Soyez réalistes, demandez l’impossible

ABER DABEI is a creative platform and laboratory for new performing art, experimenting with form and structure. With a cross-artistic approach we are examining the space where the physical sensing body, personal storytelling and societal structures meet

ABOUT

ABER DABEI was founded in 2015 by director Petra Berg.
Based in Denmark we work internationally and interculturally with artists from different disciplines: Theatre, dance and performance-art, music- and sound art and literature etc.

In ABER DABEI we open and examine new formats for the performing arts. Each production is a result of a close collaboration between the artistic team and are based upon thorough research and development processes.
We work with strong sensory based expressions, where the body, visuals, sound and text are combined on equal terms, and where the stage itself is rethought and redefined anew, from project to project.

Our work is often situated, not only in the theatre, but also in public spaces or private apartments, in pure virtual settings or as installations at galleries. The audience is therefore often able to interact with the finished pieces.
With ABER DABEI we are processing and unfolding contemporary existential questions and trends. The core elements are found in philosophic, fictional and political texts. Through interviews and research in documentary sources. In dialogue with new scientific research. In fiction and in reality.

ABER DABEI is supported by: Statens Kunstfonds Projektstøtteudvalg for Scenekunst, Bikubenfonden, Knud Højgaards Fond, Wilhelm Hansen Fonden, Konsul George Jorck og Hustru Emma Jorck’s Fond, KODA Dramatik, Dansk Komponistforening, Foreningen af Danske Sceneinstruktører, William Demant Fonden, Københavns Scenekunstudvalg, Aarhus Kommunes Kulturudviklingspulje og Nørrebro Lokaludvalg.

We have co-produced with BORA BORA in Aarhus, Helsingør Teater and Teatergrad in Copenhagen.

Kristian Hverring

Composer and sound artist

In his work Kristian Hverring examines, how we perceive sound and how it shapes our perception of the world. The perception-apparatus and its pattern-recognising filtration-processes perhaps intervene more than we know, and for Kristian it is a main focal point as an artist, to meet the listener in “artificial situations”. LÆS MERE
