Noteworthy pieces are combined into a varied program in which you can discover your favourite talent.

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 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?

PROGRAM INFO

The Actor / To Personify - Percevale Perks
The American Perceval Perks was fourteen years old when he started at the prestigious Kirov Academy of Ballet in Washington. When he was nineteen he left for Germany to dance with the Hamburg Ballet. Since 2007 Percevale has resided in The Hague where he started as a dancer with the Nederlands Dans Theater but now he works here as a freelance choreographer. Percevale made his initial choreographies while dancing at the Hamburg Ballet. These choreographies were shown at various festivals in Germany. As a dancer Percevale has worked in Korzo on a number of occasions. This is his first time as a choreographer.

A small guide on how to treat your lifetime companion - Jan Martens
Jan Martens (1984) was born in Belgium and received his dance training at the Royal Conservatory for Dance at the Artesis Academy in Antwerp. And also at the Fontys Dance Academy in Tilburg. As a dancer Jan Martens was featured in works by a.o. Koen de Preter, United-C and Ann Van den Broek. Since 2009 he has been developing his own pieces as well. Instead of focusing on dansante virtuosity or complex choreography Jan centers his work around the ugliness and beauty of everyman.

Too many new beginnings - Jasper van Luijk
At twenty four Jasper van Luijk is the youngest choreographer selected for Voorjaarsontwaken. What intrigues him is the communicative aspect of dance: not the tricks the body can learn, but the pure physical control and aesthetics that dance can bring to a stage. This holds the magic for Jasper. He studied at the Arnhem Dance Academy. From his first year, the broad and inclusive method of that school has been very inspirational for Jasper and has helped him to make willful pieces. After performing his first solo there was no way back for him.

Elephant in the room - Marina Mascarell
The Spanish Marina Mascarell Martinez was born in Valencia. In 2008 she became part of Cedar Lake Dance in New York and after that she joined the Nederlands Dans Theater in the Hague. Marina has won numerous international awards for dance as well as choreography. She won, among others, the Outstanding Dancer award at the 2005 Choreography Concour in Madrid; as well as a scholarship to North Carolina at the American Dance Festival in Durham. Marina makes socially relevant pieces. A short film was made of the piece Elephant in the Room.

Amoroso - Cora Bos-Kroese
Cora Bos-Kroese began dancing at age seven in South Africa. It wasn’t long before she won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Dance which gave her an opportunity to be schooled at the Royal Ballet School in London for a year. In 1985 she switched over to the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. During her career with the Nederlands Dans Theater Cora created her own choreographies such as Trespass, Mizu, Under my feet and her most recent work Exposed and Signals.

Skin - Sagi Gross
Sagi Gross studied at the Bat-Dor Dance Academy in Tel-Aviv and the National Ballet Academy in Amsterdam. During his study he won five scholarships for choreography and dance. As a choreographer Sagi has made over thirty five pieces in Israel, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands. In 2008 he was chosen to be a part of the Siwic choreography project One Charming Night for the main program of the Vondelpark Openluchttheater Amsterdam. In his new production Skin he is searching for forms of identity. In June 2011 Sagi and his four dancers are invited to perform in The Busan International Dance Festival and in The Pocket Festival, Seoul in South Korea and teach a workshop at the Dance Academy of Busan. As well to perform in Berlin and Potsdam during ‘Lucky Trimmer’ performances series.

Nora. - Eilit Marom
Eilit Marom, 24 years old, born in Haifa (Israël). Studied dance at 'Reut' and 'Wizo' art schools in Haifa. After finishing her studies she attended a 2 year professional course in Kibbutz Gaaton, and left Israël to broaden her horizon in the Netherlands. There she completed her B.A dance studies at 'ArtEZ Dance academy' in Arnhem. As a dancer Eilit worked among others with the choreographers Fernando Martins, Erik Kaiel and Piet Rogie. Discovering her urge to choreograph, Eilit worked as an assistant for Anouk van Dijk, participated in collaborations with different visual artists and performed her own work at 'One Night's Dance' in Dansateliers, Suzan Dalal Tel Aviv and various festivals in Europe.

The Search Within - Revanta Sarabhai
Revanta is an independent performer, choreographer, multimedia designer and filmmaker, currently pursuing his MA at Roehampton University, London. Having made his solo classical dance debut at age 8, he has been performing professionally and touring internationally with the Darpana Performance Group since 1999. Trained in a variety of Indian and world folk, contemporary and martial arts forms, he started experimenting with choreography at age 14, and has since developed his own contemporary vocabulary that has been showcased in productions as at several prestigious venues and festivals across Asia, Europe, and North America.
