Recoil performance group

 

Recoil is a Copenhagen-based performance group, set up in 2005 and led by choreographer Tina Tarpgaard. It is one of the most firmly established companies in Denmark, earning the Danish Prize for Performing Arts (Reumert Prize) in the dance category for Frost (2010) and Living Room (2012). Their proposals usually focus on sensory universes and choreographies that revolve around a specific relationship with certain stage elements. 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.
