recoil is a Copenhagen based performance group. The group was formed in 2003 by choreographer Tina Tarpgaard and composer Pelle Skovmand.
"The direct interaction between the dancer and the scenographic elements, has been a consistent interest in the works by recoil. From digital trompe-d'oil projection to more sensorial analogue universes where light and sound becomes concrete elements in motion. Our interest is to create choreographic work that includes all elements present on stage, regardless of its presumed function"
In her new performance TUMULT (April 11th - 24th) choreographer Tina Tarpgaard focuses on what happens between the dancers - not the dancers in themselves. She is inspired by large demonstrations like the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street - absorbed by what happens when bodies gather in tumultuous crowds.
Choreographer Tina Tarpgaard has created her first performance for teenagers. I MY MINI ME premiers on February 28th at Aaben Dans in Roskilde. http://www.abendans.dk/i-my-mini-me.php
