When you stop being a child…what are you?

How do find your place in life – or even just in your group of friends? When do your feet stop growing? And who decides all these things?

These questions – and many more – are explored by five dancers in Nutshell Dance’s new work Retrospective.

Retrospective deals with topics of adolescence – unknown emotions, budding sexuality, insecurities and unfamiliar identities. Choreographer Mari Frogner explores these topics from a very personal place, combining her Scandinavian point of view with her current perspective as a choreographer working in a world where female voices are scarce.


'The harmony between the dancers is evident and overall creates a beautiful show.'
