Adam Linder is known for his innovative and interdisciplinary approach to dance and performing arts. He has gained recognition for his work in the field of choreography, collaborating with various artists and venues like MOMA in New York. His works are visceral and intuitive, with a unique approach to the body and rhythm combining the earthy, industrial, classical and urban.

Linder’s new work is created and choreographed in close collaboration with the dancers of Danish Dance Theatre. The piece will be an exciting journey into a parallel universe where we are witnessing an evolution experiment inspired by the public “operating theatres” of the 16th-century England. The performance is structured in four parts. Here we encounter the hybrid primal/animal bodies that evolve into mechanical bodies and further into thinking, spiritual individuals. Ultimately the bodies transform into a social, dancing community —celebrating dance as the highest pursuit of humanity. The set design is created by architect and set designer Deniz Celtek and will consist of flexible modules that can surprisingly transform and reshape the stage as the performance unfolds.
