Jump

 

TARGET GROUP: 7 years and older
DURATION: Approx. 35-40 minutes
Trapped in the Air with Your Head Hanging Upside Down
Get ready, bend your knees and jump - life won't wait!
Uppercut Dance Theater and the acclaimed Israeli choreographer Ofir Yudilevitch take off from the stage floor and challenge gravity. The stage floor is replaced by the finest giant Air Floor, lifting the performance into higher spheres - choreographically as well as visually and technically. Urban contemporary dance without a safety net!
Dig Into Your Childish Joy
With a child's jumping joy and bubbling love, life takes off. But before you know it, play becomes competition and competition turns into life's hard realities. You take the plunge; jump for your life. Whether you land on your legs or stumble, or if you have the courage to get back on your feet again, time will tell.

JUMP is a performance about struggling, jumping, falling, stumbling and landing securely on your two feet again. About being or bearing your mistakes to a degree where you might eventually end up succeeding.
Introducing millenials to dance
Our recent national tour with the critically acclaimed performance JUMP, once again confirmed Uppercut Dance Theater as a company, which has a great appeal for adolescents and young adults (especially the age group 15-25). For many young people Uppercut Dance Theater’s performances act as an introduction to the performing arts. This is due, among other things, to the fact that we deal with issues that young people recognize from their daily lives.

JUMP will premiere in Copenhagen on 5 September 2019.
