A breathtaking evening with Damien Jalet, a choreographer who tames the forces of nature. Both his works for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani will be performed here together for the first time, as was originally intended.

Damien Jalet is a multiple award-winning choreographer whose acclaimed works weave together different art forms. The sloping angles in Skid and the winds in Kites can be glimpsed in the Grammy-nominated music film Anima on Netflix – by Thom Yorke, Paul Thomas Anderson and Damien Jalet – in which GöteborgsOperans Danskompani features.

Skid

“An outstanding masterpiece” — Göteborgs-Posten
“Vertiginous, death defying dance” — GT

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.
