Cultural Learnings for Make Benefit Dance

"Emphasis is often placed on the tendency of the grotesque to challenge established authority, to undermine the hierarchy of values accepted in a given epoch and to reject its aesthetic code. As a result of the above, the grotesque work defies unequivocal interpretation. Realising that his/her efforts to comprehend the universe portrayed in such a work are futile, the viewer is left with the feeling of enlighten emotional discomfort."

In the following short visual Opus entitled: "Renseiw:Cultural Learnings of Nord for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of New Modern Dance" good old Sam captured some exuberant ritual dance moves mourning the exit of a beloved Nordic institution, featuring the use of table forks. View the rambling by clicking here or mouse-in the dance floor above. (patafilm #300, 02'28'',11 MB, Quicktim/mov - Flash version for PC at

tremendous performance, looks cathartic, perhaps almost an exorcism of sorts

well, in some way it was... closing party for nordscen, a fantastic institution that linked theatre, film, performance and dance individuals/groups through workshops, seminars and cross-over projects in the nordic countries.
it has been closed now. something new of the sort might emerge, in the future.
