Wednesday 15th of April, Mancopy Dansekompagni of Aarhus left Denmark for
the Middle East tour. Mancopy Dansekompagni will present two productions in
the four countries Jordan, Syria, Palestine and Lebanon.

"The tour lasts untill April 28 and will Mancopys longest so far. One thing
is that it will be a tremendous exposure of company. It will simultaneously
launch a much more intense tour business for Mancopy," reveals Jens
Bjerregaard, artistc director of Archauz and Mancopy Dansekompagni.

Already this year, tourplans include Poland, China and Bosnia-Herzegovina.



Danish benefits from the Middle East

The Middle-East tour also makes an artistic outcome at home in Aarhus, DK:

"In the autum of 2009, I and some of our dancers shall return to the Middle
East to teach young choreographic talents. And in January 2010 some of the
most talented Middle Eastern choreographers will arrive in Aarhus and
Archauz to present their works," explains Jens Bjerregaard.

At the recent tour, Mancopy Dansekompagni will present Iconic/Ironic
(premiere: Archauz, Aarhus: 29/4, 2008) and include a World Premiere of
several editions of the concept OriginalZ in a refugee camp nearby Beirut.

The artistic director himself presented the very first OriginalZ at ARoS
museum of contemporary Arts (Aarhus, DK) 6th January, 2009.



Iconic / Ironic and Mancopy Dansekompagni will visit these cities in the
Middle East: BIPOD festival - Beirut 16/4, "MASAHAT" - Damascus 19/4, Amman

Mancopy danser sig gennem Mellemøsten



Siden begyndelsen af marts har Mancopys dansere og kunstnerisk leder, Jens
Bjerregaard slidt linoleumsgulvene på Archauz tynde, for at blive klar til
kompagniets turné i Mellemøsten.

Onsdag den 15. april sætter danserne Louise Friis, Johan Ohlson, Katri
Siipola, Taneli Törma, administrator Henrik Jeppesen, lysdesigner Kim Glud
samt koreograf og kustnerisk leder, Jens Bjerregaard sig i flyet med retning
mod Beirut i Libanon.

"Turnéen varer til 28. april og bliver Mancopys længste hidtil. Én ting er,
at det bliver en fantastisk eksponering af kompagniet. Det bliver samtidigt
startskuddet til en meget mere intens turnévirksomhed for Mancopy," afslører
Jens Bjerregaard.

Allerede i år vil det omfatte Polen, Kina og Bosnien-Herzegovina.



Også århusianerne og det århusianske dansemiljø får glæde af
mellemøst-turnéen:

"I efteråret vender jeg og nogle af vores dansere tilbage til Mellemøsten
for at undervise unge talenter. Og i januar 2010 kommer nogle af de mest
talentfulde mellemøstlige koreografer her til Århus og Archauz for at
præsentere deres arbejde her," forklarer Jens Bjerregaard.

Turen omfatter Al Madina Theatre i Beirut, Drama Theatre i Damaskus
(Syrien), Hussien Cultural Centre i Amman (Jordan), Al-Kasaba Theatre &
Cinematheque i Ramallah (Palæstina) og sidst Palestinian National Theater i
Jerusalem.

Mancopy præsenterer værket Iconic / Ironic (2008) og har urpremiere på
enkelte værker i serien OriginalZ på turnéen i Mellemøsten.
