'A vibrant quintet full of affectionate swagger,' wrote de Volkskrant about their latest performance Sweet Demon. LeineRoebana is now presenting a new performance SOLAS, another exciting mix of dance, vocals, music and lyrics. Seven dancers and two classical singers will dance and sing to the music of John Dowland.

Duration TBA
Genre dance
Preview at 19:30

Dance, song and music come together in choreography about beauty and comfort.

Solas is the medieval French version of the word 'solace', which means 'comfort, enlightenment, support. Providing solace means that 'helping', 'solving problems' and 'bringing comfort' go hand in hand. Faced with the persistent problems of our time, LeineRoebana takes that to heart in their latest performance SOLAS. The performance does not offer direct solace to suffering world , but it does create the space to find and embrace alternatives. SOLAS combines the comfort of the experience of beauty with the need to look at reality differently.

Seven dancers, mezzo-soprano Talitha van der Spek and talented young artist Elisabeth Hetherington sing and dance to the music of English Renaissance composer John Dowland (1563-1626). In SOLAS, Dowland becomes a contemporary through the accompaniment of electric guitar, through the contrasts with contemporary music and through the juxtaposition with contemporary dance.

LeineRoebana is a dance company with an international reputation, led by Andrea Leine and Harijono Roebana. The choreographers are specialists in the multidisciplinary approach. The interaction between dance and music, in collaboration with musicians and composers, is essential to their work. For LeineRoebana, dance is a physical form of thinking, a way to relate to the world around you.

In de pers

“ (…) Solas, een speelse samensmelting van live muziek, zang, dans en gesproken tekst, in alles één troostrijk gebaar.”
-De Volkskrant ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“Dansers zingen, zangeressen bewegen, musici praten gezamenlijke maken ze een warm bad zonder sentimenteel te worden.”
-De Volkskrant ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“Het is een van de beste voorstellingen die Andrea Leine en Harijono Roebana in bijna dertig jaar hebben gemaakt. Een dansconcert dat waarlijk soelaas biedt als arm om de schouder voor wie daar nood aan heeft, zoals mezzosopraan Talitha van der Spek bezingt in het ontroerende openingslied.”
De Volkskrant ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“In Solas van LeineRoebana, (…) wordt gecommuniceerd via dans, zang, muziek, tekst en gestiek. Manieren van vertellen uit het verleden staan naast hedendaagse uitdrukkingsvormen en alle performers lenen uitdrukkingsmiddelen van de anderen: dansers zingen, zangeressen dansen, muzikanten zeggen tekst. Het stuk zoekt op fascinerende manieren en met veel plezier en vakmanschap het geploeter op in onze lijnen van verbinding.”
