International modern dance in Louisiana Sculpture Park. 


Experience Danish Dance Theatre’s international dancers in Louisiana's beautiful and legendary Sculpture Park, where 60 works created by international artists such as Jean Arp, Max Ernst and Joan Miró are displayed.

 

With a panoramic view over the Sound, Danish Dance Theatre will be performing Tim Rushton's critically acclaimed 'End of Loneliness', an excerpt from 'Red' by the Swedish choreographer Örjan Andersson, as well as an exerpt from 'Blinking' by Danish Dance Theatre's dancer Fabio Liberti.

 

Tim Rushton's critically acclaimed work 'End of Loneliness' was originally created for Beijing Dance Theatre's dancers, but this time the piece will be performed by Danish Dance Theatre's international dancers, to music composed by Mathias Friis-Hansen.

 

Örjan Andersson is one of Sweden's most interesting and established choreographers, and his critically acclaimed choreography 'Red' is based on the sad, painful and disturbing tones of Shostakovich's 8th string quartet.

 

Last, but not least, 'Blinking' by Fabio Liberti. The piece won the 3rd prize at the Copenhagen International Choreography Competition 2013.
 
The performance lasts approximately 45 minutes without intermission. Admission is free for Louisiana’s visitors.
