Review: Mimicked violence

March 15th, 2023

The combination of dance and Bach is something to look forward to. The patterns and variations in the master composer’s music demand a choreographic translation. It is extremely satisfying when dancers make sequential movements during the layered melodies. That’s when you see the music, and you hear the dance. The two parts of the Bach programme with which Introdans is currently on tour, bring about that delightful synergy.

March 4th, 2023

BACH Review by Theaterkrant: In its new programme Introdans shows a number of works based on the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Existing and adapted choreographies adorn the evening. Choreographer Manuelle Vignoulle developed the somewhat illustrative Anima especially for this programme. Should we have to dramatize Bach’s music? Choreographer Andonis Foniadakis has understood very well that his strength lies mainly in mathematics.
