Norwegian choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen is part of a generation of artists who have given dance in northern Europe a unique and remarkable signature. In just over a dozen years, her company, zero visibility corp., has established itself as a creative crucible for duets and ensemble works marked by high-energy choreography with a theatrical touch. With Again, Johannessen has partnered with Swedish composer Marcus Fjellström to compose a powerfully evocative visual score. On a multilevel set punctuated by folding screens, the dancers seem to float weightlessly. A flow of energy propels them along a fascinating continuum: floor moves, dazzling lifts, shadow play—Ina Christel Johannessen’s language is rich with shared discoveries and masterful execution. Repeating the same movements, revisiting the same emotions, Again emerges as a unique and cohesive work.
