Kammerballeten has an unusual story: the company was not founded by a choreographer, but by the Trio Vitruvi, a Copenhagen chamber music trio. The Trio's pianist, Alexander McKenzie, whose father ran a ballet school in Sydney, came into contact with both chamber music and ballet as a child. He found like-minded artists and eventually combined both interests into Kammerballeten in 2018. Since its founding, the Danish company has presented world premieres of new ballet works at festivals at the Royal Danish Opera House in Copenhagen, the Dance Salad Festival in Houston, and the Taipei Performing Arts Centre in Taiwan. Kammerballeten works with leading international dancers and choreographers and combines the intimacy of classical chamber music with the topicality of modern ballets.
