About the piece

Inspired by how the human desire for happiness can also be a necessity, a strategy for protection and even survival, this new performance Bending the Walls is inspired by the incredible courage and resilience that people show under extreme pressure, and which enables them to transcend the reality and escape into a world of imagination. Dance becomes a metaphor for the psychological, physical and emotional forces that we can address to withstand the pressures of life and continue our incessant quest for happiness.

INFO OVER AGHORI

In his work, hip-hop innovator Shailesh Bahoran is inspired by his roots. In surprising ways, he combines the compelling energy and virtuosity of hip-hop with elements of Hindustani culture. In the dance performance Aghori, Shailesh shows what total devotion looks like. The most important inspiration for this performance was the ‘Aghori’, Indian gurus who aim to attain enlightenment through years of meditation and training. Through unending mental and physical training, they make their way past countless sins, temptations, and emotions, to finally leave everything behind. Because only then can you experience the world in its true form.

Since 1993, Korzo productions organizes an annual talent development project  in which four choreographers from The Hague are commissioned to create a short piece. The four pieces are combined in a full-length program, that is presented in the Korzo theatre under the title Here we live and now. Since 2013, the project is coproduced by Nederlands Dans Theater.

For the 2016 edition, two of the choreographers are looking for male and female dancers with strong ballet and contemporary technique, who are based in the Netherlands.

Menghan Lou is looking for two professional contemporary dancers with good ballet technique and strong floor work. Partnering skills are  required - theatrical and improvisational skills are a plus.

Celia Amade searches for two dancers who are continuously exploring movement and have a strong connection to their body, mind and soul, as well as a good perception of space, time and gravity. The project includes live music, composed and performed by Sjahin During, and therefore she especially invites dancers with a sensitivity to the frequency which emanates from music, and an awareness of its impact on the  flesh.

On April 30th and May 1st 2016 the first edition of The Hague International Jazz Days will vibrate in the city’s center. This sparkling new festival links with the global celebration of the UNESCOorganized International Jazz Day. Jazz is known to be the musical genre that brings different cultures together and nurtures dialogue. The organization is proud to announce Ed Motta and Izaline Calister as the main acts of the festival, both presenting their brand new albums.

The festival opens in Korzo with a unique reunion of the first complete Big Band from the Arab world: The Syrian Big Band. Together with Codarts Big Band they will warm up the audience with jazzy and worldly sounds promoting peace and togetherness. After this, the Brazilian superstar Ed Motta will step foot on stage of the Nieuwe Kerk where he will present his latest album Perpetual Gateways. A smoking album full of soul, funk, jazz, rock and Brazilian influences.

Edison-winner Izaline Calister marks the closing of the first day of The Hague International Jazz Days at Paard van Troje with her contagious fusion of traditional music from Curaçao and Jazz with Afro- Caribbean influences. Besides, she will present her upcoming album Lus di Solo. On Sunday, the Jazzschool Big Band will give a dazzling performance in the Regentenkamer.

The Hague International Jazz Days also add an educational aspect to the festival. On Saturday a public workshop will be given in Prins 27 by saxophonist and composer Rolf Delfos, known from Jazzinvaders, Houdini's, and Artvark. In addition, the American singer Rachel Gould, known for her contribution to Chet Bakers All Blues, will give workshops for vocalists. The afternoon will end with a jam session in the lobby.

The Hague International Jazz Days are initiated by Stichting WorldTown Music in cooperation with, among others, Dans- en Muziekcentrum Den Haag (DMC), Stichting Cultureel Centrum 't Paard, Korzo and Jazzschool Den Haag.
