Dance performance "LAGOM" brings the art of contemporary dance and fashion on the stage to speculate on consumption. Consumerism in everyday life, creativity and consciousness. Minimalist aesthetics in a confrontation with a perversion of excess. What is the highest level of consumption and where it could bring you? Through dance exploration, plastic experiments and various techniques of contemporary and urban dance MIJ asks these questions and comes to an unexpected answers from the side of art. One of the most essential part of our work is the outfit: its absence or presence, minimalism or overbalance, preciseness or mess. Clothes become a metaphor of the main idea and are designed by young Russian designer Mila Halizova, the follower of minimalist style, non-linear forms and restraint based on the idea of «Deceptive simplicity». What is LAGOM? We explore different cultures and their attitude to life, art, design, space, way of thinking and consumerism to find an ultimate example of relationship between human and nature, human and society, human and its inner world. Lagom is a uniquely Swedish term, that doesn’t have an English equivalent. Popular etymological translation is “around the team” meaning enough food or drink for everyone at the table. Lagom is “Just enough,” “Not too much or too little,” “Just right,” “Enough to go around,” “Fair share”. It indicates balance. The value of "just enough" can be compared to the idiom "less is more”.
