DANCE Denmark’19  is a 6 weeks-long cultural exchange program that is committed to engage with dance as a creative movement practice with many forms of expression. 

For this Summer, the Dance Denmark cultural exchange program will continue to push the art form of dance into fascinating new territory with multiple works on the program performed by outstanding dance students of The Ohio State University. With these public performance experience, we seek to remind us all of the power of dance and its ability to bring people together from different cultures.

 

The performance "Mosaic" includes new works by choreographers Daniel Roberts and Ann Sofie Clemmensen as well as works by participating student choreographers with a unique talent for dance making. We are exploring body architecture and geometry created through fast directional changes and bodily precision, juxtaposed by our exploration of our body in dialog with gravity through falling and lifting.

DANCE Denmark’19 er et 6 ugers kulturudvekslingsprogram der fokuserer på at skabe dialog på tværs af kulture med dansens mange udtryksformer som det centrale element. 

Vi inviterer det danske publikum til at komme og opleve dansen og dens evne at samle folk fra forskellige kulture. Det er en danseoplevelse sammensat af flere forskellige danse der udforsker krops arkitektur og geometri skabt af hurtige retningsskift og kropslig præcision, samt kroppens dialog med tyngdekraften gennem løft og fald. ”Mosaik” er et bevægelsesrigt univers, som appellerer til at holde sig vågen, være opmærksom og blive nysgerrig om kroppens udtryksegenskaber.

 

Forestillingen bestå af nye danse værker af den amerikanske koreograf Daniel Roberts og danske koreograf Ann Sofie Clemmensen, samt danse værker kreeret af udvalgte deltagende danser der viser unikt koreografisk talent.

 

Daniel Roberts is an American choreographer and educator. As a former company member of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Roberts had the opportunity to perform and create several original roles in Cunningham’s choreography. Roberts worked in Denmark as rehearsal assistant/music liaison to choreographer Kim Brandstrup and composer Kim Helweg for their work “Eidolon” for the Royal Danish Ballet. Roberts was later invited by Tim Rushton, director of Danish Dance Theater, to serve as rehearsal director for the Danish Dance Theater.

Her choreographic works have been featured both nationally and internationally, recently in Beijing, China and Puebla, Mexico.
