In the fall of 2018 Weld Company invited dancer/choreographer Frédéric Gies to create a choreography. The result is Tribute – a full evening choreography for 9 dancers of the company to a techno set by Fiedel. In October, Tribute comes to Copenhagen and Dansehallerne.

In Tribute, Frédéric Gies has opened up his library of dances to the dancers of Weld Company, to make dances that summon up the poetic, delicate and raw textures of past dances, utterly present as the promise of dances to come.

As I started to imagine what could be the dance piece I would make for a dance company that is “aiming to rediscover and revaluate the old institution of Dance Company”, personal memories of dances I witnessed came flooding back. Each of them is closely tied to a dancer whom I saw in the darkness of the dance floor or from my seat at the theatre. These memories, more than mere images, reappear as an imprint in my body. They are also constitutive of my dances. They are my library. / Frédéric Gies
