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.
Here’s your chance to meet the artists and get to know each other in an informal setting in the foyer area between the two performance blocks. Let’s get together and enjoy a delicious meal from local food startups curated by Kitchen Collective while sharing our thoughts on the works we have seen at the festival.
Todays menu: Vegetarian bowl

We spend less and less time on each individual and more time on mass communication. In our digital time, everything around us seeks to satisfy our ever-growing desire for fast communication by providing us with images and shortcuts, that substitute the gestures and facial expressions. Like explores the digital communication of today and investigates how to translate the digital language into a bodily expression. In Like we see a “dancetopian” wish to express and interpret both the present and the future, and we look forward to welcoming you to experience emojis, likes and sharings on the floor by this upcoming duo.
A group of young people tries to build their own utopia, without knowing that their efforts take place under circumstances extremely controlled. Will they find a way, or are they trapped in a strictly tainted environment?
Beyond Collapse poses several questions. What does utopia consist of? Is it a memory, or is it a desire for a better future? Is it possible to create a collective hope for a new world with the codes, movements, materials, and symbols of today’s society?We welcome this performance as a “dancetopian” project that alternates between the dystopian closure and the utopian hope.
We round up the festival and four amazing days of inspiring events and performances with a big final party, which is also the celebration of HAUT’s 3 years birthday. Be ready for a night to remember and don’t forget to put on your dancing shoes.
More info on the lineup and party program coming soon.
