KONTRA is a dance solo investigating the state of being in control - or the lack thereof.
With our complex brain and nervous system that binds the whole body together, we humans are able to control our body's movements and this opens up countless possibilities to us.
What would happen if each body part were able to control itself and had a will of its own?
In KONTRA, Cecilie Schyth Kjær creates a scenario in which her body parts take over and thus decide where she walks and how she moves through space. KONTRA portrays the peculiar conflict between an autonomous body and a dancer's attempt to regain control over it.
