Uppercut Danseteater (DK)


Shows and tickets

Luoto, Kuopio harbour (outdoor performance)
Free entry

BENCHED is a honest and a playful tale about life’s big and very small questions. About settling down. About daring to sit in opposition. About taking, creating, and giving space. 

The performance invites five male dancers to the bench, whose constant change constantly creates new, inventive positions for the dynamic dialogue between the performers. 

Award winning choreographer Stephanie Thomasen has created a street and contemporary dance performance, where great musicality, physicality and interaction are combined, without forgetting humour. 

The piece, which will be seen as an outdoor performance in the port of Kuopio, is a story about finding one’s place on the bench of life. 

Duration: 45 min

Concept & Choreography Stephanie Thomasen Performers Mark Philip/Patrick Afuale Eirup, Adam Tocuyo, Jens Schyth Brøndum, Kristian Mensa & Mahamat Fofana Set Design Johan Kølkjær
