In FUNKIS, Abrahamsen examines themes related to the changes and vanity of the human nature. On the border between symbolics and realism, the performance refects on exposure of the body, encounters with imperfection and the dissociation from weakness. This examination is revealed on stage by two strong dancers, who balance the themes in both thriving and fearless, as well as subtle choreography. Lights, sound and set design are also important components, serving as an extention of the dancers’ inner lives, but also as external barriers.
