NORDIC SUMMER DANCE

NORDIC SUMMER DANCE

AUGUST 14-15 7PM

- World-class dance under the summer sky

 

NB The ticket sale starts the 30th of April

Over the last few years, Danish Dance Theatre has been working on the further development of the popular summer event Copenhagen Summer Dance. As a result, Danish Dance Theatre has been taking the repertoire from Copenhagen Summer Dance on tour to the rest of the Nordic countries since 2012, starting with festivals in Sweden and Finland. Once again, we will be dancing at Vitabergsparken in Stockholm.

 

Under the summer sky, the audience can experience some of the best in modern dance and ballet, curated by Danish Dance Theatre’s new Artistic Director, Pontus Lidberg. This year’s program consists of a visit from New York’s ballet star Alban Lendorf from American Ballet Theatre and The Royal Danish Ballet, two works with the acclaimed Cuban company Acosta Danza, choreographed by Pontus Lidberg and the Flemish / Moroccan master choreographer Sidi Larbi, while Alessandro Sousa Pereira presents excerpts from his critically acclaimed powerhouse ‘Krash’. Also on the program is Stephen Shropshire’s beautiful trio, Lamento Della Ninfa (The Nymphs Lament) to the music of Ane Brun.


About Nordic Summer Dance
The Park Theatre in Vitabergsparken has space for 3,000 spectators and for 75 years has celebrated the summer by presenting free theatre, music and dance events. Every year during the summer, Stockholm City Theatre’s ‘Park Theatre’ moves outdoors and into the fresh air. Dance in Vitabergsparken is a popular event for a broad audience and is widely loved. It is therefore with great pleasure that Danish Dance Theatre once again has the opportunity to participate in this well-established cultural event in Stockholm.

 

There is free entry to all the performances.
