Alan Lucien Øyen / winter guests (NO)

It’s his first time at Julidans and we asked him straight away to be the opening performance. Norwegian talent Alan Lucien Øyen caught our eye when he created the show Kodak for GöteborgOperans Danskompani. It was an extremely successful combination of video, dance and theatre. In that mix of disciplines and technology, Øyen brings dance in its most contemporary form and at the highest level, while at the same time it's about something. We present his new show Story, story, die. - which we also co-produce - gladly to the Julidans public.

Truth and falsehood in times of likes and online love.

Story, story, die. is about the way we like to present ourselves better than we are. How we try to imagine ourselves in the most favourable light. The Instagram filters seem to have been invented for it, although it is off all times. Are they innocent lies, just a matter of exaggerating the story?

Together with exceptional dancers, Øyen examines the relationship between lies and love in a world where likes and hearts are conditional, depending on beauty and success. How far will we go to be loved? How long will we be able to constantly direct and reorder our daily lives? Behind that careful facade, Øyen suspects a world of loneliness and a great need for love and security.

What distinguishes Øyen is his grand approach and his monumental performances in which he often mixes dance with film and new technology. Impressive and theatrical, where the dance itself does not lose momentum. It is powerful and virtuoso, performed by dancers who seem to be able to do everything, from classical to hip hop. Øyen is not a beginner: he comes from Carte Blanche and Amanda K. Miller’s Pretty Ugly Dance Company and has been running his own company winter guests for thirteen years. Julidans is not the only one who has him in sight. The Norwegian was one of the first choreographers who, after the death of dance legend, Pina Bausch, was invited by her Tanztheater Wuppertal to create a new work for them - a great honour.
