About recoil performance group

recoil is a Copenhagen based performance group. The group was formed in 2003 by choreographer Tina Tarpgaard and composer Pelle Skovmand, with the intention of establishing collaboration between artists across genre and borders.

The direct interaction between the dancer and the scenographic elements in which the choreography exists, has been a consistent interest in the works by recoil. In our early performances through digital trompe-d'oil projection and later in 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’
