With this yearly dance event Voorjaarsontwaken, Korzo lets in the fresh air by flinging the doors wide of the theatre for burgeoning choreographic talent. Noteworthy pieces are combined into a varied program in which you can discover your favourite talent. This year Korzo offers a look, not only at the future of choreographic talent, but also a look at its own future, filled with new projects and partnerships. Every evening you will see six pieces made in the Netherlands by internationally known choreographers.
Swan winner Ederson Rodrigues Xavier created the performance Nudge with live music and dance in partnership with Artemisz Polonyi. In Vis-a-vis, the inventive Anna Réti experiments with various forms of ‘presence’. In the Midst of Confusion is the is the first collaboration project by the acrobatic Jasper Džuki Jelen and movement artist and architect Mojra Vogelnik-Škerlj. Trapeze artist and modern dancer Melissa Ellberger commences her artist in residence period with Korzo during this festival with the duet Re - - act.
Korzo looks forward to a closer collaboration with the Nederlands Dans Theater in the form of a project with two choreographers from the NDT program Switch: Beatween by Ema Yuasa & Miguel Olivera (in cooperation with Marco Santos), and Last Image by Menghan Lou. In I do not hear my voice, Syrian choreographer Eyas Mokdad explores the relationship between man and media. We have a voice, but does it really count? Choreographer Kristel van Issum choreographed a 'one woman show' for a woman of African origin who finds herself in a constant state of metamorphosis.
