During the pandemic in spring 2021, 31 people were given a unique encounter on the Göteborg Opera’s Small Stage.

Each of the dancers in GöteborgsOperans Danskompani had prepared a creation meant to be performed just once, for one person. The results were shown in a series of short films on our streaming site gofilm.se.

Now dancer and spectator meet again to talk about their shared experience.

Experience these encounters on gofilm.se.

Episode 2

Sabine & Flavia

A conversation arises about time and farewells when Sabine Groenendijk and Flavia Messina meet again.

“We shared time with each other. That is why the performance came to life. ” — Flavia

“There are two ways to pass time. Either you see yourself as a still point and time passes through you. Or you see time as a still point and you pass time.” — Sabine

Valērija & Pär

Valērija Kuzmiča and Pär Berggren marvel at the wordless communication that arose between them. Even though he was sitting on a chair and she was moving, both were involved in the piece.

“Had we had this conversation right after the performance, I would not have been able to speak. Now, when a few months have passed, I can express what I experienced. ” Pär Berggren

“Your presence changed the performance. The way you moved, looked at me, your expression. " Valērija Kuzmiča
