Radical Vitality

Compagnie Marie Chouinard


Experience wonderful dance on a light summer evening. Prizewinning Canadian Compagnie Marie Chouinard takes over Bellahøj Outdoor Stage, an atmospheric amphitheatre-style setting for world-class dance.
RADICAL VITALITY features short solos and duets which touch on themes of humour, play and beauty. Choreographer Marie Chouinard has handpicked these pieces from the company’s 30-year history to create a new work. RADICAL VITALITY is the cherry on the cake, a must for anyone with a budding interest in dance. Originally presented at the opening of the Venice Biennale in 2018, it is now being shown in Copenhagen for the first time.

Presented in collaboration with Dansehallerne and Bora-Bora.
