The work borrows from the figure of the ghost in popular culture in order to research other temporalities, textures and ways of being with an environment and the Other.
In Ghosting, the ghost/dancer stands next to and accompanies, it absorbs the energy of passers-by into its body and observes through dancing. It is a foreigner and guardian, but also fortune-teller from another time. Through its physical work, it creates a mystical, restful, and sometimes disturbing presence.
The project was created upon an invitation by NorrlandsOperan to participate in the EU project Rail2Dance and was shown in the public sphere - trainstations, streetcorners, abandoned squares where passersby, the socially excluded were the main audience and sometimes participants.
The research was developed through work and performances with and by Minna Bergenheim, Louise Dursjö, Anna Pehrsson and Agnieszka Sjökvist Dlugoszewska amongst others and performed in Tampere, Wasa, Umeå, Malmö, Chemnitz and Ljubljana.
The piece currently exists as a solo performed by Anna Pehrsson and a trio with and by Agnieszka Sjökvist Dlugoszewska, Rachel Tess and Anna Pehrsson.
