About Cake & Consequences

”Cake & Consequences” is created by three young dancers from Tanzania; Pili Hassan, Isack Peter og Kaabuka Msamiru in collaboration with Jens Bjerreggard as coach and co-choreographer.

The performances is made with simple and physical means rather than theatrical ones – the physical presence and “risk taking” is not only to be foung in the performance, but also in the nature of the performance.

Risk is the potential that a chosen action or activity – including the choice of inaction – will lead to a loss – an undesirable outcome. The notion implies that a choice having an influence on the outcome exists (or existed). Potential losses themselves may also be called “risks”. Almost any human endeavour carries some risk, but some are much more risky then others

Direct and dynamic choreographic language is used to create a direct and consistent presence in the cohesive solo, duets and trios – In a close choreographic battlefield, the dancers mark their territories – but every line drawn has consequences. Every reward comes with a price, and every cake must be payed for – reward and price is physically due right now! The trio is created in a way, that it can be performed even in very simple locations.
The dancers from Tanzania often don’t have, what we take for granted; A dance floor often consists of shreds of old kitchen-linoleum on a concrete floor. Lamps and lightning are not always available and what is available often quite questionable. This ‘African reality’ is reconstructed on a Danish stage and we experience the performance in Aarhus exactly as it will look in Dar Es Salaam.
