Choreographer Cristina Capriolis’ new performance piece is a remodeled musical story about the pursuit of attention. The performance is based in the musical A Chorus Line, which in many ways challenged expectations for entertainment. A Line_up is a musical filled with swinging dance and compelling music, where a crowd of dancers stand in line to sing and dance their (and our) dreams and fears.
”I work in modern choreography, and am fascinated by the musical genre. And while I’m critical of all ”entertainment” in terms of fast consumption, conventional narratives, stereotypes and sentimental glitter, I’m amazed at the power of musical entertainment.”
– Cristina Caprioli
From the mind of Cristina Caprioli, Professor of Choreography and one of Sweden’s most productive and groundbreaking choreographers, A Line_up takes the musical A Chorus Line and changes it into something new. What we see today in terms of showing a unique personality without standing out completely on platforms like Facebook and Twitter, or contest programs like Idol, was first dramatised in A Chorus Line. The original performance provides space for an experience that dances in line with our choreography.
”All of the music is original and written by multiple songwriters like Seinabo Sey, among others. The purpose has been to try and identify and create different kinds of music for different kinds of people and not to place people in certain disciplines based on stereotypes,” said Cristina Caprioli, Choreographer, in an interview with Sveriges Radio.
