Royal Danish Theatre dances through the SMK

Don’t miss it! Experience art and the ball melt together when the SMK invites small ballet performances in collaboration with The Royal Danish Theatre.

In the spring, a group of ballet dancers from the Royal Danish Theatre will take on SMK. In the middle of the art they will dance a series of new ballet performances, inspired by the museum’s artworks and selected periods in art history.

The Royal Danish Ballet is the world’s third oldest ballet company. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, it originates from 1748, and in 1771 the company established the Royal Danish Ballet School which is, as well, among the oldest of its kind.

On Wednesday 28 February, the dancers Benjamin Buza and Ida Praetorious will take part in Danish and Nordic art 1750-1900, where they interpret Joakim Skovgaard’s Christ in the kingdom of the dead in a choreographic work created especially for this evening. More details are here.
