This performance is based on the historically important neo-classical ballet ‘LIVE’, from 1979 by Hans van Manen.

‘LIVE’ has become canonized because of its at that time innovative use of live projected video, portraying the strength and weakness of the performer.

“I always had the wish to be part of something historical” was Daniel AlmgrenRecén’s starting point for his performance ‘I Live’.

He, him self born just a few weeks after the premiere of ‘LIVE’ in 1979 poses the question:

Can I become part of something that I never were by deciding that “I am”?

In ‘I Live’ he reincarnate, without any formal ballet education as the female principal dancer out of the neo-classical ballet ‘LIVE‘.
