Cristina Caprioli/ccap: SILVER

29 Nov – 11 Dec 2022,

Swedish premiere for a new work by Cristina Caprioli/ccap. SILVER is ongoing non-stop during Accelerator’s opening hours. Thursday–Sunday between 14.00–16.00 and Wednesday 18.00–20.00 the installation will be inhabited by dancers performing choreographies from the ccap repertoire. Admission free. No advance booking required.

One hundred silver coats lay scattered over the floor, upon the walls and into the air
Sometimes they are inhabited by people, or children who don’t know whether to cry or play
For the most part, the coats remain empty, as if they were shells or other homeless things
Or they start dancing and demand all the attention
In a landscape that constantly shifts its horizon

SILVER is a chain of ‘images’/’scenes’ that shift one to the next every 10 minutes. More than the ‘image’ itself, it is the shift between that defines the image and turns it into a movement. Once in a while, SILVER is visited by dances from some time ago. Or dare a new direction. Regardless, another kind of diversity emerges, where every minimal difference is courted and affirmed.

The visitor puts on a silver coat and follows the shells with their eyes
Or gets into the game and constructs a ladder
Stays for a just a moment or a whole day
Talking quietly and listening to the dance
