Agenda

From Tue 23.05.17 Dance
  • Daniel Linehan / Hiatus

    In spring 2015 - in collaboration with musicologist Alain Franco - choreographer Daniel Linehan created his own interpretation of Stravinsky's masterpiece The Rite of Spring for 13 newly-graduated dancers from P.A.R.T.S. Alain Franco and Jean-Luc Plouvier (Ictus) accompany them live on piano. As a spectator, you take your place right next to the dancers and the musicians. Linehan replaces the individual sacrifice for the group with an exploration of the work’s musical structure. The dancers must find a way to keep moving to Stravinsky’s uncompromising score, despite its lack of stable patterns. The radical score seems to ask: ‘How can we find new strategies to cope with rapidly changing circumstances?’ A plunge into the collective energy of music and dance.… Read more

  • Claire Croizé / ECCE

    In Primitive choreographer Claire Croizé breaks away from the traditional theatre setting. This is an exceptional dance performance in a unique location. Three talented young dancers - Radouan Mriziga, Youness Khoukhou and José-Paulo dos Santos - utilise all of their vitality to make their dancing bodies shine in these unusual surroundings. Claire Croizé focuses on the strength of their movements, challenging them to maximise the intensity of their dance phrases: from raw, wild dancing to very precisely executed technical movements. The setting sun, the sounds of the city and the unusual architectural environment all help to determine the audience experience. Young artist Joseph Wouters designed the set. For the audience grandstand, he used recycled wood and metal. His work is challenging and functional and has a generous quality. He has previously he worked with, among others, Meg Stuart.… Read more

  • Etienne Guilloteau / ECCE & ZWERM

    The inspiration for Feu is Sophocles' tragedy Antigone. In this famous play, political pressure stops Antigone from burying her brother, who has been killed in the war. This story about the conflict between human values ​​and state-imposed laws is still very topical, almost 2,500 years after its premiere. Etienne Guilloteau translates this struggle into a contemporary dance performance, in which talented Argentinean dancer Cecilia Lisa Eliceche ‘resists’ the live music of electric guitar quartet Zwerm. These latter draw upon a broad repertoire - from contemporary classical to experimental rock – and are the personification of the chorus in Sophocles’ original piece.… Read more

  • Claire Croizé & Etienne Guilloteau / ECCE

    Mer- is the baptism of fire of Claire Croizé and Etienne Guilloteau (ECCE) as Concertgebouw resident artists. Five dancers move to religious and profane polyphonic works about life, death, grief and pain. The five singers of the Marnix De Cat Ensemble bring this Renaissance music back to vibrant life. The title Mer- is a reference to the Indo-European roots of the French 'mourir', but also a reference to the sea, la mer. … Read more

  • Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Jean-Guihen Queyras / Rosas

    This new creation by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, edits, questions and dances Bach’s famous Cello Suites. World-famous cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras plays them live for the three male and two female dancers, one of them De Keersmaeker herself. In this fascinating symbiosis of music and dance, both the essence of each suite and their mutual interplay in the whole are revealed.… Read more

  • Jan Fabre & Troubleyn

    Just as Fellini made an ode to his city with Roma, so too does Fabre want to bring on ode to his country. He wants to share the crazy fun of our culture with the whole world. It is not the fringes of society that Fabre shows, but the irony, which never becomes cynical. Instead he glorifies the subversive power of our imagination. Belgian Rules / Belgium Rules is Fabre's theatrical 'selfie' of his roots. Musician Raymond van het Groenewoud provides the accompanying songs. Johan de Boose provides the text.… Read more

  • Rianto & Nani Topeng Losari Cirebon

    Belgian arts festival Europalia Indonesia visits Bruges with this exceptional double bill. In his home region, Javanese dancer Rianto learnt the cross-gender lengger dance from old masters. For his solo Medium, he collaborates with leading Indonesian filmmaker Garin Nugroho and with percussionist/vocalist Cahwati. In the second part of the evening, an impressive gamelan - an ensemble composed primarily of traditional Javanese percussion instruments – accompanies the Topena Cirebon, a typical graceful mask dance from West Java.… Read more

  • Femke & Lander Gyselinck

    Brother and sister Gyselinck clearly have artistic blood: he is a drummer and she is a dancer. But for the creation of their first joint performance, they’ve decided to switch jobs. Using a number of Jennifer Lopez songs – a shared passion – as their basis, they create a dance performance with live music: he dances, she makes the music. … Read more

  • Christian Rizzo / ICI – CCN Montpellier

    London, late 1970s: the heyday of joyfully swinging glitter-disco. But brooding in the wings a darker music culture is about to break through. Joy Division singer Ian Curtis makes poetic, sombre music, to which the dancing is electric, angular and jerky. How could disco, post-punk and new wave bloom simultaneously? Can they come together in one body? In his exciting group work Le syndrome ian, Christian Rizzo looks for an answer to these questions on a – very appropriate - golden dance floor.… Read more

  • Vania Vaneau

    Via trance and multiple metamorphoses, choreographer Vania Vaneau and guitarist Simon Dijoud examine which mental and physical layers define an individual. Each person embodies a range of characteristics, just as white light is composed of all the colours. Blanc is reminiscent of pagan and shamanistic rituals and evokes the atmosphere of an intense and secret ceremony.… Read more

  • Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon

    In Second Detail renowned choreographer William Forsythe reconstructs the classical (ballet) canon. He does this by fragmenting not only the dance, but also the light, space and sound. The recent works of the Italian Sciarroni – the second choreographer in this diptych – are inspired by surprising physical actions: Bavarian folk dancing, juggling, or handball being played by the blind. This time he has the dancers of the renowned French ballet spin around their own axis and thus literally takes us for a wild spin.… Read more
