A new chance to be captivated by these two masterpieces.

GöteborgsOperans Danskompani never resists a challenge. In Skid, the stage is raked at an angle of 34°, straight down into the orchestra pit. The slope sparks chain reactions of stunning, and strangely poignant events amongst the dancers, who are set in motion by the force of gravity. The company are united in the struggle against this downward force – and in having the courage to let go. The play of light and shadow created by the dancers on the slope creates a cinematic stream of beauty. 

Skid was a smash hit at its world premiere here last season and is now in demand for guest performances across Europe. In 2017, French-Belgian choreographer Damien Jalet was nominated for two of the top awards in the dance world – the German Der Faust award and Tanz magazine’s critics’ poll for Best choreographer.

Decadance Gothenburg

Creation by Ohad Naharin

Decadance Gothenburg by the Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin (“Mr Gaga”) is a collage from his repertoire, presented here in a version created exclusively for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.

Ohad is an icon in the dance world. As a choreographer, he has created a unique style based on Gaga, his own movement language. Decadance Gothenburg was called an “inviting hour in dance paradise” by the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter. Rarely has a dance audience cheered as loudly as when it first appeared on our stage in autumn 2017. “Brilliantly beautiful!” wrote Borås Tidning, while Göteborgs-Posten exclaimed: “GöteborgsOperans Danskompani dances masterfully, both for and with its audience. See it while you can!”
