Kitt Johnson

World premiere

Brand new piece by the unique Danish dancer and choreographer Kitt Johnson.

Dancer and choreographer Kitt Johnson is one of a kind on the Danish dance and performance scene. For more than thirty years she has been developing her own, very particular, artistic universe; a universe that is at once minimalist, expressive and innovative. Her work is characterized by an extreme body control and a unique feel for simple but effective stage effects, and she uses these effects to create intense, physical and visual transformations that explore the deepest layers of human existence.

Kitt Johnson has a background in elite athletics, modern and contemporary dance, contact improvisation, butoh, martial arts and German expressionist theatre. As a dancer and choreographer she has worked with Mark Tompkins (F), Nobert Stockheim (D), Sacha Waltz (D), Anita Saij (DK) and other leading figures in these fields.
