“Some of the best I have seen by Ina Christel Johannessen and Carte Blanche. ... simply dazzling in its rich complexity.” Aftenposten
Norway’s National Company of Contemporary Dance, Carte Blanche, makes its NAC debut with the high energy, theatrical 3 O’Clock in the Afternoon. Choreographed by the award-winning Ina Christel Johannessen, the poetic work explores boundaries – those existing in minds and bodies, and across geography and politics. Performed to an electronic score, its cleverly designed set features five doors integral to the performance that open to grant passage, revealing hidden artwork, and offering glimpses beyond. As the portals open and close, the dancers struggle to overcome separation and make meaningful contact with one another.
BONUS! POST PERFORMANCE CHAT: Join Carte Blanche after the show on Friday, Feb. 22nd for a special post-performance chat to share your experience of the performance. The chat will take place in the theatre right after the show.
Performance is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes with no intermission.
