Jump


TARGET GROUP: 12 years and older
DURATION: Approx. 50 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; run 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 to bearing your mistakes to a degree where you might eventually end up succeeding.

JUMP will premiere in Copenhagen on 5 September 2019.
