Krisztina de Châtel / SALLY Dansgezelschap Maastricht / Ensemble 88

The triptych (Im)Pulse presents two acclaimed works by Krisztina de Châtel, Pulse (2007) and Thirteen Images From The Dark Land (2017). The recent piece, REMOTE, a combination of dance and sound art by young artist Audrey Apers, will also be performed.

'A true classic in De Châtel's oeuvre, worth seeing again.' (NRC about Pulse)

Pulse by Krisztina de Châtel is choreography set to music by György Ligeti, one of the greatest contemporary composers, and with costumes by fashion icon AZIZ. Three men and two women are lifted by Ligeti's driving piano sounds. Repetitive group dances are interchanged with powerful solos and duets.

Thirteen Images From The Dark Land was commissioned by SALLY Dance Company. This is the first time in her career that De Châtel has created a duet that revolves around human contact. Accompanied live by Ensemble 88, the choreography explores the human soul in the physical body. It's 'a powerful male pas de deux by choreographer Krisztina de Châtel', as de Volkskrant described it.

Talented young choreographer Audrey Apers created REMOTE (2018), in which technology, music and dance come together in surprising ways. In REMOTE, Apers puts the power of the performer to the test. Sensors on the dancer's body are used to convert their movements into electronic sounds.

Krisztina de Châtel has more than seventy choreography credits to her name. In her work, vulnerable human bodies are confronted with natural elements such as wind, earth and water, or with the imposing space of a building. There is also often a battle raging within the body itself: between passion and control, between individual freedom and the security of the collective.

SALLY Dansgezelschap Maastricht makes dance performances and interactive dance projects for young and old alike. It challenges young dancers and talented choreographers to develop their talents and makes an extra effort to get younger audiences involved in dance.
