Landscape with Figure

An expressive dance performance about man in connection with nature

Man and nature are connected, inseparable, unavoidable. Landscape with Figure shows people in this interplay. Eight dancers from all over Europe confront each other in this triptych. To pumping, industrial sounds we see man who forms and creates, who fights and submits (part 1: Man against nature). Then, in a completely different color palette, we see the beauty of nature around us; how man is an organic part of it and enjoys every movement and all shapes and colors. (part 2: Man as nature). In the end – in the last part – we see how vulnerable humans ultimately are. How do we find answers to the questions we have? (part 3: Searching for balance).

Beauty and menace

In three parts, Ivgi&Greben show the beauty and threat of nature. The dancers change shape; the stage landscape changes with it. Landscape with Figure is an ode to man who constantly relates to nature.

“With their full-length performance Landscape with Figure, the choreographer duo Uri Ivgi and Johan Greben dare to reach high. It shows a lot of bravura to start with a rousing first part and then to end via a dynamic middle part with a fairly quiet conclusion.”

“Everything flows seamlessly into each other, thanks also to the eight dancers who are completely convincing, both collectively and individually. You have to hand that to Ivgi and Greben: they know how to forge a wonderful unity of the multitude of scenes.”
