostheimer
music Adrien Casalis
light Sita Ostheimer
length 29min

Mångata explores the point where chaos and order interchange roles. The chaos and order that is within you, and in relation to you, me, and us. The moment when chaos recedes into beautiful harmonies, and order regresses into an uncomfortable disturbance. A sweet nightmare. A sensitive revolution. The reflection of the moon on water.

Metanoia

created 2015 for Art Lab Tou scene Norway

dancer Cesilie Kverneland

choreography Sita Ostheimer
music Adrien Casalis
light Sita Ostheimer

What does it mean to lie in a performing art situation, to trick or convince the audience to believe in something that's not true. Do we as performers have a responsibility that the information the audience get, what the audience see, is true, or do we have a responsibility to inform them if it's not? Can we serve them lies as the truth?
