- About the artist
Ludvig Daae is a Norwegian choreographer and dancer, educated at the Royal Swedish Ballet School in Stockholm and P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels.
December 2017 Ludvig choreographed the piece Donna Winter for Cullbergbaletten’s appearance at the Nobel Banquet in Stockholm City Hall. He is currently touring his latest pieces Dance To Dance To and HYPERFRUIT. HYPERFRUIT, as well as his new piece The Viral Dance, is a part of his long term project Daae/Nordahl, a collaboration between himself and film maker Joanna Nordahl. Ludvig is also dancing in several shows by other choreographers.
When creating his own work, Ludvig always has an interest in entertainment and popular culture. He feels that dance art can benefit from having a theoretical platform to rest on and develop from, without the performance being weighted by theoretical language. Ludvig’s own works have been presented all over Europe at places like Oslo Opera House (NO), MDT (SE), Vooruit (BE), The Place (GB), Kampnagel (DE), Moderna Museet (SE), InterPlay (IT), Brut (AT), Rencontres chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis (FR), GUIdance (PT), Gessnerallee (CH), Kinitiras (GR), Quarter Block Party (IE), Zodiak (FI), Dansens Hus (NO) and Sophiensæle (DE).
