Bobbi Jene
Morning training

Please arrive at 09.40 for this workshop at August Bournonvilles Passage 10 (A-sals indgangen). It won’t be possible to enter the building after this time. Class starts 10-11.25.

Bobbi Jene’s work explores the intersection of physicality, virtuosity, and desire. With a focus on extremes: delicacy and explosiveness, simple and detailed, personal and political, pain and pleasure. She choreographs situations where we are able to see people behave, rather than perform. Asking artists to execute a series of tasks so difficult that it requires them to move beyond the confines of “performing”. She believes this unfiltered exposure reveals a truth in the body –where dominant and passive are married, and pain and pleasure have equal value.

With her incisive grasp of the human mind, Bobbi Jene Smith is currently a shooting star on the international dance scene. Caldera, a performance created for Corpus, garnered great attention in 2019. Now, she has choreographed an entirely new work for the royal theatre’s dancers, which is set to newly composed music by Celeste Oram.

We encourage you to continue looking after yourself & each other by getting tested regularly, keep distance, keep a good hygiene and arrive each day to practice with a valid corona pass.
