Shaken Mirror

Royal Danish Ballet


A new ballet from Kim Brandstrup, Shaken Mirror creates a universe of movement, video, lyrics and music inhabited by dancers between the ages of 6 and 70 years old. Accompanied by the words of the Danish Poet, Søren Ulrik Thomsen, and the music of Hans Abrahamsen, Brandstrup and the Royal Danish Ballet weave a world in which the audience glimpse fragments of relationships that reflect those in Thomsen's poems.

Bentke Møller's striking and seemingly ever revolving set is enhanced by carefully timed projections from 59, transforming the space into a continuously changing world of light and shadow.

Shaken Mirror premiered on 29.05.2016 and runs until 04.06.2016
