About

New Yorker Bryan Arias is inspired by great contemporary choreographers such as Jiří Kylián, Ohad Naharin and Crystal Pite. He mixes dance styles and shows with humour how our past, environment and our relationships affect our behaviour. The choreographies of Felix Landerer are characterised by virtuoso and organic image and dance language. His work Blind Spot (Scapino Ballet) was nominated for the Zwaan dance prize, 'most impressive dance production'.

Simple Things
by Hans van Manen opens and closes with a duet for two men to seductive accordion music. In between they dance various pas de deux with two women. It is 'typical' Van Manen: a story in which relationships emerge, change, seem to settle and change again. Marco Goecke won the prestigious Zwaan for 'most impressive dance production' with his creation Midnight Raga. Goecke has been internationally acclaimed (and awarded) for his dark, suggestive pieces, furiously fast and full of changes of tempo.
