Between the Lines

Between the Lines is a visual storytelling interpretation of seven selected quotes from Søren Kierkegaard’s writings. The photographic collages consist of underwater photographs of dancers and photographs of Søren Kierkegaard’s original writings. The combination of underwater photographs and photographs of Søren Kierkegaard’s writings create visual storytelling, where the dancers interpret and tell the story of the selected quotes. The movements of the five dancers are choreographed in collaboration with choreographer Pipaluk Supernova.

Reading Kierkegaard’s texts particularly seven quotes stroke me personally. All seven quotes describe emotional states that we all recognize: anxiety, depression, joy and despair. I used the underwater photography to visualize the emotional state represented in Kierkegaard-quotes. When I was under water I experienced being in touch with a sort of essence; the dancers inner being – their soul. The character and emotion they communicated came across so clear – strong and pure. Their bodies were floating around in a dreamy space, which i tried to highlight in the strong contrasts.
