The latest performance by Conny Janssen Danst, FRAMED, is a visually assembled narrative in which live dance, film footage and music converge and create a collaborative world.

In FRAMED the viewer is introduced to twelve characters, all residents from the same city. A concatenation of scenes reveals what connects them; at which point their individual lives meet without being conscious of it.

In FRAMED there is a new role for video. Conny Janssen works together with set designer Thomas Rupert and filmmaker Davide Bellotta. A 33 m2 LED screen represents the shell of the city like an abstract painting. The film images serve as a light source and sensor for the adventurous group of dancers – young talent as well as familiar faces. The music in FRAMED is a varied soundtrack that moves between crystal clear classical music and cinematic urban soundscapes.

PAY ATTENTION

Flashes of light and stroboscopic effects occur in FRAMED. This can trigger a seizure in people with epilepsy.

Video: Three Hands | Music: Michel Banabila

FRAMED presents various lives in the city: each one with its own rhythm and routine, each one with its own yearning. We create an associative universe, a fragmented mosaic in which these characters pass through, wandering around in their own thoughts and contem­plations. Right now, at this moment in time, in which we live in greater isolation than we perhaps would like to, we demonstrate that every­ one has his own way of coping with the feeling that is hidden behind our day­to­day lives.’ Conny Janssen
