Elevator explored how body, audio and video are dealing with creating spatial representation of time. Elevator is a hypnotizing and spontaneous composition taking its point of departure in the dynamics arising between quiescence and motion. The integration of live video, music and dance creates an associative flow that manipulates the understanding of time and space. Impulse movement are made visible, hidden and slowed down in different ways and challenge our capabillities for apprehension and understanding. The shooting and projection of the dancer`s movements occur in a contionous here and now, where the body functions as a junction between past, present, and future

Press:
" Rarely is choreography and video as well coordinated and simultaneously so correlatively challenging as Kreutzerkompani`s new work Elevator...At its best it triggers an almost electrical tension both in and between the three outstanding dancers..They positively tremble with keen experience, and fill the stage with a physical presence that is both deeply personal and original and yet synchronously fundamental... and as the different components augment and enhance each other, they ultimately open huge, flashing moments of pure insight." (Anette Mürrer, Dagbladet, 23.03.2003)

Elevator #2 2005

A second version of Elevator was presented in Kunsthallen in Bergen and at Coda-Oslo International Dance Festival in Oslo 2005. In Elevator #2 the same spatial framework and the relation to live video is kept intact while interacting with a different choreography and a new musical score. Elevator #2 is exposing the environment to different material as an experiment on flexibility of the content.

Elevator 2003/5
Elevator kretser rundt forflytning, stillstand og synkronitet. Richardsen er interessert i hvordan opplevelser av fortid, nåtid og fremtid flyter gjennom kroppen - hvordan kroppen frakter, forbinder og forvalter erfaring. I møte med HC Giljes improviserte videoflater leter kompaniet etter uttrykk for forgjengelighet - hvordan enkelte opplevelser fremstår som løsrevne lommer i historien, som egne utstrakte øyeblikk.
