One of Northern Europe’s leading contemporary dance companies, Danish Dance Theatre, is set to wow the audience during the upcoming Bangkok’s 16th International Festival of Dance & Music 13 September – 26 October 2014.
There will be one performance of ‘Black Diamond’, a contemporary dance show, in Bangkok at 7.30 pm on Thursday 9 October 2014 at the Main Hall, Thailand Cultural Center.
The Danish Dance Theatre is the largest and the foremost contemporary dance company in Denmark. Since 2001, Tim Rushton (MBE) has been the company’s Artistic Director, and has successfully continued Danish Dance Theatre’s vision of combining the classical arts with the modern. Comprising international dancers from all over the world, its repertoire ranges from large stage productions to more intimate ones and open-air events such as Copenhagen Summer Dance at the Copenhagen Police Headquarters and Louisiana Dance at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. The company also tours extensively both nationally and internationally.
With ‘Black Diamond’ Tim Rushton returns to the abstract universe, focusing on the aesthetics and form. The scenography and lighting serve as the central elements in this full-evening work in two acts. In the first act, a diamond-shaped wall forms a massive black structure. The shiny surface reflects onto the dark stage. The choreography is tight and stringent, organized as a multi-faceted powerful organism that dominates the space. The second act’s sparkling white diamond-like wall contrasts with the dark scenography of the first act. Here, silvery white diamonds form the background for a universe in which nuances and colours become brilliant and bright.
