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.
