Rite Here
Rite Now

Dates 27 May 2021 to 03 June 2021

A unique collaboration of the New Rotterdam Jazz Orchestra, LantarenVenster and Scapino Ballet Rotterdam.

In a series of four performances, in collaboration with LantarenVenster, the New Rotterdam Jazz Orchestra (NRJO) enters into daring collaborations with other Rotterdam based artists. In this second edition, the dancers of Scapino merge with the musicians in the intimate setting of LantarenVenster.

Rite Here Rite Now

The performance that originated in the three days that the groups spent together in LantarenVenster, was named Rite Here Rite Now. Romain Bly (NRJO): “The gathering was like a ritual in which art was created spontaneously, in a flow and in one place by musicians, dancers and technicians together. It is important to us that the meeting took place precisely in Rotterdam, because this city is our home. Each of us has experienced so many magical moments in Rotterdam and that happened again.”

Most of the performance is improvised. Some parts are collectively choreographed on the spot. The music was written especially for the occasion and includes Taglingja and Babbel, two pieces that will be released later on the new NRJO album expected in September.
