Five young, passionate, and strong-willed creatives present five new pieces on one evening. For her program Krisztina’s Keuze 2, choreographer Krisztina de Châtel selected a variety of talented choreographers she wanted to afford the chance to further develop their expressiveness. This year she supports Loïc Perela, Connor Schumacher, Sabine Molenaar, Konstantinos Kranidiotis, and Kiyan Khoshoie artistically with all her expertise and experience. We cordially invite you to come and discover their work.
The Frenchman Loïc Perela, who won the Nederlandse Dansdagen Prize in 2015, creates the ensemble piece VOICE in which he connects the bodies of the dancers with their own voices to make one instrument.
Connor Schumacher, who received his training in New York, creates Exhibition, a duet about the notion that people instinctively pick up on each other’s experiences. Are we perhaps all Siamese twins?
Sabine Molenaar drew De Châtel’s attention with her solos because of her courage to be pure and bizarre. She will recreate a solo, entitled A Moment. Sometimes you would want to shut your eyes and plug your ears, if only to avoid the constant input. Then only to discover that images appear on the back of your eyelids and sounds and voices echo in the recesses of your head.
Kostantinos Kranidiotis creates the duet Coexist for a man and a woman. It is a duet about the essence of communication, the importance of the senses, and about sensing and desire.
After seeing the macabre solo Vilain, by De Châtel invited the leading former dancer with Dansgroep Amsterdam and Scapino Ballet Rotterdam - Kiyan Khoshoie - to join Krisztina's Keuze 2.
