Engaging Copenhagener’s in re-thinking our connection with the landscapes we are surrounded by, and meeting at the crossroads between urban and natural.
JULY 15-16 th Copenhagen / Amager Øst @ PRØVESTENEN SYD
– open workshops, performances and concerts
LAND DANCE is an adventurous and artistic journey into our local environments, to the cross-fields of the urban and nature, into dance and music. Our project is a co-creation between local and international performers and musicians, inviting the audience to participate.
LAND DANCE invites Copenhagener’s to discover, or re-discover, the amazing urban nature area PRØVESTENEN SYD, on the edge of Amager. In this beautiful green and blue area, there is ocean, rocks, flowers, birds and tall grass, reminding us that we need to keep parts of our city uninhabited, yet accesable for recreational experiences.
PRØVESTENEN SYD is visible from Amager Beach, yet, for most, unknown territory. It can be reached by boat or by bicycle, and offers beautiful walks and ocean views.
In the company of dancers and musicians, LAND DANCE invites you to experience the landscapes of Prøvestenen Syd. Together we illuminate the atmosphere of chosen places, creating dreamy images, a heaven, a safe place, a place to breathe. And yes, we are still close to industrial structures, the city skyline is clearly visible, yet we are away and seeing it all from a new perspective.
We invite interested people, dancers, movers, families, people of all ages, to join us in a series of dance walks, open laboratories and performances, a playful way to spend your afternoon or evening.
See program below
LAND DANCE engage with the coastal landscapes of our cities. 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 participatory dance improvisation.
The LAND DANCE project has traveled the Danish and Italian islands and countryside, now reaching Copenhagen.
Our work is site specific, engaging with urban and nature settings with an investigative and curious approach. How are human bodies interacting interacting with our habitat, man made and nature merging and transforming.
