CARRYING A DREAM

CARRYING A DREAM

April 26-28, The Royal Theatre
Carrying a dream
Carrying a dream 
-A contemporary dance performance about courage and human rights,
 inspired by pioneers, such as Harvey Milk, Eleanor Roosevelt 
and Malcolm X, who dared to change the world
 

The stage is set as an empty space, a man enters and is confronted with the voices of the past. Voices that have inspired us, planted hope, given us strength and who will take us on a journey filled with poetry, passion & power.

 

The 4-time Danish Theatre Award-winning choreographer, Tim Rushton is coming back to The Old Stage with the world premiere of a new full-evening contemporary dance piece about humanism. CARRYING A DREAM is inspired by a number of thrilling, historical and political speeches that changed the world, where race, gender and sexual rights are under debate. Topics that, to this day, still arouse conflicting views, outrage and fascination.

 

Using spellbinding, poetic and sometimes brutal dance tableaus, Rushton touches upon some of the historical moments, when our rights have been challenged. Personal stories accompanied by sound, voiceovers and music, about what has been and where we are now.
