About recoil performance group

recoil is a Copenhagen based performance group, led by choreographer Tina Tarpgaard. and working with choreography and cross aesthetic performances.The kinaesthetic interaction with the scenographic elements in which the choreography exists, has been a consistent interest in her work. In her early performances through digital trompe-d'oil projection and later in more sensorial analogue universes where light and sound becomes concrete elements in motion. Thus, her choreographic work includes all elements present on stage, regardless of its presumed function. Her work was awarded the National Danish Performing art Award (REUMERT) for Dance Performance of The Year with FROST (2010) and LIVING ROOM (2012) and was nominated in the same category with ON/VOLT (2014).

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’
