Simple Moves asks how we got to where we are. How can we understand the present not only as the sum of past decisions, but also an accumulation of shadows – of paths untaken, of potentials on the horizon, of current issues unresolved? Bjerregaard conjures these shadows of his past, present, and future, and seeks to transform them into energy, into movement in new directions. By turns autobiographical and metaphysical, the work rearranges the past to find a richer understanding of the present and future, for the performer and also for the audience.

Mancopy Danse Kompagni, directed by Danish choreographer Jens Bjerregaard, has been working in Beirut, Lebanon for the last five years, building a dual identity and sense of home and place. The work, compositions by Bjerregaard and by other choreographers around the globe, seek fluid relationships with cultural and artistic structures that allow for new perspectives, greater accessibility, and global thinking.

Mancopy is in residency 4/14-4/22 at work|space Denver, offering performances and conducting outreach activities with local schools. The second international dance event curated by Control Group Productions, Mancopy’s tour offers Coloradoans a rare opportunity to engage with globally acclaimed artists working in the heart of global current events in the Middle East.
