THE RAINBOW – MYKA and RAY ROA ALONSO

in collaboration with Henrik Vibskov and Cristian Vogel
Join us on an odyssey through the wonders of The Rainbow, a universe of unexpected contrasts and sensory impressions exploring the endless shades of our inner rainbow. A contemplating dance installation inviting families and everyone to experience dance, design, and sound. For all ages, with the hope of diversity.

Three amazing dancing costumes created by Henrik Vibskov and choreographed by Ray Roa Alonso will magically transform both body and space, into moving installations and living sculptures, together with a new immersive composition by Cristian Vogel. In The Rainbow we invite the audience on a journey with the option to discover both outer and inner rainbows. We pursue the hope for a diverse future – empowering people by respecting and appreciating what makes us different. May it be age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, or national origin. But does this future exist in our imagination only? How is diversity represented in our society? How do we create a society where it can flourish? With an empowering and queer expression, The Rainbow opens up to new paths. Perhaps not the path that will take us to the treasure at the end of the rainbow – but more of an always striving attempt with glimpses of joy, where we challenge the forces of fear and hatred that continuously set limits for diversity and our inner rainbow. And just as that attempt never ends, nor do our rainbows.
