INFO

RED is a performance about extremes.

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.

“Poetic text and unusual, arresting choreography…”
THE SKINNY

“…beautifully precise, courageous and ultimately very joyful.”
TV BOMB

“Bold, expressive…profoundly moving.”
THE STAGE

“His movements, often rapid and volatile, are like a dowsing rod – or maybe a lightning conductor – that connect him with impulses…”
HERALD SCOTLAND

“…something frighteningly, gorgeously courageous…”
FEST

Carl Knif Company

Carl Knif Company was formed in 2012. After a decade of working as a dancer and freelance choreographer, Knif started his own company as a base for new productions as well as repertoire. With pieces such Hologram Walls, Claude glass and Mothertongue, audiences have learned to know the surrealistic, dreamlike, humoristic qualities of Knif’s works. His deeply humanistic message is conveyed by a highly skilled cast of dancers.
