Introdans celebrates the power of human uniqueness with a contemporary dance programme: HubClub’23.
Introdans celebrates the power of human uniqueness with a contemporary dance programme: the HubClub’23. Ten choreographers from the Netherlands and abroad create new work and get to work with the classically modern trained Introdancers and a colorful group of guest dancers from different worlds. The artists of the HubClub’23 are irresistible, in spectacular costumes and styling by artist Bas Kosters. The vibe of the evening is that of a nightclub: the audience sits around a dance floor and is treated to acts from the diverse/inclusive professional dance scene.
The coming together of Introdancers with dancers from different worlds is a concept that Introdans has been putting into practice for some time now in The Encounter (De Ontmoeting). A series of performances that choreographer Adriaan Luteijn has developed over the past twenty years. HubClub’23 will be an Encounter in XL format that will also go on tour for the first time, where the buzz of nightlife offers inspiration for all makers and performers.

The HubClub’23 is a new production of Introdans. We show the pearls of the Dutch inclusive/diverse professional stage dance art for a broad audience. Source of inspiration is the successful series Encounters (since 2001) of Introdans and the previous variants of the HubClub from 2021 and 2022.
Introdans is a pioneer with its inclusive vision and working methods and shows much commitment to the region. Under the heading ‘Everyone can dance’, the company develops interactive projects based on its current repertoire for education, the social sphere, the leisure circuit and for talent in society. Besides Introdans, many other Dutch initiatives have been pioneering the professionalisation of inclusive dance for some time. Introdans sought to connect with them and invited them to the HubClub’23. Together the artists form the motley crew: young, old, multicultural, physically/mentally diverse, m/f/x, LHBTQIA+.
Please note: the performance shows intense light effects and a stroboscope is used. This can have a negative effect on people with an epileptic condition.
