HENRY

25 September 2015 to 19 December 2015

Rarely were reactions from the press and public as unanimous and so highly as that of Itamar Serussi: "matchless" "overwhelming" "modern dance as we have not seen the last few years." After his sensational breakthrough with the overwhelming and hilarious 'WOLF', this season all eyes are focused on this new house choreographer of Scapino.

In his new full-length HENRY we see the energetic movement style that makes him so special: playful, light, elegant, sassy, humorous, crazy, razor sharp and all simultaneously. The inventiveness of movements, variations on classic and modern, seems inexhaustible to Serussi. From its roots in the famous Batsheva Dance Company, he developed his very explicit style that goes beyond the traditional dance movements. He pushes the dancers of Scapino to their physical limits. The uplifting soundscape of his regular composer Richard van Kruysdijk, a mix of dance, pop and techno, is the fuel that jumpstarts the show and keeps it going.
