Established in 1981, Danish Dance Theatre is the foremost contemporary dance company in Scandinavia. Led by Birmingham-born artistic director Tim Rushton since 2001, the company is in demand all over the world and performs to huge international acclaim. We are delighted to welcome the company to the UK for the first time to help celebrate their 30th Anniversary.

Rushton’s unique choreography, which combines the classical lines of ballet with the power of modern dance, captivates audiences and can be seen in all three pieces of the show.

Enigma, with music by Mathias Friis-Hansen, layers powerful, beautiful and sensual duets as the dancers strive to understand each other. CaDance is an exciting testosterone-fuelled competition between the 5 male dancers, driven by live music by Andy Pape. In Kridt (Chalk), an award winning work from 2005 based on Peteris Vasks’s exquisite suite for strings Musica Adventus and the texts of Ecclesiastes, a man on the verge of death remembers his life, told by the people he has known.
