Danced tribute to fascinating composer slaloms between movement styles and musical genres

Elisabeth Chojnacka (1939 - 2017) was an exceptionally talented and passionate musician who was partly responsible for the revival of harpsichord music in the mid-20th century. Thanks to her talent and perseverance, in the 1970s and 1980s a large number of composers (Ligeti, Xenakis, Ferrari, Berio, Halffter) wrote new works for the harpsichord, often dedicated to Chojnacka.

It goes without saying that music plays a major role in this performance, with a soundtrack that covers a wide range of composers. From Nyman over Montague to Ligeti, always in a performance by Chojnacka. Martens plays his body like Chojnacka plays the harpsichord. Different movement styles are brought together. Martens slaloms through them as effortlessly as Chojnacka does between historical and modern musical registers. The dance is interwoven with a documentary layer about Chojancka's work and life.

-|-Jan Martens climbed from the Julidans Vondelpark stage to the main stage in record time. This is because of the uniqueness and quality of his performances. Martens strikes a balance between the abstract nature of dance and storytelling. He is guided by his eye for the beauty of the incomplete human being, people of flesh and blood. His dance is intense, physical, and meaningful. After A small guide on how to treat your lifetime companion - about relationships - in 2018, Julidans 2020 had a place on the main stage in mind for Martens. Then it had to be cancelled. We assume that Elisabeth Chojnacka will get her well-deserved tribute this year.

Any attempt will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones can be seen on August 28 and 29 at ITA.
