Copenhagen Dances

Dancing in the City

– 120 international dancers, artists and musicians  explore and transform urban spaces in Copenhagen

Dancing in the City is part of the 100 DANCERS initiative and created in collaboration with  ‘Metropolis’ – a festival for art and performance in urban space.

Our site specific events and dance installations features a great crew of international dancers, all collaborating in the creation of choreographies transforming our public spaces across Copenhagen city.

The artists travel across the city on a 100 bicycles, accompanied by live music and visual artists

Bring out your own bicycle and your picnic basket, follow the sound of Spanish opera and Indian love songs, or look for the larger than life Finish video art, Polish dance stars and Danish drag queens…

100 Dancers are coming to place near you. Follow our journeys through Copenhagen here.

If you like to make a suggestion for a place or location in need of dance within Copenhagen, please email info@copenhagendreamhouse.com

100 dancers

100 DANCERS meeting  & research  – a new international forum addressing and facilitating exchange between dancers and choreographers – in collaboration with musicians + new media artists

Conference and public events in Copenhagen 28th July – 5th August 2011.

link to 100 dancers website

Our focus is the creative process in dance, the making of events and invention of new choreographic concepts.  100 DANCERS addresses the individual artist’s need to explore on their own terms and yet contribute to a bigger picture. Our tools are improvisation and contact improvisation,  investigating the ‘now’ experience, enabling a dynamic search within questions and possible answers.

SITE SPECIFIC dance is a main theme of the 100 DANCERS project. ‘Site specific’ means creating artistic events for a specific space or place (not a theater). Both our cities and nature provide an endless source of incredible sceneries, each one with their own unique atmosphere and multitude of stories to be told.

100 DANCERS will bring dance to public places and urban environments, for a short moment transforming our habitual surroundings.

100 DANCERS research and events also take place summer 2011 in Spain and Germany.

In collaboration with Metropolis Biennale, Ponderosa, B.I.D.E, C.K.O and many more

Read more @ Urbanbotics blog (in Danish)

Danish project ‘Urbanbotics’ is a meeting between artists and designers who set out to find new ways to integrate performative technology with public space.

One of our concepts is named ‘Water Furniture’,  interactive water elements and lights designed to bring new life into urban water areas, like docks, riversides and canals.

Inner Rockstar

LAB 2011
382082722_5277fe32c5_o(2)

FIND YOUR INNER ROCKSTAR

Last lab was 4-8 JULY 2011 at Ponderosa Tanzland, near Berlin

intensive laboratory for artists working in the fields of dance, music, performance art and installations.
“do you have conscious or perhaps unconscious fantasies of playing mad electric guitar and screaming “f..k” into a microphone?”

Inner Rockstar is a workshop and performance experiment guided by Pipaluk Supernova and Andreas Bennetzen.

THE WORKSHOP
Pipaluk is teaching improvisation tools and techniques including vocal training and hands on electric instruments and microphones. Dance work and choreographic tools based on release, contact and improvisation techniques are equally integrated.

Pipaluk is exploring an open yet highly intense framework for creating multidimensional performance spaces where both audience and performers are constantly challenged to move into unknown territory.
Andreas, playing double bass and electronics, is an accomplished classical soloist who is fearless in his approach to developing and sustaining musical improvisation and role play.

THE PERFORMANCE EXPERIMENT
Based on our findings in the ”Inner Rockstar” workshop , choreographer Pipaluk Supernova propose a performance installation that involves the audience in very direct and most amusing way.

Earlier performance installations took place in Schwelle 7 and Ponderosa Tanzland in the Berlin area. “Inner Rockstar 100.998 seconds” in 08 invited the audience to join a 28 hour long experiment in Schwelle 7 (read more below), other installations in 2010 was “Bedroom Rockstar”, a 12 hour experiment, and in Ponderosa “Temple Rockstar”, an 8 hour experiment.

Inner Rockstar 100.998 seconds

This highly unusual performance concept invites everyone to live out their secret or less secret fantasies of becoming a wild one, a star, a queen, a mad guitarist, a punk singer, a boy band hero or anything else you can dream up. It only takes a few minutes to become an acclaimed rockstar in our world.

The project is a ongoing research study, diving into any possible cliche within the iconology of “stardom”, the archetypical images of men and woman engulfed in glory and divinity and serving as inspiration for identity search and day dreams
Inner Rockstar invite everone to unleash the beast within, on stage! – to play mad electric guitar and scream your heart out into a microphone. You are not expected to be able to sing or play any instrument, actually its better if you don’t!

Playing with the elements of surprise and challenge, the INNER ROCKSTAR provokes soul searching moments when astonished audience members get to direct an entire set of show dancers and band members, to decide upon preferred costumes and genré, and to be the lead singer! It doesn’t take long before it’s hard to tell who are the performers, the spectators, the musicians and the fans, and the different roles keeps transforming and interacting.

The game of INNER ROCKSTAR is incredibly entertaining, an open space inhabited by strung out characters constantly changing costumes and attempting to live out every possible cliche in rock’n roll history. The space is equipped with various electric instruments and “stages” as well as an open costume department, a cool bar and “hotel rooms”, symbolically marked and numbered. Here the stars write songs, host wild backstage parties or…
A number of rules and hidden scores make the improvised performance expand into an open space where visitors may interact and move in and out as they please while the professional performers continue to guide a progression of simultaneous improvisations and games.

Amazingly the crash bang concept of INNER ROCKSTAR produces a large number of very original “bands” and great musical outputs and choreographies. The fleeting nature of multiple flux improvisations is generating a great rush of freedom for everyone present. We laugh and take on the most impossible challenge with hardly no preparation at all, an uplifting experience that change peoples idea of what they can and can not do.

INNER ROCKSTAR generates a lot poetry and a lot of noise, being part of a NOW where practically every transformation is possible.

Water Dancers

Dancing in Water is a an extraordinary return to the original body, the floating in the womb, the sensual touch,  the subtle resistance of the floating living mass, of delicious spirals extending in every direction.
