Jazz Ain't Nothing But Soul,
11.–14. June

Spilles: Thu 11. Jun Fri 12. Jun Sat 13. Jun Sun 14. Jun

10 dancers, 3 musicians and the African and Caribbean origins of jazz.

Tabanka has a rhythmic, virtuoso and physical approach to jazz, focusing on the genre’s African origins - an angle rarely seen on the Norwegian stage. Now for the first time they have live music on the stage - djembe, conga and kora.

The production uses rhythm as mythology, and we are given a unique twist through live percussion and rhythmic structures which we can also relate to the Norwegian language. Voodoo forms the basis of the movement language, which we can find in ‘authentic jazz’, hip-hop, house, salsa, samba, calypso; the movements for which Tabanka is famous.
