The French choreographer Clément Layes has created a performance for children, closely related to the performance for adults (ONON) also visiting the festival this year. 

A huge wooden box! 
Around, inside and on top of it a rhythmic and sonorous story unfolds. There you discover a hand, here you see a head. Has it disappeared again? What is hidden in the box? And what exactly unfolds out of it? Movements and noises repeat themselves, build on each other and disappear again. And yet before you notice it, the rhythm has taken us into another loop.

Layes is developing the first pop-up in explore dance - Network Dance for Young Audiences. The pop-up sees itself as a mobile piece that can suddenly appear both in classrooms and in public spaces. With ONONON, the choreographer concludes a series of performances in which he explores appearance and disappearance and the resulting rhythm. Clément invited children from Freie Schule Potsdam to enter into an artistic dialogue with him and his team and to exchange thoughts and ideas.

Den franske koreografen Clément Layes har skapt en  forestilling for barn, som er i slekt med voksen-forestillingen ONON som også gjester festivalen 

En stor treboks! 
Inni, over og rundt utspiller det seg en rytmisk og klangfull historie. Der oppdaget du en hånd, og her ett hode! Forsvant det igjen? Hva er det som gjemmer seg i boksen? Og hva er det egentlig som folder seg ut fra den? Bevegelser og lyder gjentar seg, bygges oppå hverandre og forsvinner igjen og like før du oppdager det har rytmen tatt oss med til noe nytt.

Clement Lays har utviklet den første pop-up forestillingen i utforskende dans - Network Dance for Young Audiences. Pop-upen er et mobilt stykke som plutselig kan dukke opp i både klasserom og offentlige rom. Med ONONON har koreografen avsluttet en serie forestillinger der han utforsker oppstandelse og forsvinning - og rytmen det gir. Clement har samarbeidet med barn fra Freie Schule Potsdam til å utveksle tanker og ideer om hvordan forestillingen skal utvikle seg. .

Clément Layes is a French choreographer who has been challenging the traditional codes of contemporary dance for many years. 
A choreographic labyrinth: ONON looks at the things and digital systems that organize our everyday lives.

Like the systems that surround us, the people who operate them are always in action. ON ON instead of OFF, in a choreography, human and non-human elements combine to form a multi-rhythmic machine. Mobile walls form a labyrinth. Following their own rhythm, the elements move across the stage as if drawn by magic. The performers follow the mechanical choreography of this inorganic body - but not without testing their limits and possibilities of resistance. Can the system be subverted from within?

Clément Layes er en fransk koreograf som har utfordret de forskjellige kodene i moderne dans gjennom mange år. 

En koreografisk labyrint: ONON setter fokus på ting og digitale systemer som organiserer vår hverdag.

På samme måte som systemene som omgir oss er menneskene som opererer dem alltid i bevegelse. ON ON istedenfor OFF, i en koreografi der menneskelige og ikke menneskelige elementer er satt sammen til en multi-rytmisk maskin. Mobile vegger former en labyrint. Ved å følge sin egen rytme beveger elementene seg over scenen som ved magi. Skuespillerene følger den mekaniske koreografien av denne uorganiske kroppen - men ikke uten å teste sine begrensninger og muligheter for å yte motstand. Kan systemet bli underminert fra innsiden?
