The Syncopators

National premier

We mostly know a time of the western world modelled on the capitalistic idea of progress, which has resulted in an unsustainable global situation both from a social and environmental point of view.

Based on the reflections of sociologist Rolando Vazques, Ingri Fiksdal intend to interrupt the time of public space and generate unexpected encounters with “The Syncopators”.
Five performers represent what we do not know. With their flashy costumes they cross everyday life on squares and transform cycles, habits, and flows.
They produce a syncopation, a displacement of rhythm, in an attempt to replace the one-sided vision of time focused on productivity with a free, plural and inclusive gaze.

Ingri Fiksdal's research focuses on exploring choreography as a potential field of alterations, modified states and cognitive investigations.
