recoil performance group

recoil performance group is highly acclaimed for producing visually saturated dance performances displaying the raw energy of the dancers. The group was formed by choreographer Tina Tarpgaard in 2003, and is based in Copenhagen. recoil performance group was awarded the Danish Reumert for Dance Performance of The Year with FROST (2010) and LIVING ROOM (2012) and was nominated in the same category with ON/VOLT (2014).

The interaction between the dancer and the scenographic elements has been a consistent point of interest for recoil performance group. In TØRST, we followed the trail through digital trompe l’oeil projections. With ON/VOLT, we have entered a more sensorial, analogue universe where light and sound become tangible elements in motion. Our ongoing ambition is to create choreographic work that include all elements present on stage, regardless of its presumed function. Thus, in TUMULT the space itself is the fifth dancer.
