Experience wonderful dance on a light summer evening. Prizewinning Canadian Compagnie Marie Chouinard takes over Bellahøj Outdoor Stage, an atmospheric amphitheater-style setting for world-class dance.

Radical Vitality features short solos and duets which touch on themes of humor, 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.

“We are very pleased to co-present Radical Vitality in collaboration with CPH STAGE and Bora-Bora. CPH STAGE is the curator and producer of the presentation at Bellahøj Friluftsscene. ”

In 1978 Marie Chouinard presented her first work, Crystallization, which immediately established her as an exceptional artist driven by an infectious search for the genuine. After 12 years as a solo performer and choreographer, Marie Chouinard founded her own company in 1990, the Compagnie Marie Chouinard. Marie Chouinard has lived in New York, Berlin, Bali and Nepal. Her travels, her curiosity, her eclectic studies and her understanding of various techniques allow her to explore the body in different ways. She has created more than 50 solo and group works. The works created since 1978 reflect the concerns of this surprising choreographer: her view of dance as a sacred art, her respect for the body as a vehicle of that art, her virtuoso approach to performance and the invention of a different universe for each new piece.
