North Arena Rumble Game dives into the explosive meeting of unrelenting primal forces and the human experience.
By introducing dance to The Turmoil, N.A.R.G.’s gigantic custom-built balance board, the terms and means of physical expression and meaning are drastically rewritten in DON GNU’s performance N.A.R.G. - North Arena Rumble Game.
To harness the stage’s massive presence, N.A.R.G.’s four dancers and combatants must shed all superficial physical expression when they vie for power or seek mutual balance and harmony. Their struggle leads the audience into a roller-coaster ride of pure emotion ranging from the close and intimate to explosions of naked frustration and violence of extreme visceral power and stunning choreographic and visual clarity.
N.A.R.G. had its premiere on the 30th of October 2014 at Bora Bora Theatre for Dance and Visual Arts in Aarhus.
"The balance board masterfully transformed into a battleground for power struggle."
"They excel with entertaining and wildly equilibristic acts of balance and physicality."
Vibeke Wern, Berlingske Tidende
"Brimming with joy of movement and inquisitive nature."
Kirsten Dahl, Aarhus Stiftstidende
