Agenda

From Mon 11.12.17 Dance
  • Marco Berrettini

    At fifteen Italian-German choreographer Marco Berrettini was the German disco dancing champion. Since 1986 he has been creating his own, often controversial work: from performances in museums, to video installations, to total concepts... In the internationally acclaimed iFeel2, Berrettini analyses man by having his dancers repeat the same theme again and again, like bare-chested marathon runners. The bizarre silvery bushes, bluish twilight and exhilarating music make this duet a surprising trip.… Read more

  • Latifa Laâbissi

    Eccentric French dancer-choreographer Latifa Laâbissi is a product of the Merce Cunningham school, and has danced with, among others, Boris Charmatz. Her Adieu et Merci is a tribute to a ritual that actually reappears after every performance: the adieu – the bow. In this solo work, stage designer Nadia Lauro moves a magnificent purple curtain. The interaction between this colourful 'living' décor and Laâbissi's heart-warming greetings transform the stage into an impressive tableau vivant.… Read more

  • Batsheva Dance Company

    +32 70 22 12 12

    Gaga is a form of movement with no fixed patterns, developed by Ohad Naharin, artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company. Gaga helps the dancer to build up flexibility, strength and endurance. This allows the dancer to unleash the potential of his or her body, learn to move instinctively and gain insight into conscious and unconscious movement. Imagination and the opening up of the senses play an important part in this.… Read more

  • Ohad Naharin & Batsheva Dance Company

    Ohad Naharin, choreographer of the trend-setting Israeli Batsheva Dance Company, trained actress Natalie Portman for her ballet role in the film Black Swan. The New York Times called him ‘one of the most fascinating dance makers on this planet’. His choreographies are described as sensual, evocative, compelling and moving. Identity, conflict and survival are his favourite themes. Last Work is a performance about people who are ‘different’, individuals standing out from the unity of the group.… Read more

  • Vincent Dupont

    The work of the French choreographer and theatre maker Vincent Dupont has an intensity that lingers. In the solo work Hauts cris (miniature), he evokes an oppressive atmosphere that makes loneliness physically tangible through an ingenious interplay of light, scenography and sound. It is the danced response to Tragiques, a poem by 16th-century writer Agrippa d'Aubigné about the massacres during the Wars of Religion.… Read more

  • CCN Ballet de Lorraine

    Flemish-Swiss Cindy Van Acker opens this exciting double bill with her ELEMENTS I - Room, a dance performance that revolves entirely around the idea of limitations. It is the first of a series of pieces that Van Acker intends to devote to the geometric principles of Greek mathematician Euclid. For his piece, leading Spanish choreographer Marcos Morau drew his inspiration from surrealist Luis Buñuel and his fondness for dreams, social criticism and the traditional Spanish folk drum.… Read more

  • Christian Rizzo / ICI – CCN Montpellier

    In D'à côté three unidentified creatures undergo metamorphosis in a moving landscape. Dancers and strange creatures enter into a dialogue with light and sound and invite each other into their own universe. After his dance trilogy D’après une histoire vraie (2013), Ad Noctum (2015) and Le syndrome Ian (2016), choreographer Christian Rizzo wants D'à coté to encourage everyone - regardless of their age - to extend their horizons and fantasise about a magical dream world.… Read more

  • Béatrice Massin & Compagnie Fêtes galantes

    With her passion for Baroque dance, French choreographer Béatrice Massin is sometimes called ‘a musician of space’. Her latest creation Mass B – to excerpts from Bach’s Mass in B minor, partly rearranged by sound artist Emmanuel Nappey – is a carefully balanced interplay of Baroque and contemporary dance. The result is an energetic dialogue between the individual and the group: the Art of the Fugue, but in dance.… Read more

  • Raimund Hoghe

    In La Valse choreographer Raimund Hoghe works his magic on another iconic work from music and dance history. Following on from Sacre, Swan Lake, Boléro Variations and L'Après-midi, he has chosen this time for Maurice Ravel's La valse, from 1920. Hoghe uses both the orchestral and the piano version, performed for us live by Guy Vandromme. He also integrates other waltzes.… Read more

  • Olivier Dubois Company

    French choreographer Olivier Dubois’ performances always have an infectious and energetic, but subtle power. That drive is reflected in the workshop the company’s tutor, Jacquelyn Elder, offers to children and their accompanying adult. Its basis is Auguri, a performance in which Dubois explores the dynamics of a group in motion. Running to or away from each other, swarming out like a whirlwind, ready to fly. Dancing power and poetry for families.… Read more

  • Olivier Dubois

    In 2015 Olivier Dubois - the enfant terrible of the French dance scene – closed December Dance with the hypnotic performance Tragédie, a bruising battle for eighteen naked dancers. In Auguri he explores the fate of humanity through dance. To the energetic and mechanical music of François Caffenne, eleven women and eleven men jump, run and chase, like a flock of birds. A panorama of human existence, sometimes ominous, sometimes utopian.… Read more

  • KOPERGIETERY & Cas Public

    In 9, Beethoven's masterly Ninth Symphony is central: an exceptional musical masterpiece that Beethoven only completed after he had gone completely deaf. Choreographer Hélène Blackburn takes an atypical dancer as her starting point: Cai Glover. Cai is also deaf. How do you grasp a musical masterpiece when you can’t hear it? How do you experience or understand the world when one of your senses fails?… Read more

  • Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker / Rosas

    Achterland is a seminal choreography in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s oeuvre. In this 1990 performance, for the first time, the choreographer gave the musicians a central position on stage and let them play an active role in the overall dynamic—an approach she would repeat in many subsequent projects. The unusual combination of György Ligeti’s and Eugène Ysaÿe’s music inspired De Keersmaeker and her dancers to create an original dance score with a delicate balance between energetic virtuosity and deceleration. This also was the choreographer’s first time writing dancing material specifically for men; she added three male dancers to what until that point had been a predominantly female company. In Achterland, the prevalent femininity and minimalism of several of Rosas’s earlier works gave way to an ambiguous no-man’s-land characterized by a blurring of boundaries and symbols.… Read more
