The DAP FESTIVAL offers a dance experience and education to young artists in a place deeply bound to the contemporary visual arts; sculpture, set design, photography to name a few. For this reason, DAP FESTIVAL is created for the City of Pietrasanta.
"The artistic bond that throughout my career has strongly connected me to the Royal Danish Theater and the Cultural Institutes of the City of Pietrasanta, has allowed me to start this innovative collaboration for the DAP festival 2017, between Sebastian Kloborg, Kim Helweg and the Master of Sculpture Jørgen Haugen Sørensen. One of the many values of this Danish artistic triad lies in the desire to combine the artistic experience of a Master like Sørensen, whose art stands out in the international Art World for more than half a century ("his works can be read as an exploration of the continuous narrative of existential conditions of this generation”), to the sparkling, innovative and exciting young artistic choreographic talent of Sebastian Kloborg, whose dance creations are meaningfully expressed through a beautiful contemporary language outlined by strong significance. The work will be accompanied by a beautiful and intense musical composition of Kim Helweg.
