This is what we can do – Nikolaj Hübbe, Artistic Director of the Royal Danish Ballet
Every year, with 15 to 20 dancers of the company, we do a “running summer ballet”. We install a platform and pitch our tents in the countryside somewhere in Denmark. We perform for free. As a national company, we are state supported and therefore, this is part of our duties. Last summer we went to a refugee camp. There were two little boys, 5 years old maybe. They were tiny and beautiful, holding hands. The two children had been around all day looking at the costumes. They were fascinated by all the equipment, the sets, the stage.
Summer evenings in Denmark can be chilly and humid. One of the principal dancers were complaining about the weather and the cold. “Why are we here, in the middle of nowhere?” Then she saw the two boys, whose huge eyes were popping out. She looked at me: “Got you. I know why I am here tonight. These two actually are the reason why I do this job”.
This is what we do.
We are a National Company and we need to give back to society.
