Starting a fresh year with two new guests in Gueststudio 1 and 3:
Dancers Sayouba Sigue and Adonis Nebie are working on a new choreography made by Kalpana Raghuraman for the Holland Dance Festival 2012. The work Towards Dawn tackles fear and pain head on in the duet with the two dancers from Burkina Faso.
Kalpana Raghuraman has made a duet about the survival strategies of modern man. What do you do if you don’t belong? Or if you don’t feel safe or loved? We like to try to find connection and comfort through sex, food, drink and other addictions, but we also find it easy to build up a ‘social’ virtual life. Kalpana combines her Indian background with the movement material of the two dancers, and walks away from this escapist behavior in a raw and dynamic duet.
Rehearsal period January 9 until January 25, Premiere January 26, performances January 27 and 28 in Korzo.
