After last years’ triumph, Scapino is proud to present Ed Wubbe’s masterpiece ‘Holland’ in a performance with two premières by Marco Goecke and Loïc Perela. In expressing his feelings about his native land, Wubbe returns to the Golden Age, to the origins of Holland’s identity. Against the backdrop of dramatic skies in the tradition of the Dutch masters, Wubbe sublimely integrates the contrasts between the spirit of free enterprise and narrow-mindedness in the dance. In this exhilarating group choreography with invigorating solos and superb choreographic twists, Wubbe paints a picture of a country where you can be yourself.
The anarchy of dance star Marco Goecke and Bach’s orchestra suite fuse seamlessly in the piece ‘Suite, suite, suite’. Behind Goecke’s bizarre yet arresting language of movement lingers a structure wrought with a precision even Bach would have envied.
The new piece by dancer/choreographer Loïc Perela is awaited with great anticipation. Perela was the jewel of last season’s performers, skilfully entrancing the audience with his infectiously loose, natural style of movement. In ‘Craquer la peau’, Perela goes in search for the spark of divinity in all of us. A sophisticated, touchingly, vulnerable piece of choreography.
