World-Class Contemporary Dance & Music at Ofelia Plads
JULY 22-25, 2021
Copenhagen Summer Dance is an open-air contemporary dance festival located at Ofelia Plads Harbour pier in the heart of Copenhagen. Over the years, Copenhagen Summer Dance has established itself as a popular cultural event that draws people from all over the world to experience contemporary dance with the harbour, the Opera House and passing boats as backdrop. It is with great pleasure that we can continue the company’s distinctive summer tradition that encourages openness, new encounters and exchanges between choreographers, dancers and audience.
This year’s Copenhagen Summer Dance offers world-class international dancers. A duet from Sebastian Kloborg, choreographer and former ballet dancer at the Royal Danish Ballet, in which he will perform with Russian star ballerina Maria Kochetkova. Stephanie Thomasen, (recently Nominated “Best performance 2021” by the Danish Reumert Theatre Commitee) of Uppercut Dance Theatre presents the exciting new work “Benched”, that combines contemporary dance, breakdance and physical theatre. Finally, a world premiere by our Artistic Director Pontus Lidberg with new music by Copenhagen-based electronica duo Den Sorte Skole, played live.
