Just Once, our yearly event to open up our process to you.
Halfway through the creation of our new performance Songs And Silences, we want to share the work-in-progress, the questions and conversations that guide us with you.
Excerpts of choreography, live music, live experiments and we’ll also be interviewing Robert Neugarten, a translator with a specialty in music books and biographies. He has translated books by and about the likes of Bono and Elton John, and most recently he translated Bob Dylan’s new book The Philosophy Of Modern Song.
We will be speaking with Robert about the role of songs in our society as well as about the similarities between translating and dancing.
This is a very nice compliment for the end of the year: PART was chosen as one of five best performances of 2022 by national newspaper Het Parool. Thank you 🙂
“An excitingly constructed quest that begins in the dark, in an uncanny sound decor, culminates in a flowing group choreography to Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fifteenth String Quartet. Choreographer Amos-Ben-Tal, sound artist Salvador Breed and the string players of the Ragazze Quartet disassemble the composition to gloriously reassemble it before the eyes and ears of the audience.” – Het Parool
We are happy to share with you that we’ll have the premiere of our new production PART at Amare, Den Haag on 7&8 Oct. ___PART is an exciting new collaboration with, the Ragazze Quartet and sound designer Salvador Breed. A performance in which dance, the beautiful music of Beethoven and advanced sound technology merge into an ‘immersive’ sensory experience around the theme of emptiness and fragmentation.
Prize nomination! We’re thrilled to share that Interval, the piece we made with @Gosse de Kort has been nominated for the Zwaan award for outstanding dance production.
The nomination is both a surprise and a delight. We see it as a wonderful recognition of the dedication and creativity that everyone in the team put into the work. It is also a signal that research, collaboration and slow processes are great ways to work 🙂
The Zwaan prizes, also known as the ’Oscars of Dutch dance’, are awarded by the VSCD (association of theater directors). The winners will be announced during the Gala of the @Nederlandse Dansdagen in Maastricht on 30 September, where we are also performing a small fragment of our new work PART.
Congratulations to all the other nominees, thank you to all our partners and special thanks to @WhyNot who commissioned the original research trajectory.
