Frost

Awarded best dance performance, Danish Performing Arts Awards, 2010 (Reumert Awards)

Frost is a story of movements which is developed and manipulated by the dancers themselves - moments of meeting compounded by sharply defined and organically vibrant graphics.

The performance is framed by a video scenography consisting of movement sensitive graphics. The combination of choreographic material and delicately "choreographed" video scenography is the core of this performance, where the warm intensity of the body contrasts with the frozen imprints it leaves behind.
