SEPTEMBER 1-3rd Tårnby/Copenhagen @ ‘Sneglen’
– open workshops, performances and concerts
Engaging citizens of Tårnby and nearby Copenhageners in re-thinking their connections
with the landscapes we are surrounded by, and meeting at the crossroads between urban and natural.
LAND DANCE is an adventurous artistic journey of dance and music, highlighting the unique architecture and atmosphere of ‘Sneglen’ (Kastrup Søbad).
The project is a co-creation of local and international performers and musicians as well as citizens of Tårnby.
We connect through the body, to each other, to the elements of nature, to the history of the lands,
present, past and future. We work with instant composition and dance improvisation.
The LAND DANCE project has traveled the Danish islands and countryside, and is now reaching Tårnby
We explore both in an urban and nature landscapes, with an investigative and curious
approach to human interaction with our habitat.
LAND DANCE illuminates the atmosphere of ‘Sneglen’ and the sculpture garden on ‘Sunset Hill’ across, from ‘Sneglen’, suggesting a poetic way to rediscover our landscapes by simple means; dance, movement and acoustic music.
LAND DANCE is initiated by Danish choreographer Pipaluk. Original music is played live by Italian double bass player and composer Luca Tomasicchio and international guest stars.
LAND DANCE is offers projects, open workshops and events, performances and concerts.
Our focus is the periphery of the metropole, the coast connecting the sea.
We like to involve artists and citizens in re-thinking their connection with the landscapes we are surrounded by, at the crossroads between urban and natural.
