Agenda

From Wed 21.02.18 Dance
  • 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

  • Emanuel Gat / Awir Leon

    SUNNY - after the Marvin Gaye song of the same name - is a live concert and dance performance in one. With his warm voice and exquisite electronics, Awir Leon builds an atmospheric soundscape. Think of the sound of James Blake, Chet Faker… or even Thom Yorke. Choreographer Emanuel Gat’s dance evolves into an increasingly virtuosic intertwining. Silences, playful costumes, piercing glances and laughter create a world full of youthful exuberance.… Read more

  • Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui / Sadler’s Wells (London)

    In Sutra Cherkaoui links the ancient kung fu, practiced by the Buddhist monks of the Shaolin Temple, with contemporary dance. Turner Prize winner Antony Gormley designed the wooden crate set. Polish composer Szymon Brzóska composed the music, which is played live. Sutra is a cultural exchange, about the old and the new China, about building and destroying, transformation and play.… Read more

  • Kidd Pivot / Crystal Pite & Electric Company Theatre / Jonathon Young

    Some questions are impossible to answer and some experiences are too personal to express. With unflinching honesty, choreographer Crystal Pite and actor/playwright Jonathon Young combine forces to explore what happens to someone after a hellish trauma. This haunting work by two of Canada’s most celebrated performing artists is an innovative metamorphosis, from theatre to dance, a story told through poetry, drama, cabaret and movement.… Read more
