The Program features few of the who’s who in the Dance on Film world of today and we are humbled to have the chance to have our work shown alongside them.
We are also grateful for the kind words the Festival Organisers wrote about our work in their Press Release:
The three 90-second companion short shorts produced and directed by Ingi Jensson & Heike Salzer of England provide a visual treat. In “höfn/harbor” a bright red clad dancer partners with a bright yellow structure at Reykjavik’s harbor. Trees and logs at a site north of Copenhagen form the backdrop for “skógur/forest.” In “strönd/beach” tall grasses form the common mise-en-scène for dancers on separate beaches, one in Iceland and one in Denmark.
The paper ‘The experience of space in the creative process: Bekkur/Baenk 1,2,3…a multi-locational Nordic site specific dance film installation’ will be presented by Heike at the Annual International Conference of the Royal Geographical Society-IBG in London.
The theme of the conference is ‘The geographical imagination’ and it attracts over 1,000 geographers from around the world.
The paper is part of a session that reflects on the relationship between geography and art.
We are delighted to have been offered to take part in the Moviehouse event ‘Movement Everywhere’ at the 3rd Ward in NewYork on the 13th of March 2011.
Two of our dance videos will be shown at the event and we are hoping for a lively dialogue with the public via web-cam or in person.

What is Moviehouse?
Moviehouse is an interactive screening series featuring film and video work by the city’s most intrepid moviemakers and performance artists. We project a curated show on alternative spaces throughout the city. At each screening we invite our audience into a salon-style dialogue among filmmakers, audience members and the wider community.
Jeannette Ginslov interviews Islandic cartoon artist Ingi Jensson & German choreographer Heike Salzer, 11 June 2010 at the Dansehallerne Copenhagen Denmark, about their dance video installation work that resides on several sites and cities, in a variety of formats and also on an internet platform.
Is this a work that bends cinema? If it is, how?
What traditional modes of presentation is the work challenging? Do all these formats, platforms and sites, break and challenge the viewers perception of dance video? What parameters did you change in order for these works to exist on different viewing platforms? What kind of viewing experience does the viewer have and expect or are these expectations challenged?

Our installation Bekkur/Bænk 123 has been moved within the DanseHallerne (Dance Halls). It can now be found in the lounge of the Dansens Hus (dance studios) on two 42″ screens. We encourage everyone, who has the chance, not to let this opportunity – it’s a true eye candy.
