DRIFT or drive

Kitt Johnson X-act

With her unique sense of space and body control, the Danish dancer-choreographer Kitt Johnson has created a highly personal expression and a powerful style. Coming from a background of elite sports, Johnson began dancing when she was 24. Today she is the artistic director of the company she founded, X-act, which performs worldwide. Johnson has received several awards in her homeland, including the prestigious Reumert Award.

DRIFT or drive is a solo performance about human instincts caught between culture and biology. The work premiered in Copenhagen in 2011, and was excellently received by audiences and critics alike.
