For the first time, on 8 and 9 May, the yearly dance event Voorjaarsontwaken shows work by burgeoning talent from abroad. Three young dance makers from South Korea were invited to present their work to the Dutch public. KIM Bora, LIM Jin-ho, and KIM Jaeduk made a big impression on Korzo’s artistic director Leo Spreksel during the showcases at PAMS 2013 (Performing Arts Market Seoul). Now, within the concept of Voorjaarsontwaken, where pieces by burgeoning choreographic talent are shown, the rest of the Netherlands can get acquainted with talent from a fascinating new dance region.

Leo Spreksel: “South Korea has everything going to become an important country in terms of dance; an open mentality, a young population, and an eagerness to allow outside influences. The country is making enormous strides in catching up to the present day. Performers are coming up out of the urban and hip-hop scenes. Cultural traditions are applied in a contemporary way resulting in a modern dance with a clearly Asian signature. Personal, physical, and unpolished. And it’s really about something too.”

The Korean program is supplemented with the premiere of Isha, a contemporary Indian dance duet by artists-in-residence Hari & Chethana Noopur.

General information
Voorjaarsontwaken will be held from 1-3 and from 8-9 May. Performance begins at 19:30. The international program plays on Thu 8 and Fri 9 May. More info & tickets.

Together with Korzo production house, established in The Hague, the BNG Cultuurfonds launches a new prize: The BNG Bank Excellent Talent Dance Award.
The prize supports top talent in the field of choreography and consists of an endowment of 45.000 Euros to be used to finance a tour: the Excellent Talent Dance Tour. During the celebration of the BNG Cultuurfonds’ fiftieth anniversary, the first BNG Excellent Talent Dance Award will be presented to choreographer Samir Calixto.

Partnership BNG Cultuurfonds and Korzo Productions
The BNG Cultuurfonds and Korzo Productions have joined forces to support specially talented creatives with national and international potential on their way to the next stage of their career. Now that the Dutch production houses are no longer part of the basic cultural infrastructure, Korzo and the BNG Cultuurfonds aim to provide continuity in the development of excellent young creatives. The BNG Cultuurfonds and Korzo will commit to a joint talent development program for exceptional choreographic talent over the next three years.

Samir Calixto and the BNG Bank Excellent Talent Dance Tour
With the support of Korzo, the Dutch-Brazilian choreographer Samir Calixto has made great steps to further his career these past years. In 2012, he made a great impression with Winterreise, for which he took as inspiration the song-cycle of the same name by Franz Schubert. His 4 Seasons won him a Swan Prize nomination for Most Impressive Dance Production of 2013. The prize money connected to the BNG Bank Excellent Talent Dance Award also enables the public to enjoy the works of this choreographic talent. 4 Seasons will go on tour through the Netherlands in April and May 2014, visiting 12 cities.

Dutch choreographer Joeri Dubbe was awarded the coveted BNG Nieuwe Theatermakers Prize as well as the Nederlandse Dansdagen Prize. This paved the way for Dubbe to make his second full-length performance: Solaris. Joeri is fascinated by current world developments and the effect they have on humanity and our lives. With a fantastic cast of six dancers, he focuses on a phenomenon that dominates our lives and our thoughts: power. The world is perceived as a pyramid with few, and finally only one person at the top. It is a way of thinking that applies throughout history, but - Dubbe wonders - is it still valid today?

Together with light designer Tom Visser, composers Thijs Kaldenbach and Marvin Boven, and especially for this occasion, stage designer Doef Beernink, Dubbe conceived a circle of pillars and ropes on stage, within which a continuous cycle of ‘power systems’ takes place – an eternal cycle of sunrise and sunset.

With his powerful and striking imagery, Dubbe takes you on a cinematic dance trip: from democracy to monarchy, and via anarchy to dictatorship, to finally end where it all began.
