Two acclaimed works by Krisztina de Châtel, alongside exciting work by young talent Audrey Apers of SALLY’s Danslab. Three choreographies in which music plays a guiding role.
The triple bill (Im)Pulse presents de Châtel’s Pulse (2007) with music by György Ligeti. Dressed in costumes by fashion icon AZIZ, the dancers are swept away by Ligeti’s piano music like leaves in a storm. On initiative of SALLY Dance Company this classic is back on tour. “A piece worth seeing again,” NRC Handelsblad wrote in 2007.
Thirteen images from the dark land (2017) was commissioned by SALLY Dance Company. This was the first time in her career that de Châtel created a duet focused on human contact. To music by George Crumb and with live accompaniment by Ensemble 88, the choreography explores the human soul in the physical body.
In her new work Labour of love, Apers uses music and dance in a bid to transcend hierarchical relationships. In a live dialogue between Apers and her musical counterpart, the struggle for territory has to give way to working on common ground. Guided by intuition and instinct, the boundaries between disciplines are blurred in order to be able to step into the unknown.
