ITS OPENING Welcome to ITs - the festival for talented theatre graduates from the Netherlands, Europe and elsewhere! We are proud to announce that the festival will be opened by none other than the Dutch Minister of Education, Cultural Affairs and Science, Jet Bussemaker, who is very enthusiastic about the arts. This will be followed by the opening performance of Phaedra’s Love. The festive opening kicks off eight days of performances by dynamic talented youngsters, who can’t wait to take the Dutch and European stages by storm. ITs gives you a taste of the theatre of the future. Enjoy the festival!

GET DISCOVERED @ ITS FESTIVAL AMSTERDAM 2013 Once again, Amsterdam will be flooded with young, graduating talent. From Friday 21 until Friday 28 June fans of the theatre, presenters, casting directors and critics can come and acquaint themselves with a fresh wave of performing talents during ITs, International Theatre School Festival Amsterdam. Graduating actors, directors, mime performers, dancers, choreographers, playwriters, producers, technicians, and scenographers will take over the Amsterdam theatres and present themselves to wide audiences. ITs Festival Amsterdam is the

ideal stepping stone to a successful (international) career in the field of performing arts. Come and spot the new kings and queens of the stage both from the Netherlands and abroad. ITs is presenting more than fifty different productions. In addition, there will be an intensive off stage programme with discussions, workshops, pitches and lectures. And of course there will be lots of parties! ITs Festival Amsterdam is the biggest festival of its kind in Europe, drawing over 9.000 visitors each year. Follow ITs on

THEU BOERMANS Artistic Director ITs Festival Amsterdam The dust has settled and slowly the consequences of the cuts are beginning to sink in. Production houses have collapsed, as have a number of theatre and dance companies. They will be sorely missed. But after two years of crippling insecurity we can now get back to business with renewed energy, and set up new initiatives. We’re shaking off the negativity and getting back to work, with renewed courage. We are taking our cues from the youngest generation, which is combining artistic development with cultural entrepreneurship and reaching out to society to secure a firm rooting for their art. To prove that they fulfil a genuine need in society. This year we said a cheerful goodbye to our former General Director Jacqueline van Benthem. Over the past few years she has led ITs through many storms and thanks to her efforts, ITs can now call itself the biggest student festival in Europe. Thankfully, with her new job as Managing Director for the Compagnietheater, she will not be far away. Even

on a business level. We welcome the young Jasminka Beganovic as our new Managing Director. Another novelty in 2013 is our cooperation with NEU/NOW festival, organised by ELIA, the European League of Institutes of the Arts. As a pilot the theatre programme of this traveling multidisciplinary festival for students has been included in the ITs programme. You can easily find the selection, in which. I myself was lucky to have been involved, as it is marked with a yellow star.

more so than in former years, the Compagnietheater will be focusing explicitly on talent development, which means the ties between ITs and Compagnietheater will remain close. And within the ITs management we have also embraced the younger generation

Once again this year’s ITs presents all graduating actors, directors, mime artists, choreographers, dancers, scenographers and playwrights from the Netherlands, plus a selection of very special shows from abroad. Within the elated context of a festival we will be able to get introduced to these young people’s unique views on theatre, and on life. I wish everyone; visitors, participants, and our international guests, an inspiring festival. Enjoy the many, many good things the new generation has in store for us!

ACTIN

Phaedra loves Hippolytus, her stepson. But Hippolytus does not love her. So Phaedra kills herself. That’s the starting point. In this interpretation of Sarah Kane’s text (which in itself is an interpretation of Seneca’s text) we meet five actors: the cynical and self-centred Hippolytus, and four extravagant characters, including Phaedra. Hippolytus is lying on a bed that is set on a dirt floor. The others are crawling in the dirt, making grotesque movements, celebrating, and trying to get Hippolytus to let himself be sucked into their delusional universe. Phaedra houdt van Hippolytus, haar stiefzoon. Maar Hippolytus houdt niet van haar. Dus doodt Phaedra zichzelf. Dat is de basis. In deze interpretatie van Sarah Kane’s tekst (op zichzelf een interpretatie van Seneca) ontmoeten we vijf acteurs: de cynische, egocentrische Hippolytus, en vier extravagante personages waaronder Phaedra. Hippolytus ligt op een bed dat op een tapijt van aarde staat. De anderen kruipen op groteske wijze door de aarde, vieren feest en proberen Hippolytus mee te zuigen in hun wereld vol waanzin.

INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMMERS MEETING & PITCH ITs wants to support young performing artists in their struggle to find a place for themselves within the performing arts. This is why ITs invites a wide-ranging selection of (inter)national dance and theatre presenters each year to come and discover talented young makers. Last year this initiative helped over 70 performances to get booked at venues in the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Serbia, Iran and Turkey. And this year ITs is also organising an informal get-together with presenters and up-andcoming artists from the Netherlands and abroad. During this meet-and-greet you can get acquainted over a drink and during the ITs Pitch, two dozen young theatre and dance makers will pitch their work to you. Here, you can discover the stars of tomorrow during the pitch and help lay the foundations for these artists’ careers. To register, professionals only, contact Ben Visser at productie03@itsfestivalamsterdam.com

Freshly graduated from one of the Dutch theatre and dance schools they will be presenting themselves on a stage near you.

Previous editions of NEU/NOW LIVE have enjoyed the hospitality of host cities including Vilnius, Tallinn, Nantes, and Porto, and this year it will make itself cozy in Amsterdam with the help of ITs Festival Amsterdam. The festivals’ shared mission to promote work by young artists sparked the idea to collaborate in the field of performing arts. Hence, ITs will host the performing arts section of the NEU/NOW programme, featuring four performances in De Brakke Grond and the Compagnietheater. The synergy of these two powerhouse events means there will be plenty of room for exchange in between performances, during off stage programmes and at after parties….

Eight hundred toy soldiers, four windsocks, a costume for falling, a glasshouse, an elephant, a conveyor belt, Godzilla, a chandelier that can be worn, a slideshow of teeth, a miniature giant city and fifty yellow lightbulbs. A performance exists only for a moment. It is live. It is fleeting. It cannot be preserved. This is what is left. The remnants. The evidence of what has occurred. This is an exhibition to present the graduates from the Scenography Department at the Amsterdam Theaterschool. Achthonderd soldaatjes, vier windsokken, een kostuum om in te vallen, een broeikas, een olifant, een lopende band, Godzilla, een kroonluchter om te dragen, een diavoorstelling van tanden, een reusachtige miniatuurstad en vijftig gele peertjes. Een voorstelling bestaat maar even. Het is live. Het is vluchtig. Het kan niet worden geconserveerd. Dit is wat ervan over is. De restanten. Het bewijs van wat zich heeft voorgedaan.

Julian is a theatrical thinktank about right and wrong, privacy and public knowledge, about money, power, sex, but also about love and safety.

Regisseur Carina Molier en de studenten van Utrecht lieten zich inspireren door het brein achter de klokkenluiderssite Wikileaks: Julian Assange. Julian is een theatrale denktank over recht en onrecht, over privacy en openbaarheid, over geld, macht, seks, maar ook over liefde en geborgenheid. De acteurs kruipen in de huid van deze leider en proberen zijn motieven en levensvragen te duiden. Is Assange een held, op de vlucht voor machtige mogendheden, dader in een seksschandaal of slachtoffer van zijn eigen ego?

The pining, packed theatre landscape now presents: MOEREMANS AND SONS. Last year, the third-year students from the Arnhem theatre school formed an ad hoc theatre company led by director Sarah Moeremans, presenting My First Suicide during ITs. The successful collaboration evolved into a new theatre collective which is back for this year’s edition. Following the maxim ‘If you play, plug and play!’ the eleven actors and Sarah Moeremans are once again taking the world into their own hands in their graduation performance.

DE STAAT VAN DE MENS ‘You’re back.’ ‘I thought it was you. Your footsteps are still as quiet as they ever were. And you’re still wearing the same perfume.’ ‘If it works, stick with it.’ ‘Even if it’s about something as banal as hiding your stench.’ ‘That’s right.’ ‘I myself have given up perfume. And eccentric clothing. These days, all I wear is the truth.’ ‘Strong brand.’ ‘Strongest there is.’ ‘Although it does reek a little.’ ‘That depends on who’s wearing it.’ ‘Does it?’ ‘And besides, stench is a relative thing of course.’ ‘As is the truth.’

