Folk Spot: Folkens (DK)

Folkens is an ensemble with two musicians and two dancers, who are all passionate about showing and conveying dance and music in a melting pot consisting of both the new and the old. It is alive and present when the bag of close duet playing and swirling couple dance is opened up. Centuries-old traditions go hand in hand with fresh music and improvisation. Communication between music and dance in unison, and the joy of the close fusion of two art forms, brings Folkens beyond the edge of the stage. Folkens are: Kristine Heebøll violin, Kirstine Nurdug Jensen, dans, Christian Thorvaldsen, dans og Jesper Vinther, harmonika.
