Kerstin Schellander

Solo for Two
Choreographers & Dancers:
Alexandra Wingate & Kerstin Olivia Schellander


This project is a research about the two of us
creating a solo together; It deals with the
choreographer/performer and the friend/colleague
 dynamics which exist within the collaboration.

Two equal dance artists and friends meet and by
 letting the process slowly unfold ask the question:
 Where does “the dance” come from?

By defining edges of improvised movement
and then diving deeper into it we are searching
for the ambiguity and the multiple meanings
 existing in the solo.

Kerstin Schellander is originally from Austria,
Alexandra Wingate comes from Sweden. Both of us
 studied at the Laban Dance Center where we found
 each other as friends and collaborators. We have now
 been working and researching together for over
 a period of three years.

Marks That Behold


''Marks that Behold' attempts to entice the dark and light
images of the Catholic Religion; the work explores the
dancer's interpretation of those images however the
piece does not attempt to make a statement about the
religion, that is what the audience is there for.


'The nails that bore him down
Are what pieced me back together
And though I carry the marks for eternity
They remind me to be thankful for the life I have now forever'

Rear Window/She, Moves, Me

Solo extract from ‘Rear Window/She, Moves, Me,’ a dance theatre piece inspired by the portrayal of women in films and photography: Hitchcock and Fifties retro, Pedro Almodovar, Helmut Newton… It explores rituals of womanhood, privacy vs. voyeurism and female complicité. The choreography plays around with clichés while revealing snippets of what the ‘real’ women behind the characters might be. This work-in-progress solo intends to encapsulate those themes through a more intimate and idiosyncratic language.

Choreographer: Scarlett Perdereau
Dancers: Jinji Garland & Eva Voulgari
Music: Pan Sonic, Pink Martini, Twenties Blues Songs, Laurent Garnier
