Jefta
van Dinther

is a choreographer and dancer working between Stockholm and Berlin. His work is characterized by a rigorous physical approach and always implies a staged research of movement itself. The moving body is centerfold in his work but belongs to and interacts with a body of light, sound and materials that constitute an environment of perception and sensation. The dancers work and dance their way through various environments: their processes exhibited live on stage become performances. Van Dinther’s works deal with notions of illusion, the visible and the invisible, synaesthesia, darkness, labour, the uncanny, affect, voice and image. They often play with formats of presentation and range from traditional dispositifs to installation like settings as well as from smaller intimate performances to large scale productions.

His work includes the performances Protagonist (2016) for Cullbergbalett, As It Empties Out (2014), Plateau Effect (2013) for Cullbergbalett. In addition to that Jefta van Dinther has created the choreography for and dances in the music video Monument (2015) by Röyksopp & Robyn and has organised and curated the festival LIAISON (2015) in Stockholm. Van Dinther teaches choreography at various international centres and educational programmes. He was appointed Senior Lecturer and Artistic Director at the MA program in Choreography at DOCH (University of Dance and Circus in Stockholm) between 2012 and 2014.

„One is as if transported through the dust of time, in a tranquil dream and of a great richness, on the verge of reaching a truth which always escapes, finally opening up to an infinitely poetic prophecy.“ — Thomas Adam-Garnung, Ballroom Revue

The Quiet brings together five women in an unsettling choreography of the ordinary. They are quiet in action, set in motion by expressions of oral traditions. Reciting, chanting and praying, they forcefully move into and out of defined and defining patterns, propelling the quotidian into transcendence. By calling attention to that which is transmitted across generations, The Quiet engages with time in some of its overlooked forms: the taking of time, the passing of time, the falling out of time.

Together with the dancers Lisa Drake, Kristine Slettevold, Alexandra Campbell, Agnieszka Długoszewska, and Cecilia Roos as well as his longstanding collaborators Minna Tiikkainen, David Kiers, and Cristina Nyffeler, Jefta van Dinther continues the intertwining of space, sound, light and body that characterizes his choreographies.
