Listen to Corpus
Corpus Podcast is a podcast about art, artistic processes and the potentiality within progressive art. Starting from its own artistic practice Corpus explores what is going on in dance right now - often supplemented by an interesting guest.
Corpus is a current dance company and an autonomous part of The Royal Danish Ballet. Corpus consists of six dancers and a creative team directed by Tim Matiakis. Corpus’ main stage is A-salen behind the Old Stage.
Our ambition is to help shape the future of dance by presenting performances and events where the physical potential is in focus. Furthermore, it is our aim to be a growth centre for progressive contemporary art within all genres.
In Corpus, we are concerned with how thoughts and ideas become physical actions embedded in the society we live in. We believe that dance is for everybody, that the audience is our most important collaborator and even the smallest action is the way forward. Corpus wants to develop dance and continue to surprise over and over again.
In the year that has passed Corpus got its own entrance to A-salen at the Old Stage. This will be the gate to casual and sensuous meetings between the audience and the art. With the new company, Corpus will push the boundaries within dance and open up for debate, analysis and learning. Here, nothing is sacred and everything is debatable. Come as you are, wearing a dress or rubber boots, or maybe both – here, we drink from the bottle, the bar is cheap, the experience is yours and you are warmly welcome!
