Danish Dance Theatre presents "Black Diamond" at The Joyce
Danish Dance Theatre
After its success in The Joyce’s 2013 Ice Hot: A Nordic Dance Festival, Denmark’s leading contemporary dance company returns with Artistic Director Tim Rushton’s Black Diamond, a futuristic tale beginning with the company’s dancers performing against a diamond-shaped black backdrop that, in the second act, transforms into shining silver. The piece is set to works by Philip Glass, contemporary Romanian composer Alexander Balansecu, and Danish electronic music composer Anders Trentemoller, with sounds ranging from tempo-filled electronic beats to lyrical tracks to the just plain noisy. All of this contributes to this startling exploration of the duality of experience and of hope making its way out of darkness as dancers move in light and shadows across the stage.
