The BNG Bank Dance Prize (€ 50.000,-) has been awarded to three up-and-coming choreographic talents: Astrid Boons, Sabine Molenaar, and Ryan Djojokarso during the Nederlands Dansdagen festival.

On Saturday, 7 October the BNG Bank Dance Prize was presented for the fourth time in the Museum aan het Vrijthof in Maastricht. As in the previous year, the prize goes to three young and promising choreographers. This year, the prize goes to Astrid Boons, Sabine Molenaar, and Ryan Djojokarso. They received the prize, associated with a money prize of € 50.000,-, from Ina Adema, mayoress of Lelystad and board member of the BNG Cultuurfonds. On this occasion the new jury, counting five members, was introduced. The jury is chaired by journalist Annette Embrechts.

The BNG Bank Dansprijs was established in 2014 by the BNG Cultuurfonds in partnership with Korzo, the house of dance in The Hague, to offer talented choreographers the chance to take their work on tour through the Netherlands. The first prizewinners were Samir Calixto and Marina Mascarell, and last year the prize went to the young choreographers Dunja Jocic, Wubkje Kuindersma, and Ruykay Özpinar. Like these last three, the new prizewinners will tour together through the country with the successful theater formula DnasClick. The premiere of the 19th edition of DansClick is on 2 March 2018 in Theater de Hofnar in Valkenswaard. 

With DansClick, Korzo offers the public a wonderful introduction to the latest generation of dance makers. The multiple-bill program will be framed with introductory video portraits and an Aprés-Danse where the audience can enjoy drinks and talk to the choreographers and dancers. The winners of the BNG Bank Dance Award present their work during the 19th edition of DansClick.

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.

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.
