For all we know / Holland Dance Festival

The work of Antonin Comestaz has playful and absurdistic tone with an incredible movement creativity. It gives his style a complete unique charme. Behind the captivating lightness lies the seriousness and authentic passion of a versatile creative artist who we’re sure to hear more of. “For all we know” is the annual co-production performance between NDT and Korzo theater.

And on the first day, God said, “Let there be light!”, and there was light. But God waited until the third day to make the sun. So what lit the earth for the first two days? When it’s zero degrees outside and the forecast for the next day says it will be twice as cold, what will be the temperature? When a fly lands on the ceiling, when is he upside down? And where does the colour white go when the snow melts? These are the childishly poetic questions Antonin Comestaz definitely does not want to answer in For all we know.

Zahira Suliman graduated from Codarts in 2016. Since the age of 17 she was associated with Korzo where she worked with various creatives and created her exam choreography Disinhibitionalism for Crosstown. She was nominated in 2016 for the Haagse Piket Kunstprijzen in the category dance. For the CaDance Festival 2019 she created the solo Recall for the location project 4x4: My Story. A solo about what we forgot, but what our body remembered. Because of her choreographic talent Korzo invited her for the program Here we live and now where up-and-coming choreographers from The Hague create a short performance.

Zahira is fascinated by the sincerity of dance as pure language that goes beyond words. Energy and intention are defining qualities for her during the creative process of a performance. In her performances, Zahira strives for the creation of question marks, without giving answers.

Kalpanarts and Korzo facilitates donations to The Hunger Project via the performance Superhuman: Our Inner Darkness. This international NGO works in 22 countries on a sustainable end to chronic hunger.

Kalpana Raghuraman recognizes the 'super powers' of the people with whom she works. The Hunger Project uses the same method and puts local village council members in their power to contribute effectively to a future without hunger and poverty. This is also the case in India, where women are the key to making a sustainable end to chronic hunger. Since 2000, The Hunger Project has already supported 175,000 women village council members in India through their leadership program Odisha's 100 - or rather: Superhumans - during their 5-year election period.

The theme of the performance Superhuman: Our Inner Darkness and the working method of Kalpana matches beautifully with the work of The Hunger Project. That is why Kalpanarts starts a donation fund in collaboration with the theaters, where you can donate to The Hunger Project. Donations can be as little as 1 Euro.

Superhuman: Our Inner Darkness

Kalpana grew up in the Netherlands in an Indian family. As a little girl she devoured many Indian mythological comic strips, in which to her surprise good and bad characters were less one-sided than in Western culture. A superhero could also be bad. This openness about the inner darkness that lies within all of us fascinates Kalpana. In Superhuman: Our Inner Darkness she creates a new superhero through a symbiosis of Indian dance, contemporary dance, music composed by Simone Giacomini and live vocals of Lotta Sophie Bakker. A hero who also dares to show the inner darkness, a superhuman.

Friday 2 (premiere) and Saturday 3 November. Read more and order tickets.

Odisha's 100

Odisha's 100 is a network that makes itself strong for female leaders in India. A group where 100 special and passionate Dutch women come together. Who want to change the world together and invest in a clear goal: an end to hunger in Odisha, India. How? By supporting female village council members in their political term. A silent revolution is taking place in India: tens of thousands of female village council members in the countryside pull their village out of deep poverty. On their own, they already move mountains, but together they cannot be stopped. What can we learn in the Netherlands from these unlikely leaders? And what can we do to make their success inescapable?

25 Oct 2018
