dance - Season 14/15
Brian Eno’s song 'Golden Hours' is the point of departure for the new creation by Rosas. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker continues to explore the perception of time in choreography, and approaches a cast of young dancers in their idiosyncratic movement expressions. Their speaking becomes their dancing.
The French choreographer Rachid Ouramdane has created a ‘sfumato’ choreography in which the scenes flow into one another and the boundaries of the bodies appear to dissolve. The dancers evolve in a landscape of mist and rain. The choreography is a metaphor for several ecological themes: the loss of habitats, the exile to unknown places, the memory that remains..
Two dancers appear on stage. They make noises, touch one another, move, explore each other’s bodies and so, in a ping-pong game of question and answer, invent a language – language as a ‘by-product’ of any artistic or love relationship.
A magical, sensual, almost psychedelic performance in which the bodies of the dancers, materials, light and sound play an equally important role. For this first group choreography, the Swedish-Dutch choreographer Jefta van Dinther is once again working with the sound designer David Kiers and lighting designer Minna Tiikkainen.
The new production by the Zita Swoon Group is based on a short film that reconstructs one of the first performances of Dada at the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Here Hugo Ball presents his sound poem Karawane. The film contains all the elements Stef Kamil Carlens and his associates will use in their performance: costumes, dance, music, rhythm, poetry, a confusion (of tongues) and humour.
