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 Après 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.
On Hold - Ryan Djojokarso
Ryan has caused surprise in previous years with a series of duets about a young, unmarried couple. On Hold is the third part of the series: a desperate, but loving attempt to get through to each other. With a physical sense of drama and a touch of humour, Ryan manages to translate familiar concerns into dance.
Rhizoma - Astrid Boons
Astrid Boons (1988) made a great impression in 2016 with the intense duet Rhizoma. Following the philosophical idea that existence can only be and only be perceived in coexistence with others (Jean-Luc Nancy), Astrid explores the impossibility of individual existence. Through glimpses of separation, incompleteness, influences and sensorial interaction, two dancers take us to a continuous flow of multiple transformations.
That’s it - Sabine Molenaar
Sabine Molenaar (1985) caused surprise in 2013 as a choreographer of the solo That’s it, which won various prizes. It was performed in Spain, Brazil, Korea, Austria, Canada, and elsewhere. Sabine roams through many layers of reality. She transforms into many seductive appearances until it becomes clear that nothing is really as it seems. Though That’s it is no longer performed, you can see this compelling solo once more in DansClick.
The BNG Cultuurfonds has been dedicated for years to the financial support and increasing visibility of young talented artists. The BNG Dance Award was established in 2014 by the BNG Cultuurfonds in partnership with Korzo to offer talented choreographers the chance to tour with their own work in the Netherlands. Now the Dutch production houses are no longer capable of supporting young creative artists due to spending cuts for the cultural sector, Korzo and the BNG Cultuurfonds wish to provide for continuity in the development of excellent young artists. The winners jointly receive the sum of € 50.000,- , enabling them to tour through the Netherlands with the successful DansClick.
‘On the one hand, Rhizoma is very formalistic, but with all of the fascinating sculptural poses, exquisitely performed by Maria Chiara Mezzadri and Boons herself, it also touches on a deeper emotional layer of significance.’ (★★★★ de Volkskrant)
