HAIL TO THE GOOD LISTENER / NEW DATES IN 2021

9-12. june Takkelloftet

- A work by the conceptual choreographer Marie Topp, known for challenging dancers’ conventions

 

This year’s GENERATOR offers a completely new work by the Danish choreographer Marie Topp (Chosen for the Danish Arts Foundations talent program ‘The Young Artistic Elite’).

 

Marie Topp is known for her ability to stimulate the audiences’ imagination through movement, light and sound. Her works are based on a precise concept with the purpose of leading the audience into a hyper-concentrated state where the viewer is challenged. For example, in her previous work LIASONS, Topp critically reflects upon how our perception, such as the importance of sight and the power of our gaze, is influenced by social and political structures. On the other hand, in THE VISIBLE EFFECTS OF FORCE she explored the concept of force by interacting with four fans. Marie Topps choreographic practice revolves around the feministic potential of working with the body and providing space for the lessons learned outside of language.

 

Danish Dance Theatre is looking forward to this collaboration with Marie Topp, who to a great extent challenges the traditional framework of theatre.


GENERATOR –Choreographic Fellowship
The company’s ongoing venture GENERATOR is a curated evening, where one or more up-and-coming choreographers have the chance to create contemporary works in collaboration with the company’s dancers. In this way, these choreographers have the ability to develop their artistic ideas and individual choreographic styles.
