We are excited to present four selected performances from younger choreographers who are in the top twenty in Europa right now for this special international edition of New Sh*t. The artists behind the performances are chosen as some of the most promising emerging choreographers by the European network Aerowaves.
The Copenhagen-based dancer and choreographer Thjerza Balaj has selected the European works from Aerowaves. We look forward to announcing the performances for this very special evening– stay tuned!
About the platform
With the recurring format New Sh*t, Dansehallerne checks in with what’s new in the choreographic landscape. For each edition, a younger guest curator is invited to present a progressive program of choreographers whom the curator believes to be the artists of tomorrow!
Since New Sh*t was launched in 2020 the popular platform has been happening twice yearly. This is the first edition where we invite international choreographers for the platform.
Meet the Guest Curator for New Sh*t Vol. 6
Thjerza Balaj (She/Her) / Norwegian / Kosovo-Albanian multi-hyphenate artist, working with performance, fashion design, and film. Immediacy and intimacy are important elements in her works. Her choreographic practice deals with the female gaze, power dynamics and the uncanny. Playing with shifting intensities is a consistent approach in her seemingly hard-core yet ephemeral practice. Thjerza lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
