Our purpose is to explore, entertain and create conversation about the quirks of human nature, relations and emotions, as well as pushing the boundaries of what choreography is or could be.
Together with creators from different artistic areas, including; dancers, writers, musicians, composers, designers and filmmakers, we identify the playful, ironic, spontaneous, absurd and create new modes of bodily expression and storytelling.
Our cross-genre art productions are preformed and shown in a large variety of locations including festivals, theatres and alternative stages. Furthermore, we work toward ensuring local and international artistic collaboration between Denmark and the rest of the world.
Our current focus is exploring the world of science with the title “Lulu goes scientific”. Here, we will explore what happens when science, technology and art meet. The first chapter, started in 2015, focuses on creative artificial intelligence especially deep neural networks.
“Happily ever after” is our latest production where we interrogate what it truly means to be two.
