The Quiet

Jefta van Dinther (SE/DE)

The fascinating, hypnotic performances of Jefta van Dinther have been crowd magnets at Julidans for years. We have earlier presented his three large-scale performances, including the world premiere of Protagonist by the Cullberg Ballet. In 2018 we presented the intimate Dark Field Analysis, called a “dizzying trip” by de Volkskrant. Julidans is a co-producer of The Quiet, Van Dinther's new show about and with multiple generations of women.

Five inspiring women in a hypnotic painting.

For The Quiet, Van Dinther again works with his regular artistic partners, sound designer David Kiers and lighting designer Minna Tiikkainen. The trio creates surreal worlds, in which your senses are sharpened. Time and time again it turns out to be a magical combination.

But Van Dinther has also entered a new phase. After years of working mainly with men, The Quiet is about women - the women who inspired Van Dinther as a dancer and choreographer. Together they create a performance about what is transmitted across generations, about the preservation and passing on of knowledge. Five women from different generations stand on stage in a minimalist choreography, soft and hypnotic, like a moving painting.

The short choreography, Trança by Thiago Granato, who has been a close collaborator of Van Dinther for many years, can be seen on the same dates in Julidans NEXT, our talent stage in the Melkweg. We can only recommend seeing both performances and have therefore scheduled them one after the other.
