Insomnia was the first official ‘Riotous’ Company production. Having already collaborated with Mia Theil Have and Nikola Kodjabashia on ‘Penelope X’ and ‘Sarha’ for the Capitol Culture of Europe in Guimaraes/Portugal, we decided to join forces and establish the company as a trio. The performance was closely devised by Tage Larsen, Mia Theil Have and Irene Cioni, the former two were the performers with Nikola Kodjabashia, the composer and player.
Mixing the worlds of dance, performance and circus, ‘Insomnia’ offers the audience an opportunity to appreciate all these art forms through a fusion that blurs the lines between crafts. Comical yet tragic, the performance hurtles the viewer on an emotional roller coaster.
