Black Diamond

Gamle Scene, Kongens Nytorv, Cph K; May 9-11; 75-495kr

The Royal Danish Theater is no stranger to Danish Dance Theater choreographer Tim Rushton – his Love Songs, which was both a jazz concert and a dance performance, was a hit there in 2011 and 2013.

Black Diamond, featuring 16 international dancers, takes place in a futuristic universe. The sensuous, energetic choreography – inspired by light, darkness and the jewel itself – is set to music by violinist Alexander Balanescu and classical composer Philip Glass, as well as famed electronic beatsmith Trentemøller. 

Black Diamond premieres at Vejle Musikteater (May 1-2) before moving to Gamle Scene the next weekend.
