Bryllupsmagi og kolde fødder i ny dansefest

Velkommen til en skøn bryllupsfest, hvor bruden, gommen, forlovere og brudepiger alle er førsteklasses moderne dansere og publikum er bryllupsgæster. Den internationalt anerkendte koreograf Didy Weldman og hendes kompagnidansere fra Umanoove (UK) zoomer legende og medrivende ind på den moderne verdens romantiske idéer om brylluppet, og hvordan disse ritualer, på godt og ondt, påvirker vores forestillinger om ægteskabet. Til lyden af Igor Stravinskys ballet Les Noces samt ny musik fra den anerkendte engelske folk/rock-komponist, Ben Foskett, fortolkes bryllupstemaet gennem et ekstremt fysisk og teatralsk dansesprog. The Knot, fra 2018, præsenteres i samarbejde med Tim Rushton og Dansk Danseteater.

The Knot
New dance work by Umanoove/Didy Veldman (UK)
Following ‘The Happiness Project’ which launched her company at DanceEast in 2016, Dutch born Didy Veldman’s new production is ‘The Knot’, an examination of the social and personal significance of marriage in contemporary Western society.  The Umanoove dancers interpret the theme through a supremely physical and theatrical dance language, looking at what a wedding means, how it feels, the role of ritual, doubt, religion, gender and Walt Disney. With musical sources from Stravinsky and Ben Foskett defining the inner and outer worlds which Didy would like to depict, ‘The Knot’ creates the feel of a big wedding party in which the performers are the bride, groom, best man and bridesmaids, and the audience are the guests. Set and costumes designed by Joana Dias. Lighting is by Ben Ormerod. Commissioned by DanceEast, with support from The Arts Council of England, Studio Wayne McGregor and funds from Linbury Trust, The Marina Kleinwort Trust and Beth Krasna.

Duration: 70 minutes, no interval
Recommended from the age of 15.

Leaving Rambert in 2000 to concentrate on her choreographic career, she has created a wide variety of works, from full evening narrative pieces with symphony orchestra to smaller creations as part of a triple bill.

Apart from her Rambert commissions, Didy is best known in the UK for her creation Carmen for Northern Ballet Theatre and HeadSpaceDance at the Royal Opera House as part of the company’s critically acclaimed inaugural programme in 2012, Three and Four Quarters.
