One Night’s Dance is Dansateliers’ annual start-up project for beginning dancemakers. Every year five talented choreographers are challenged to create a new piece within a limited timeframe. The makers explore boundaries, develop concepts, challenge bodies and fuse forms which results in daring and unpolished new work. In 2018 their will be a special edition of One Night’s Dance, fitted in the framework of the 25 years Dansateliers jubilee program. Next to new pieces Dansateliers brings back two golden oldies developed during previous One Night’s Dance editions. Choreographer Erik Kaiel presents his duet No Man is an Island and Connor Schumacher is back with his personal solo solo Boy oh Boy I.
On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous – Maria Sartzetaki
Together with dancers Jordy Jansen and Shaquille George Maria Sartzetaki explores the double edged substance of one physical body. Within the body, masculine and feminine energies sometimes coexist in equilibrium and sometimes challenge each other. Maria searches for the middle: not a compromise, but the power of two forces.
HRT – Ellis van Veldhuizen
HRT by Ellis van Veldhuizen is based on human’s natural beat. HRT stands for that part of the body that is strongly connected to the feeling of being alive. By using the rhythm and movement of the heart as a starting point Ellis plays with the interaction between the body, its sensations and expression.
Solid dance – Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen & Elisa Zuppini*
Solid Dance is an energetic encounter between the makers. Departing from the idea of estranging a body part in order to be able to connect this part to the others body and ultimately become one, Sigrid and Elisa have been investigating how they could be a support system to each other as an act of resistance and rebellion of todays individuality and find care in places we don’t usually look for it.
Note! Instead of Solid Dance by Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen & Elisa Zuppini, we present the duet As much as it is worth by Kim & Marta on December 7th and a preview of The Fool by Connor Schumacher on December 8th.
One Night’s Dance 2018 includes art & poetry by Anne van Winkelhof, Marjolein Roozen, Lotte Vermeulen and Jasmijn Krol.
