HIGHLIGHTS PERFORMANCES 2018

WHEN CPH STAGE FIND PLACE 31.MAY – 9. JUNI 2018 IT WILL BE WITH OVER 90 PERFORMANCES AND EVENTS IN THE PROGRAM WITH MORE THEN 40 IN ENGLISH.

In order to help the audience navigate at the big festival program, we have yet again set up a Highlights Committee. The Highlights Committee’s job is to find trends and show the audience the way to some of the artistic lighthouses that deserve special attention. Some of this year’s highlights is available for English speaking.

ELLEN HILLINGSØ, CHAIRMAN OF THIS YEAR’S HIGHLIGHTS-COMMITTEE SAYS:
“I’m incredibly proud to present this year’s highlights performances. CPH STAGE is a corner of great theater experiences, so it has been a challenge to find only eight performances but these eight performances in each case are something out of the ordinary. As an actor, you must be brave and bet yourself. Every time you stand on stage. My call to the audience is: Be brave! Take a chance and throw yourself into new theater experiences and genres. If you are unsure where to start – start with the highlights of the year.

A WINTER’S TALE by Republique (subtitled in English)

HYPE OF THE YEAR: Corpus
The Highlights Committee has chosen to hype dance company Corpus this year. With Corpus, you can experience a dance company that is at the forefront of most and in rapid development. Here are experiments and body in focus. Corpus is a dance company that insists that dance is for everyone and that the audience is their most important partner – or as they say, “Come as you are, in dress or in rubber boots, maybe in both – here we drink from the bottle, the bar is cheap, the experience is yours and you are warmly welcome! ”

At CPH STAGE 2018 you can experience all three performances of Corpus:

ONE ONE ONE (non-verbal)
FALL (in English)
IT IS FINISHED WHEN IT IS FINISHED (non-verbal)
