Midnight Oil

from age 13 years and up | about 45-55 min

Welcome to a reality that is folksy, powerful and thought-provoking - but which above all is in a constant search.

'Midnight Oil' is a close and sincere piece where everything is put to the test. In Liz Kinoshita's work, it is impossible to avoid the enticing pulse and rhythm that both occupies and surrounds the room. Through dynamic dance and choreography, the threads of history revealing the exploitation of both human life and our planet are unraveled.

In this intensely virtuosic work, the audience gathers around all four sides of the stage. In the middle, dance and choreography arise, making the whole room come alive.

The music in the piece is created by world-renowned producer George Lewis Jr., better known as Twin Shadow.

Liz Kinoshita is a successful choreographer known for her innovative, imaginative and often singing dance performances. She was born in Toronto, Canada but has lived and worked in Europe since 2002.

Kinoshita's artistic style is characterized by her ability to mix different types of expression and techniques to create something entirely new. She often finds inspiration in music and sound (pop/rock/musical), which often leads the dancer to sing, sound and speak through her dancing. Her works are known to have an underlying tone of thought-provoking and inspirational content for the audience to carry with them.

Kinoshita's works have been performed all over the world. Her most famous piece, "Volcano", explores the concept of globetrotting and our way of life, based on the 2010 eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull. She has also been part of the artistic team for West Side Story on Broadway and created the work "Radical Empathy" for The Danish Performing Arts School.

Midnight Oil brings the audience physically close to Norrdans’ international ensemble and emphasizes the importance of music and sound in her work. Her unique style of dancing, combined with her love of music, has made her a favorite among audiences worldwide.

Twin Shadow, the stage name of Dominican-American George Lewis Jr., is a captivating music producer known for mixing elements of new wave, synthpop and indie rock into his musical creations. His evocative soundscapes and emotive vocals have been praised for their ability to transport listeners to nostalgic yet contemporary musical worlds.
