Two innovative works about self-sacrifice and natures victory over the artificial, with music by DEN SORTE SKOLE & a collage-inspired set design by the artist Sergei Sviatchenko
‘Nattergalen’ (The Nightingale) is a double bill created by some of Denmark’s most sought after contemporary choreographers; Sebastian Kloborg and Alessandro Sousa Pereira, both of whom have just received the Knights Cross of the Order of Dannebrog (2018). The duo Den Sorte Skole have composed the music and the Danish/Ukranian artist Sergei Sviatchenko has created the set design.
Sebastian Kloborg’s work is based on themes and motifs from both Oscar Wild’s novella ‘The Nightingale and the Rose’ and H.C. Andersens immortal classic from 1843, ‘The Nightingale’, about natures victory over the artificial.
The second part of the performance is created by the Brazilian choreographer Alessandro Sousa Pereira who reinterprets the paradoxical and heartbreaking story ‘The Nightingale and the Rose’ by Oscar Wilde. Among other things, Pereira is inspired by the original theme of meaningless and brutal self-sacrifice.
