Dance Is Ancient is a seven hours event, hosted by Frédéric Gies, with Fiedel behind the turntables. Together with Anton Stoianov (sculpture) and Thomas Zamolo (lights), they create ritual space for audience to dive into bodily, sensual, emotional, social and spiritual dimensions of dancing. Gies’ dance acts as catalyst for participants’ experience, Fiedel’s techno set takes them on a journey through intense landscapes. Work brings clubbing to another level, shifting the focus back to the dance floor and to the magical powers of dance.
Frédéric Gies is an artist in the dance field, based in Stockholm. He is head of programme of the MA in choreography at Stockholm University of the Arts. He creates his pieces alone or in collaboration with other choreographers (Anna Pehrsson, Jefta van Dinther, DD Dorvillier, Manuel Pelmus, Isabelle Schad, Alice Chauchat, Frédéric de Carlo, and Odile Seitz) or with artists from other disciplines (Fiedel, Anton Stoianov, Daniel Jenatsch, Andrea Keiz, Gavin Youngs). He also danced in pieces of other choreographers such as Cristina Caprioli, Jefta van Dinther, Antonja Livingstone, Petra Sabisch and Isabelle Schad. His latest works are tightly connected to techno music and to his club and rave experiences. In all of them, he collaborates with the Dj Fiedel as well as with the visual artist Anton Stoianov.
