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, as the scene moves from dingy realism right to the edge of kitsch, night club cruising.

“The whole idea with Love Songs was to create something which was straightforward and that played around with conventions, but at the same time being choreographically demanding and challenging – both for the dancers and myself as a choreographer. Jazz in itself is a powerful statement, and I’ve discovered that it gives something new and theatrical to my choreography.”


The music is composed of cherished jazz classics from the good old days. Originally sung by Ella, Louis, Billie and Sarah, and now reinterpreted by Denmark’s great

jazz artist Caroline Henderson.


Come and enjoy an evening dedicated to love – a celebration of life!
