Shawbrook Residency Aliina Lindroos


Aliina Lindroos Aliina and her company of dancers will spend time at Shawbrook working on the final production stages of her latest Phantasmagoria, a spellbinding experience, that draws on the collaborative relationship between light and movement. The content matter derives from scientific research of trauma and the body. In this work, trauma takes the shape of ghosts which we see through recurring memories and dreams, materialising in form of dance and light phenomena. We look at how our bodies all the way to the core of DNA restore events, history and happenings. The choreography investigates these often unwanted ‘visitors’ and lingering presence from our past histories. Photo credit: Hyegeun Woo
