Dancing Shakespeare transforms traditional Shakespearean texts into short dance films. The film is then extended outside of the screen when the performer, who is situated in the room, continues the dancing live. We are happy to present for you Macbeth Act 1, sc. which transforms our assumption of what a dance performance can be.
In To see yourself from the outside two performers establish a system of verbalizing movements. The observing one defines the one being observed. To see yourself from the outside questions the traditional separation between talking and dancing, and the relationship between language and movement. The performance seems to ask who, how and what defines the self and the other. At the same time, it unfolds a particular attention to the relationship between body and mind and the physical effects of language.
What comes first, speech or action?

Solus is a short dance film that questions the striving for perfection, uniformity and streamlining. Solus wishes to address a debate on the aims and ideals of modern society with an experiment that takes current tendencies to the extreme. Solus serves as the latest in a series of artistic comments on society by Danish choreographer Simone Wierød, who uses her choreographic practice as a tool to understand and debate the present time.
We are happy to present Solus’ world premiere at Young Choreographers – The Festival 2017
“People have an inlaid feeling that they have the ability to predict the future, or if they see patterns they have a built in feeling that they’re meaningful, and a built in feeling that they can control things.”
– Leonard Mlodinow
In People, the dancers experiment with a movement based take on people's urge for knowing and predict the future. The performance investigates how people unconsciously want to assign meaning to random behavior, and how we read coincidences in the present as a pattern for the future.
We look forward to presenting this piece.
In a world of conflict, ZEMIATA seeks to bring us closer to our human nature; to our inner ritual. ZEMIATA investigates the significance of being a part of a ritual in today’s society and interprets the social and emotional aspects evolving in a group of people, who shares the same faith and the same beliefs. ZEMIATA gives us new perspectives on the global world we live in and embodies the ritual aspect of today’s society.
We end the evening with a chilled after hours, where you can hang out in our foyer after a full day of exciting events and performances.
