 - Touring internationally with MASS and STEREO
photo: Søren Meisner

Recoil will be touring the installation MASS – BLOOM EXPLORATIONS the next couple of months together with the performance STEREO, combining dance with 3D graphics. Check out tour dates and venues at the company's calendar on the brand new website here.

In MASS – BLOOM EXPLORATIONS, one dancer and thousands of mealworms are conducting a durational choreography – an installation in which the space is slowly but visibly being altered by the worms’ digestion and the human body in motion.

STEREO is a powerful disruption of the senses. A graphic universe in 3D and an intense duet between man and woman, between reality and illusion. The space around the dancers’ bodies collapses and expands indefinitely; it curls up or slips off the stage, tempting the audience to reach out.

International tour MASS - BLOOM EXPLORATIONS: 19-21 July 2019 Welcome to the Village (NL), 13-14 Aug 2019 Ringkøbing (DK), 3-4 Sept 2019 Kiasma Theatre (FI), 12-16 Sept 2019 PlatformaFesetival (LT), 13-15 Feb 2020 The Nordic House, Faroe Islands (FO).

International tour STEREO: 6-7 July 2019 Festival Danza Nueva (PE).
