Choreographic tour de force
In Twools, a host of world-class dancers effortlessly switch from one style to another. Originality, versatility and virtuosity are the leading principles of these dance performances. The world spins out of control in Maciej Kuzminski’s It’s gonna rain. He has created a dance of attrition to the sounds of Steve Reich’s dynamic music. Shin A Lam by Marcos Morau tells the true story of a dramatic event that shook the world of athletics. In the beautifully stylized While the leaves are blowing by Ryan Djojokarso people have until sundown to find themselves a partner. Ingenious set and costume design in Norai, by Miquel G. Font, visualises the tensions between two people. The Swimmer by Ed Wubbe presents the universe as one filled with boundless love. Joeri Alexander Dubbe’s Ladder ’84 creates a science fiction-like fantasy world.
