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.

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.
