The fifteen-minute interdisciplinary short film is based on a poem from the Old Icelandic saga collection “Edda” and tells in dance, language, music, and animation the theft of Thor’s hammer by the giant Thrymr. The humorous grotesque, in which gender roles are exchanged and established power positions are challenged, shows that the questioning of gender stereotypes is not an invention of modern times, but can already be found in the collection compiled in the 13th century. Part of the scenes will be animated by multi-award-winning Hungarian artist Katy Egely. The project is sponsored by NPN-Stepping Out section “Cinema”.
The call is open for performers of all genders, ages and body types. You should be trained as a contemporary dancer and have choreography skills, too. Influences of other dance stiles are very welcome though and may be considered in the process of collaborative creating during the rehearsals.
