DuEls is a dance film by Grammy Award-winning film and music video director Jonas Åkerlund. It is based on a performance by Nagelhus Schia Productions at the Vigeland Museum in Oslo, choreographed by Damien Jalet (whose choreographies include Madonna's Celebration Tour) and the mercilessly powerful choreographer and dancer Erna Ómarsdóttir. In a series of short, visceral pieces in various rooms in the museum, the dance releases the concentrated energy of Gustav Vigeland's sculptures. Ephemeral, living bodies in dialogue with the inner struggles of Vigeland's immortal sculptures. (ImPulsTanz)
Produced by Nagelhus Schia Productions in collaboration with 4 1⁄2 Fiction AS and M12 Studios. Co-produced by Iceland Dance Company and The Vigeland Museum. The film is made possible with the financial support of Bærum kommune, Viken fylkeskommune, Talent Norge and Sparebankstiftelsen DNB.
