Love Songs on tour in Germany

 
During the remainder of November, Danish Dance Theatre will be travelling around Germany and Switzerland on a three week tour. The company has been invited to perform on seven large stages in Lingen, Bad Kissingen, Fulda, Worms, Düren, Schaffhausen and Coesfield.

The German audience will be presented with Tim Rushton’s successful performance ‘Love Songs’, which took the audience and critics by storm when it premiered at The Royal Danish Theatre in 2011. Love Songs both describes and plays around with the idea of love. Tim Rushton has created a modern dance performance that is both warm and intimate, relating to the individuals lifelong journey to find love. Caroline Henderson sings the classics from the good old days, such as ‘Come Rain or Come Shine’, ‘To Lay Me Down’ and ‘My Funny Valentine’.

 

During this tour, Caroline Henderson will be singing live at the performance taking place at Schaffhausen in Switzerland!

 

“I am looking forward to this tour in Germany and Switzerland, where we have a large and enthusiastic audience. It’s always a pleasure to visit Germany, where I also used to dance many years ago”, says Tim Rushton.

 

There is a rising demand for the company in Germany, where Danish Dance Theatre now performs every year. ‘Love Songs’ has not only been performed in Denmark at the Royal Danish Theatre and all over the country, but has also been seen in Serbia, Hungary, USA, China, Sweden, Italy, Cyprus and Israel.

 

We look forward to presenting ‘Love Songs’ for our audience in Germany and Switzerland over the following weeks as ‘Love Songs’ is a fusion of jazz, romance and dance that both the audience and the critics are wild about.

 

The critic for Politiken gave a very seldom six hearts and said, “’Love Songs’ is a powerful cocktail with super equilibristic dancers on the loose; enough to pop the cork. As one of the old Tuborg commercials said, “The night is as black as gold”.”

 

Weekendavisens, Majbrit Hjelmsbo wrote, “Rushtons ‘Love Songs’ is a tribute to romance. Both entertaining and straightforward, but in a whirling, breathless and acrobatic choreography that demonstrates that Danish Dance Theatres dancers are world-class.”
