This spring, you will have the opportunity to discover ‘Interpassivities’, a unique theatrical performance by Jesper Just and the Royal Danish Ballet, with music by Kim Gordon.

The Danish artist and filmmaker Jesper Just is behind the concept, direction and choreography of the show, performed by dancers of The Royal Danish Ballet. Known for his haunting installations and artistic performances, Just has created a special experience merging the disciplines of film, ballet, music and theatre.

‘Interpassivities’ is presented by The Royal Theatre’s ballet initiative Corpus, Eventiminiseret and CPH:DOX, and will be shown in A-salen of the Theatre six times in March.

A meditation on reality and fiction

‘Interpassivities’ is a cross-disciplinary performance, a unique audiovisual experience combining recorded material and live performances. Dancers on film and on stage will be accompanied by live instruments and cinematic recordings of Kim Gordon, from the legendary band Sonic Youth. The soundtrack is co-composed and staged by August Rosenbaum.

The piece explores the changes in space, labor, communication, and experience in the wake of contemporary society and technology. Inspired by “On Exactitude of Science”, a short story by Jorge Luis Borges depicting a country that created a map as big as the land itself, the performance blurs the boundaries between reality and fiction, between the experience and the illusion.


Two new dates are added: March 30 and 31
