LEGENDS – Unforgettable works by master choreographers -premiere 2022
Marco Goecke (Germany) and Johan Inger (Sweden)
Kamea Dance Company is proud to present an evening of two of the most successful Choreographers in the world today:
MARCO GOECKE & JOHAN INGER.
The legendary rock music of Patti Smith and Tom Waits serves as the common ground for this double bill evening where rock music serves as the inspiration for two unique choreographers.
THIN SKIN by MARCO GOECKE
Marco Goecke choreography “Thin Skin” is a tribute to the punk rock icon and poet
Patti Smith, who already made music history with her first album “Horses”(1975).
Ten years after he first choreographed Smith’s song “Godspeed” in his piece
“Ickyucky” for the Stuttgart Noverre Society, Goecke transformed this and five other
compositions by the Godmother of Punk into dance.

RAIN DOGS by JOHAN INGER
It starts to rain. A dog, curious and self-confident. With its sense of smell, moves
beyond its usual boundaries, discovering what lives far away. He suddenly can’t find
his way back, the rain has washed away every trace. This metaphor is the starting
point. A world where Inger explores relationships, identity and gender. Systems that
we as individuals try and comply with, as well as rebel against, all set to the music
and voice of Tom Waits
