Christian Lollike & Tim Matiakis:
”The Vampire Revolution”
A coproduction of Sort/Hvid & Corpus
A-Salen, Royal Danish Ballet
January 27, 2018
Corpus’ greatest hit “I Føling” based on Danish wounded warriors experiences in the Afghan wars was a cocreation with Christian Lollike and Sort/Hvid. At that time, Corpus was a company in the company where the RDB ensample participated. The inhouse company was run then by Tim Matiakis and Esther Lee Wilkinson, who co-choreographed most of the production.
Last year, it was decided to change Corpus to an independent company with Tim Matiakis as artistic director for a team of six dancers. It was planned that the group should include three dancers from the company and three dancers from outside. However, only RDB Soloist Alexander Stæger opted for the new Corpus. Most of the ensemble therefore consists of foreign dancers.
