Dandizettes are bloodthirsty beings who embrace the idea of the self without hesitation or second thought.
Blood is fresh produce and pure energy. In a context of dance and choreography, the blood can be inspiration, affirmation, creativity or energy from the audience. An eternal blood hunt and an escape from the confrontational life of the day ends with carefree intoxication and partying at night. With Dandizettes, Wigdel explores how the blood hunt can become a picture of the addictive relationship between the performer and the spectator.
Ida Wigdel is a professional dancer and choreographer from Norway. The choreographer and dancer in her are indistinguishable, and she firmly believes in the synergy between her partners and the audience. Her expression is characterized by a complex physicality and strange absurdities with certain elements of darkness.
