The Nordic Beasts is a dance theatre group that aims to produce, facilitate and support high quality Nordic dance theatre. The company operates under the artistic direction of choreographer Noora Hannula (FI) and has currently seven collaborative artist members: Julie Rasmussen (NO), Elín Sígny (IS) Sophia Mage (DK/US), Ida Duelund (DK), Helena Wilhelmsson (SE), Belinda Larsen (DK) and John P.G. Jónsson (IS).
Together we aim for The Nordic Beasts to be a dance company that keeps on exploring new ways for making dance theater and creating platforms, while tackling modern day topics in an innovative way.
A Nordic Beasts production can be characterized by an eye-catching visual style, physically merciless choreography and themes reflecting on the digital age, often served with a hint of absurdity.
This residency is supported by the Nordic Residency Exchange Programme.
