Two acclaimed and very contrasting choreographers will each create a new work for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. Welcome to a high-flying evening of dance in the border zone between dream and reality.
The power of nature, life and the body are centre stage in two new dance works that will see their world premiere in Gothenburg.
Creation by Damien Jalet
In Damien Jalet’s new creation for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, life and dance hang by a delicate thread. But hope is strong. It sweeps over us like a natural force through movement and resistance.
The French-Belgian choreographer’s first work for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, Skid (2017), was an instant success when it had its world premiere in Gothenburg. Today it is in demand for guest performances worldwide. In this new work, Jalet largely collaborates with the same team: The set design is by New York artist Jim Hodges and the costume designer is Jean-Paul Lespagnard.
Damien Jalet is a multiple award-winning choreographer and dancer whose acclaimed works are characterised by a deep interplay between choreography, costume design, set design/art and music. He has collaborated closely for many years with choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (who choreographed Noetic, Icon, Stoic) and is acclaimed worldwide.
Theatre and dance work by Alan Lucien Øyen
Don’t forget that we offer introductions on the Small Stage before all dance performances (except premieres and guest performances).
Introductions shed light on the work and the choreographic process. They start 1 hour before the performance and last about 20 minutes. Free admission with a booked ticket.
