This ninth edition is again a breeding ground for artistic daring. From various corners of the city we gather new talent and bundle dance, theatre and film in one programme. Bring your own smartphone and headphones for a corona-proof Winter immersion.
Fernanda Libman navigates in her dance solo a sensitive space between the real and the unknowable. In the immersive playground of Keren Rosenberg the boundaries between performers, audience and space dissolve. Giovanni Brand makes an attempt at reconciliation in a monologue about the search for his roots. Liza van Brakel plays with illusions in a poetic juggling performance. Supported by Cinedans and Summer Dance Forever, two dance films by urban dancer Smail Kanoute. And we will also inaugurate the 1rst public appearance of ICK NEXT, our Junior Company.
During the festival, five young dancers of ICK NEXT will present themselves to the audience. They will dance an excerpt from the rich repertoire of Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten made especially for YOU BETTER MOVE. Raw virtuosity, technique and a longing to be on stage meld into a spectacular introduction of a new face and body to the well-known signature.
We present a coronaproof winter programme full of wonderful surprises. And we have a surprise treat in store for all our visitors.
*Tickets sold will be reimbursed if the performance does not take place.
