Jefta van Dinther (DE/SE)

Jefta van Dinther (DE/SE) is a choreographer and dancer working between Stockholm and Berlin. His work is characterized by a rigorous physical approach. The moving body is centerfold in his work but belongs to and interacts with a body of light, sound and materials that constitute an environment of perception and sensation. The dancers work and dance their way through various environments. Jefta's works deal with notions of illusion, the visible and the invisible, synesthesia, darkness, labour, the uncanny, affect, voice and image.

Jefta Van Dinther (SE): The Quiet

The Quiet brings together five women in an unsettling choreography of the ordinary. They are quiet in action, set in motion by expressions of oral traditions. Reciting, chanting and praying, they forcefully move into and out of defined and defining patterns, propelling the quotidian into transcendence. By calling attention to that which is transmitted across generations, The Quiet engages with time in some of its overlooked forms: the taking of time, the passing of time, the falling out of time.

Together with his longstanding collaborators Minna Tiikkainen and David Kiers as well as Cristina Nyffeler, Jefta van Dinther continues the intertwining of space, sound, light and body that characterizes his choreographies.
