The Pieces That Fit

“The Pieces That Fit” is a contemporary dance piece based on the speech by Aristophanes as presented in Plato’s symposium, The Origin Of Love. It is a current investigation of how and why we love – a story of two who has been torn apart by violent forces and now search for their other half. 

With a cast of 6, the piece was premiered at Chisenhale Dance Space in November 2016 with original music by Zosia Jagodzinska.

“Very striking and praiseworthy are the performers’ dynamics developed by Kristiansen – with women lifting women, women lifting men, and vice-versa. Perhaps the exploration of love in theatre is always met with open arms, yet the choreography, filled with animalistic contortions and beautifully formed lines, truly provides an engaging and exciting dynamic.” –  Gender in Dance
