THE IMPORTANCE OF EYE AND MIND GRASPING LARGE SCALE PRODUCTIONS
This is a conversation about the artistic choices that lies behind creating large scale theatre works. All three Danish companies – Hotel Pro Forma, Dansk Danseteater and recoil performance group – have a significant international practice. What are they doing in the new works – and why do these works from an artistic point of view need to be large scale? Furthermore what kind of sustainable strategies do they employ to make large scale work reach international audiences?
In discussion: Kirsten Dehlholm & Jesper Kongshaug (Hotel Pro Forma), Pontus Lidberg (Danish Dance Theatre), Tina Tarpgaard (recoil performance group), Lynanne Sparrow (Canadian Stage – CA)
