The finest in contemporary dance

Liikkeen legendat

An excellent opportunity to gain an overview of the finest in contemporary dance in the 21st century.

An excellent opportunity to gain an overview of the finest in contemporary dance in the 21st century.

If Leave is to Remember by choreographer and dancer Carolyn Carlson, winner of a Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale, is about the moment of parting: its pain but also its positive impact.

Little Monsters, a duet created by Demis Volpi to Elvis’s music in 2011, received an award for best choreography and was the audience’s favourite in a distinguished competition in Canada.

Episode 31 for 20 dancers by young Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman has dazzled audiences for instance at the Chicago Dance Festival in 2013.

Jorma Uotinen’s dynamic tribal dances for 12 male dancers in Jord were also excellently received at the Royal Danish Ballet in 2005.
