#EDGYDANCE #NAKEDTRUTH #NEWYOUNG

NL PREMIERE SPRING COPRODUCTION

 

Florentina Holzinger and Vincent Riebeek form what may well be Europe’s most controversial performance- duo. For Schönheitsabend they have drawn inspiration from their illustrious predecessors, those who reinvented dance (and themselves) at the beginning of the 20th century by creating taboo-breaking ballets full of exotic fictions, shifts in the balance of power, sex and reversed male- female roles. Holzinger and Riebeek have taken Sheherazade by the famous Ballet Russes as one of their starting points for a dance duet in three acts. In addition to frenzy, ecstasy and explicit eroticism, expect an homage to the star of the ballet Vaslav Nijinsky and a well-measured dose of camp. Those who saw Wellness at SPRING 2014 know enough: let’s go!
