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.
"For me dance is a journey into myself and also a way to come closer to others. I believe in movement as a channel through which we can touch not only the physical, but the conscious and subconscious self. Dance has the power to bring us into contact with the fundaments of being human, or living -and therefore of life itself" - Carl Knif
