It's a busy week for JSK!
The Kitchen performs Thursday to Saturday at ZeBU in Copenhagen, including being the opening performance of Amager Børneteaterfestival on Saturday. A Dance Tribute to the Art of Football is headlining In2It International Dance Festival in Sunndalsøra, Norway. And last but not least, it is the final week of rehearsals before our brand new production The Virus opens at La Fabrika in Prague on Monday 17th October.
Which is the more important priority: the society outside or the friend next to you?
After 10 intense days with technical rehearsals at Bærum Kulturhus, the cast of The Virus is now preparing for departure to Prague and world premiere at La Fabrika!
The Virus takes place in a near future where something has gone terribly wrong. A small team sees the opportunity to solve the problem and give the world a restart. However, a small interpersonal dilemma puts their noble cause into question. Which is the more important priority: the society outside or the friend next to you?
This production marks a return to a formula which has been hibernating for nearly a decade: the nonsensical melodrama. The blend of intriguing storytelling, extroverted gestures, nonsensical language, and large portions of dance is by many considered to be the company’s core signature, implemented as a solid reference through touring in almost 60 countries. Not only does the company experience a growing demand for this original and unique genre, it’s also what’s closest to the company’s heart.
After a really lovely and successful visit to ZeBU in Copenhagen and their Spring Festival earlier this year, The Kitchen now returns for five performances both for schools and the general public this week. On Saturday we are thrilled to be chosen to open Amager Børneteaterfestival. The Kitchen is our first production made specially for children and it has performed more than 300 times since the premiere in 2013. We are also excited that this production has managed to excite an international audience, with performances both in Finland, Iceland and Denmark.
We are also very happy to be headlining In2It International Dance Festival in Sunndalsøra, Norway with A Dance Tribute to the Art of Football. In addition to the performance, our dancers will be holding of a workshop for young dancers during the festival.
