THE COMPANY OFF-ROAD
MILLE LUNDT (Denmark) is a physical performer. Using her background as a contortionist, she seeks to develop new movements incorporating contortion techniques. In her personal work, she uses a realist approach to theater as a base to construct movements and her own choreographies. She tends to create realistic situations and twist them with her extreme physical language into the unreal. In 2006, Mille took the initiative, with ten other artists, to create a circus and music company “Royal Bones”. This collaboration resulted in the creation of two performances directed by Lars Rudolfsson and Niels P. Munk. Furthermore, she has worked under the direction of Cille Lansade in two creations: firstly her solo piece “Somewhere Nowhere”, selected by Juggling The Arts in 2008 and presented at the festival KIT in 2010, Copenhagen. Her second creation with Cille Lansade was with the highly respected company “Cie Anomalie” in the performance “Les Larmes Des Bristlecone”, 2013. She has worked as a dancer with the company L’A Rachid Ouramdane since 2009 performances “Ordinary Witnesses” and “Sfumato”. She is now the artistic leader of the company Off Road that has created “Collisions” 2010 and “The Intruder” 2016.
