Konstprojekt 2021

Summer Live Art

Dates June–10–13 and July 3–4, 2021
With Frédéric Gies and Rachel Tess & Danish Dance Theatre

In June, choreographer Frédéric Gies, who is influenced by dance history, techno music and spirituality, presents their completely new work Proscenium where the sculpture park becomes the stage. The summer's second permiere is Last Dances, a performance with Danish Dance Theatre and choreography by Rachel Tess. The artist Peter Linde Busk has created costumes that partly obscure the dancer's vision to create an intense presence with the audience. With the Live Program, Wanås Konst continues its long-term investment in cotnemporary dance and choreography. 

JUNE 10–13: PROSCENIUM

Dance and choreography Frédéric Gies
In collaboration with MARC

In June, Frédéric Gies presents Proscenium, a new solo for Wanås Konst where they explores the body's relationship to the nature, the sculpturepark, and the artworks. Proscenium, which is also the word for the framing around a traditional theater stage, consists of a number of solos for different locations in the sculpture park: each location has its own choreography and the audience can either see the individual sections, or follow along and experience the whole performance from beginning to end, as a single durational performance. 

July 3–4: LAST DANCES

Choreography Rachel Tess
Dancers Danish Dance Theatre
Costumes Peter Linde Busk & Maria Ipsen
With support from the Augustinus Foundation, the Bikuben Foundation, the Knud Højgaards Foundation, and the Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansens Foundation.

In Last Dances, choreographer Rachel Tess frames a durational performance as “the last dance the dancers will ever perform” with the members of Danish Dance Theatre (DDT). The audience might witness a solo by an individual dancer, or an overwhelming jumble of movement, as the dancers traverse the room in unison. Last Dances is a part of Generator Choreographic Fellowship – Danish Dance Theatres investment distinguished choreographers of the next generation. 

 

Frédéric Gies (b. 1973, works in Malmö) is a French dancer and choreographer. As a dancer, Gies has worked together with choreographers such as Cristina Caprioli, Alice Chauchat, Jefta van Dinther, and Isabelle Schad. They regularly collaborate with the DJ Fiedel and have presented their choreographies in Sweden and internationally at such venues as Berghain (Berlin), DanceWEB (Vienna), Weld (Stockholm), Skogen (Gothenburg), and Inkonst (Malmö), and in conjunction with festivals such as Impulstanz (Vienna), Zürich Moves, and Malta Festival (Poznań). Between 2012 and 2018, Gies was the program director for the Master Programme in Choreography at the Stockholm University of the Arts.


Rachel Tess (b. 1970, works in Knislinge) is an American dancer, choreographer, and curator. Tess has been a member of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, Gothenburg Opera Ballet, and the Cullberg Ballet in Stockholm. Her works have been presented by Baryshnikov Arts Center (New York), Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (New York), Dansens Hus (Stockholm), MDT (Stockholm), Dansstationen (Malmö), among others. Tess has received Birgit Cullberg Stipendium (2018) and Danish Dance Theatre’s “Generator – Choreographic Fellowship” (2020). She is the artistic director of Milvus Artistic Research Center (MARC) in Knislinge.
