In Two Tales, young up-and-coming dance makers tell penetrating stories with firm roots in the traditions and customs of their homeland. Choreographer duo Danae & Dionysios created the penetrating dance piece Free at Last and choreographer Erika Maria Silgoner creates a love story, farce and tragedy in one in The Mourning.
An exciting new collaboration
Both are winners of the XL Production Award of the Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition (RIDCC), of which Scapino has been a partner from the very start. This choreography competition is unique in the world, partly due to the awarding of the largest dance prize in the world; a production budget of €100,000 to create a new work. In collaboration with RIDCC, Scapino presents two winners of the XL Production Award in Two Tales. Performed by and created with the dancers of Scapino Ballet Rotterdam.
Free at last
Intriguing dance rituals and the intense and mystical atmosphere make this dance piece an overwhelming experience. Free at last is based on a well-known Greek myth about the struggle for independence. A group of women dance their last dance on the edge of a cliff as a sign of resistance.
With their homeland and ancient Greek stories as sources of inspiration, the choreographer duo Danae & Dionysios create an atmospheric and penetrating dance piece about the cycle of life and traditions that are passed on from generation to generation.
The dance piece The Mourning is a love story, farce and tragedy all-in-one. From her Sicilian background, choreographer and theater maker Erika Silgoner creates a lively and cinematic choreography with eight dancers. Sadness, humor, irony, passion, and hilarious moments alternate. With breathtaking partnering and virtuoso dance, Silgoner manages to hold the audience’s attention from the beginning to the surprising end.
Erika Silgoner is the founder of Eklan Art's Factory, an innovative, young Italian company that performs worldwide. Because of her originality, she was asked to choreograph a part of the closing ceremony of the Olympic winter games in Beijing.
