Carl Knif Company: RED
In our everyday lives we often dance on a knife-edge. Carl Knif's solo RED is an intimate portrait of an individual struggling with an inner red alert.
RED is a performance about extremes – not always dramatic, but full of personal courage.
Carl Knif’s RED is presented at the FinnAgora Festival Hejsan Budapest!
Carl Knif belongs to the very forefront of Finnish dancers. After a decade of working as a dancer and freelance choreographer, Knif started his own Carl Knif Company as a base for new productions as well as repertoire in 2012. Knif is also known as a former dancer in Tero Saarinen company. With pieces such as Hologram Walls, Claude glass and Mothertongue audiences have learned to know the surrealistic, dreamlike, humoristic qualities of Knifs´ works. RED has received outstanding reviews from the international press and was chosen among the best dance pieces at this year´s Fringe festival in Ediburg. Knif has been performing extensively abroad. He has performed in Sweden, Great Britain, France, Russia, South Korea and China, to mention a few. However, this is the first time Carl Knif performance is seen in Hungary.
