Performance with Janne – Camilla Lyster

As part of the exhibition Noa Eshkol. No Time to Dance, we invite you to a performance by dancer Janne-Camilla Lyster (1981*) at the Georg Kolbe Museum on August 17. The Norwegian choreographer, writer and performer is known for her 2020 PhD entitled Choreographic Poetry: Creating Literary Scores for Dance. Her work combines movement with various methods, including scores, experimental notation and notation systems for movement.

Janne-Camilla Lyster studied contemporary dance at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts until her bachelor’s degree in 2006. Since then she has published novels, plays, essays and numerous volumes of poetry. In her solo work Time and Solitude, Janne-Camilla Lyster takes Noa Eskol’s dance suite Angles and Angels from 1990 as her starting point. The dances in this suite are characterized by the meeting of the emotional and the mathematical. Based on one of the complex geometric floor patterns of this suite, Lyster’s solo is configured by the solitude of the encounter with the written choreography, which simultaneously creates a space for action: a space for contemplation and realization across time and place. The solo is conceived as a movement object without scenic effects for the museum and gallery space, in which the moment can unfold in the encounter with the audience.
