Introdans presents the highlights of the 2023-2024 season with three choreographies in one evening! Can only be seen once on Tuesday, April 9, 2024 in the Parkzaal of Musis in Arnhem. Akram Khan’s first Kaash. As a spectator you have the feeling that you have stepped into a story, as it were, in a dazzling mix of Indian kathak dance and contemporary dance. We also dance a part of Swan Lake by Stijn Celis. A fresh, humorous adaptation of the ‘ballet of ballets’: Swan Lake. And finally Cantata by Mauro Bigonzetti. In this rousing ‘power piece’, Bigonzetti brings the various characters from an Italian village to life beautifully, inspired by the infectious vocals of the South Italian women’s folk group Assurd who perform live.
Playtime: 9 April
Kaash by Akram Khan from the show FALL
Choreographer Akram Khan caused a real sensation with Kaash at the world premiere in 2002 and the piece immediately brought world fame to the British-Bangladeshi choreographer. As a spectator you have the feeling that you are stepping into a story, in which Khan takes you into his special cosmos, in a dazzling mix of Indian kathak dance and contemporary dance. The dancers use their feet as percussion instruments, while their arms slice sharply through the air. Exciting and virtuoso!
Part of Swan Lake by Stijn Celis
Swan Lake is the famous classic in a new, contemporary adaptation for young and old! With his Swan Lake, the Belgian choreographer Stijn Celis created a fresh, humorous adaptation of the ‘ballet of ballets’: Swan Lake. With a modern twist, for all ages and with the entire Introdans dancer tableau. On April 9, Introdans will dance part of the performance, to the majestic and moving music of Pjotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
Cantata by Mauro Bigonzetti from the performance SPRING (with live music)
In the rousing, earthy and passionate ‘power piece’ Cantata, choreographer Mauro Bigonzetti brings the various characters from an Italian village to life beautifully, inspired by the infectious, raw vocals of the South Italian women’s folk group Assurd who perform live. Men and women measure themselves in powerful ensemble dances and meet in beautiful duets, which are sometimes dramatic or melancholy and then light and humorous. As a viewer, it is difficult to remain unmoved by this exuberant ode to southern folk culture, love, and perhaps especially madness.
