Absolutely childish, absolutely not simple, rather a little ingenious. This pure, naivistic idé has a broad range. Like in all good performance one gets peppered by possible ways of interpretation between smiles, grins and roars of laughter.

The Norwegians in tights are back; a colourful chain of seven bodies creeping across the floor like a bulgy turquoise-orange reptile. Baktruppen are definitely no scenic newcomers, but they act like a bunch of happy children who frankly imitate the codes of modern dance and gymnastics without worrying about their physical limitations.

What the issue is this time, I would not say, but simply report that I have never seen anything like it. The seven performers are not dancers, but they sure do move, in a lively, absoloutly off-beat way and still strangly rhythmic, with somersaults, sprawling arms and movements which for certain end somewhere else than one would expect.
It is easy to admire a playfulness that with anarchist precision manages to steer clear of any approach to dicipline or demands for completion.
