Beyond

Magnetic dance at the highest level.

Astounding magic and poetic dance that will move you to tears. The choreographer, acrobat and dancer Yoann Bourgeois’ creations have soul and an enormous heart, touching all aspects of what life is about. To achieve magic, Yoann’s works are often based on a close collaboration between himself, the set-construction engineers and the dancers.

The French choreograph duo Wang Ramirez – Honji Wang and Sébastien Ramirez – combines dance styles like hip hop and popping with martial arts, contemporary dance, physical theatre and acrobatics. Their previous works have been performed at prestigious venues such as the Sadler’s Wells in London.

Neither Wang Ramirez nor Yoann Bourgeois have previously created a piece for an ensemble the size of GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. Beyond will be an astonishing, endlessly surprising programme that will challenge our dancers to break new ground. High above ground level, in fact!

Introductions

Verbal introduction

All dance performances (except premieres and guest performances) are preceded by a verbal introduction. Welcome to listen and get a wider insight into the choreographer’s process and inspiration, collaborations with artistic teams and dancers, and more.

Introductions start 1 hour before the performance and last about 20 minutes. They are presented in Swedish and held on the Small Stage.

Free admission with performance ticket. Limited seating.

Physical introductions

GöteborgsOperans Danskompani offers the participatory format of physical introduction to all interested in deepening their insight into the company’s performances. Physical introductions are led by dancers of the company and held in English.

These 45 minute physical explorations are a way of entering and experiencing various choreographic approaches, movement principles and aesthetic signatures. The physical engagement of audience members allows for a different perceptual contact with the performance.

We invite all interested audience members to join us. No previous knowledge required. Comfortable clothes and shoes advisable but not obligatory.

More info and dates will be announced soon.

Free admission with ticket, limited number of places – max. 60 people per occasion.
