HØST (“harvest”) is a collaboration between Recoil Performance Group and the music ensemble Rooms of Resonance that interrogates the relationship between human beings and soil. How do we humans shape nature through labour and how does labour shape a human body? Two performers from different traditions and cultures inhabit this question in a space incorporating living crops. This forms the framework for a sensory-saturated and physical narrative about cultivating the soil and cultivating the human body. About what is natural and what is not natural. And about how we, as humans, stand perpetually in between.


Recoil Performance Group is a company set up and directed by choreographer Tina Tarpgaard. The company earned the Danish National Prize for Performing Arts (Reumert Award) in the dance category for Frost (2010) and Living Room (2012). Their proposals generally focus on sensory universes and choreographies that revolve around a specific relationship with certain parts of the set. The interaction between the dancer and the set’s parts is a constant source of interest, often with a desire to decentralise the human being from the set. In recent years, they have concentrated on researching new formats and generating encounters between humans and non-humans, creating situations to reflect on our relationships and our place in the ecosystem.
