Frost

Recoil Performance Group

Dance performance made together with Danish Dance Theatre, Tina Tarpgaard (choreographer), and Ole Kristensen. All the software that generated the scenography with one projector, was created by me and Ole over 1 month using openFrameworks.

In 2010 the show won a Reumert for best dance performance, and has been shown several times in Copenhagen, and has been on tour to Amman (Jordan), Düsseldorf (Germany) and Århus (Denmark).

“….. eminent, exemplary, imaginative, poetic, humorous, enchantingly beautiful, showing Tarpgaard’s unique talent for meaningful reconciliation between dance and interactive technology.” ✶✶✶✶✶ Vibeke Wern, Berlingske Tidende

“The choreographer Tina Tapgaard fuses steps, music, light and computer graphics more originally imaginative and fascinating than we have seen until now.” ✶✶✶✶ Henrik Lyding, Jyllands Posten

“The dance performance ‘FROST’ is a transformation of the most beautiful.” Anne Middelboe Christensen, Information
