HØST

An unusual dance piece about the relationship between humans and soil

HØST (HARVEST) is an unusual dance-performance that expresses the relationship between human beings and soil.

The performance is produced in collaboration with two Danish villages from the western part of Denmark and is created by various artists that have a personal relationship with this region.

The piece deals with the themes of physical labour, social structures, agriculture and the political ideologies that shape the landscapes around us. The focus is on the body’s physical tilling of the soil and the intentional, as well as the unintentional ecosystems that develop in connection with the soil’s cultivation.

Recoil performance group involves local citizens as co-creators of the piece. For example, citizens help Recoil grow the crops that are used on stage. Through conversations, we will explore the different rituals and celebrations that exist around the concept of harvesting and how this is influenced by ideas of fertility, sustainability and ecology.

HØST (HARVEST) is a highly unconventional piece where you will experience a performative interpretation of the harvest of living crops on stage.
