'The heart ‘is’ sovereign, the spirit ‘should be’. Take people the way they ‘are’, not as they ‘should be’. - Franz Schubert
Schubert devoted his life unconditionally to music, but he did so at a great cost. Not only did he live in serious poverty, his desire for a ‘normal’ life went unfulfilled. Is a life dedicated to art a life lived fully or does art make a fulfilled life impossible? ‘Cellist Joachim Eijlander and dancer/choreographer Rutkay Özpinar surprised the public at the 2017 Festival Classique with the beautiful duo performance Sequenza. With the supervision of Leo Spreksel, Korzo’s artistic director, it became a performance in which the music was made to dance and the dance made music. A sequel was inevitable. For The Unfamiliar, the duo pairs up with pianist Anastasia Safonova and dancer Clara Cafiero.
