Dansk Danseteater

Enigma, CaDance, Kridt

Oxford Playhouse is delighted to present the UK premiere of Danish Dance Theatre at the start of a major national tour.

Danish Dance Theatre is one of the foremost contemporary dance companies in Scandinavia. Led by Birmingham-born artistic director Tim Rushton since 2001, the company is in demand all over the world and performs to huge international acclaim.

With this triple-bill audiences will be treated to and captivated by Rushton‘s unique choreography, which combines the classical lines of ballet with the power of modern dance.

Enigma, with music by Mathias Friis-Hansen, layers powerful, beautiful and sensual duets as the dancers strive to understand each other. CaDance is a thrilling testosterone-fuelled competition between the 5 male dancers, driven by Andy Pape‘s exhilarating music performed live on stage by two drummers. In the award-winning Kridt(Chalk), a work from 2005 based on Peteris Vasks‘s exquisite suite for strings Musica Adventus and the texts of Ecclesiastes, a man on the verge of death remembers his life, told by the people he has known.

“Tim Rushton’s dances strike like a thunderclap.”   The Boston Globe
