A physical dance concert with music by Anisette Koppel
X-mythologies is a physical concert with choreography by the Reumert-winning choreographer Tina Tarpgaard, newly composed music by the award-winning composers Lars Greve / Aske Zidore and with the vocals of one of Denmarks rock history's greatest voices: Anisette Koppel. Together they have created a performance with Black Box Dance Company's young dancers.
For decades, Anisette Koppel has inspired, touched and excited with the passion that is expressed so sharply through her voice. In the performance X-mythologies, the composers Lars Greve and Aske Zidore have been inspired by her sound and from brand new footage of Anisette Koppel’s voice they have created ten singular works, each of which contains a story expressed through the many colors of the vocals. The ten songs are the starting point for a physical concert where the young dancers from Black Box Dance Company are the bodily “Band” on stage. Bodies that merge with the music and perform the intensity of the raw voice and allow the rhythm to create complex patterns in the body’s relation to each other and to the audience.
In X-mythologies, a “Band” of dancers will welcome an experience of new tones and movements that unite the energy of the dance and the music. A work that collects generations and genre with new composed music and choreography. The visual framework of the production is created by the interaction designer Inbal Lieblich and light designer Andreas Buhl.
