Mature choreographers - modern ballets
The Royal Danish Ballet presents it's first staging of a ballet by the innovative, provocative American choreographer Twyla Tharp. In The Fugue, music has been replaced by the steps, pulse and sheer presence of the dancers. The floor of the stage has been especially electrically adapted so that the dancers' bodies can set the rhytm and their feet can set the beat. The dance itself tells the tale, so to speak. There are no filters, no frills.

The Fugue is accompanied by a performance of Le Bras de Mer by the up-and-coming Czech choreographer Petr Zuska, whose dynamic, graceful ballets have made his name known throughout Europe. Finally, there is the new production of a work by Dutch choreographer Nils Christe, who created Quartet 1 for the Royal Danish Ballet.

An excerpt from the Berlingske Tidende reivew of 'Three Modern Works'

By Vibeke Wern
September 3, 2005

Quote:
Den Kgl. Ballet kaster sig under overskriften »Tre moderne værker« friskt ud i fine, varierede koreografier af Petr Zuska, Twyla Tharp og Nils Christe på Takkelloftet.

Man kommer til at tænke på et idyllisk Skagen-maleri, når Caroline Cavallo og Mads Blangstrup i sandfarvede klæder til lyden af et brusende hav poserer som et typisk 1800-tals ægtepar i åbningsbilledet til danseduoen »Les Bras de Mer«. Men idyllen varer ikke længe i tjekkiske Petr Zuskas værk fra 2002. Og parret er da også fra start faretruende anbragt oven på et bord - hun siddende på en stol med ham stående ved sin side.
