Slowfall opens doors to mystical landscapes choreographed through a series of images that come to life in front of the audience. In his 2008 solo Spångberg explores affective intensities through which the spectator become a producer rather than receiver of experience. This calm, almost hypnagogic dance brings the viewer to worlds beyond reason, to places where causality is out of sync and time unfolds without measure. However, beneath the serene surface a darker entity makes itself heard, a reverberation from the un-world.
