The Square is a new full-lenght production of Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, made by a collective of young choreographers, designers, musicians and dancers.
What happens when you invite two young choreographers and a spoken artist to team up and create a collaborative production? That’s what The Square is all about—a vibrant meeting place and creative breeding ground for dance makers and artists from different backgrounds and working in different styles. Under the direction of artistic direction Ed Wubbe, the various ideas are interwoven in an exciting new production. Like scenes in a film, choreographies, entr’actes and transitions are montaged together, to create a single dance work.
The Square is a production that could not have been made by just one choreographer. It’s fresh, disruptive, and explodes with energy and creativity. A production that takes dance-lovers on an adventure.
With The Square, Scapino takes a new look at TWOOLS, its successful series of performances featuring stand-alone pieces by numerous choreographers presented in rapid succession. The Square is TWOOLS 2.0, a new, collaboratively-focused approach to dance-making.
