Control and cover of the female head and body

When we dance, what do you think is typically feminine and masculine behaviour? What happens to our old-fashioned gender roles when women are performing the heaviest and most extreme moves in FRIKAR's new project with only women on stage?

Clothes and physical movements has traditionally been used to control women in Norway. The hijab entered where the traditional Norwegian head covering, skaut, left. The hijab is optional for many but not for all, and this reflection on traditional head overing is the main focus for choreographer Hallgrim Hansegård and five female contributing dancers. In SKAUT they are looking at the complex and historic thematic of covering up and controlling the female body. With their hair both up and let down, the dancers in SKAUT present unique, modern dance combined with wild, Norwegian traditional folk dance. 

SKAUT is a new and down to earth performance with sky high ambitions from FRIKAR. 

Premiering 28th February 2020 in Bærum kulturhus.
