Skid

Creation by Damien Jalet

“An outstanding masterpiece by GöteborgsOperans Danskompani” Göteborgs-Posten

“Vertiginous, death-defying dance” GT/Expressen

About Skid

The stage floor in Damien Jalet’s Skid is on a 34-degree incline. The human relationship to gravity and the resistance and abandonment bound to it is what sets the dancers in motion. This new landscape of physical possibilities creates a chain reaction of physical and emotional events – dangerous, humorous, moving.
