Dates

July 3–4, 2021
Rachel Tess & Danish Dance Theatre

 

In June, choreographer Frédéric Gies, who is influenced by dance history, techno music and spirituality, presents their completely new work Proscenium where the sculpture park becomes the stage. The summer's second permiere is Last Dances, a performance with Danish Dance Theatre and choreography by Rachel Tess. The artist Peter Linde Busk has created costumes that partly obscure the dancer's vision to create an intense presence with the audience. With the Live Program, Wanås Konst continues its long-term investment in cotnemporary dance and choreography.

In Last Dances, choreographer Rachel Tess frames a durational performance as “the last dance the dancers will ever perform” with the members of Danish Dance Theatre (DDT). The audience might witness a solo by an individual dancer, or an overwhelming jumble of movement, as the dancers traverse the room in unison. Last Dances is a part of Generator Choreographic Fellowship – Danish Dance Theatres investment distinguished choreographers of the next generation. 

JUNE 10–13: PROSCENIUM

Dance and choreography Frédéric Gies

In association with MARC – Milvus Artistic Research Center and curator dance Rachel Tess

In June, Frédéric Gies presents Proscenium, a new solo for Wanås Konst where they explores the body's relationship to the nature, the sculpturepark, and the artworks. Proscenium, which is also the word for the framing around a traditional theater stage, consists of a number of solos for different locations in the sculpture park: each location has its own choreography and the audience can either see the individual sections, or follow along and experience the whole performance from beginning to end, as a single durational performance.