‘Je bent terug.’ ‘Ik dacht al dat jij het was. Je stappen klinken nog even geruisloos. En je hebt nog steeds dezelfde parfum.’ ‘Als iets werkt moet je het behouden.’ ‘Zelfs als het om iets banaals als het verhullen van je stank gaat.’ ‘Zo is dat.’ ‘Ik zelf ben gestopt met parfum. Net als met excentrieke kleding. Ik draag nu alleen nog de waarheid.’ ‘Sterk merk.’ ‘Het sterkste.’ ‘Stinkt wel een beetje.’ ‘Dat hangt er heel erg vanaf wie het draagt.’ ‘Is dat zo?’ ‘En daarnaast is stank natuurlijk zeer relatief.’ ‘Net als de waarheid.’

MIME OPLEIDING LICHTING ‘13 DE THEATERSCHOOL, MIME OPLEIDING, FOURTH YEAR, AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS

The graduate class of the Mime Department is a group of unique characters. Each of them has developed into a mime performer and theatre maker in a very personal style. Now the eight of them will share the stage one last time. They will be directed by Karen Røise Kielland (Blood for Roses). And so the class of 2013 will be saying goodbye to four years of being inseparable in their own thoughtprovoking, touching and playful way. De afstudeerklas van de Mime Opleiding bestaat uit eigenzinnige types. Allemaal ontpopten ze zich in geheel eigen stijl tot mimespeler en theatermaker. Nu staan de acht nog eenmaal gezamenlijk op het podium. De regie is in handen van Karen Røise Kielland (Blood for Roses). En zo neemt de lichting van 2013 op prikkelende, ontroerende en speelse wijze afscheid van vier jaar onafscheidelijkheid.

Marte Boneschansker and Leendert de Ridder are visiting people up and down the country. They are talking to rabbis, shamans, evolutionary biologists and porn stars. They are asking questions: What’s your name? Are you an honest person? Are we going to make it? What does it take to win? Does God exist? They want to know what these people believe in. They want to be believers themselves. Desperate for something to hold onto, they have made De GroteMensenShow, a show about grown-ups, made for grown-ups. Marte Boneschansker en Leendert de Ridder trekken het land in. Ze praten met rabbijnen, met sjamanen, met evolutiebiologen en pornosterren. Ze stellen vragen: Hoe heet u? Bent u eerlijk? Gaan we het redden? Wat is er nodig om te winnen? Bestaat God? Ze willen weten waar deze mensen in geloven. Ze willen zelf geloven. In een poging zich ergens aan vast te kunnen klampen maken ze De GroteMensenShow, over en voor grote mensen.

Everyone is ****ed straight in the **** by love. Grief. Pain. Confusion. Deception. Embarrassment. Loathing. Laughter. Screams. Roars. In an apocalyptic roller coaster of short scenes two young pessimists are dragging us along in their completely failed attempts at finding nuance. Love is a dirty piece of **** and that’s what it will always be. Yannick van de Velde and Tom van Kalmthout share their views on love in 30 minutes of absurdism. Iedereen wordt keihard in de **** ge****t door de liefde. Verdriet. Pijn. Verwarring. Ontgoocheling. Gêne. Walging. Lachen. Gieren. Brullen. In een apocalyptische achtbaan van korte scènes nemen twee jonge pessimisten je mee in een totaal mislukte zoektocht naar nuance. Liefde is en blijft een vieze ****. Yannick van de Velde en Tom van Kalmthout laten in 30 absurde minuten hun kijk op de liefde zien. CONCEIVED & PERFOR-

Two aging brothers. Karl is a former revue artist, Robert a former stage actor. Accompanied by Mathilde, Karl’s life partner, they see each other every week. When Mathilde dies, the brothers try to keep up the ritual. A very moving performance about the desire for human contact. Twee broers op leeftijd. Karl is een ex-variété artiest, Robert een voormalig toneelspeler. In het gezelschap van Mathilde, de levensgezellin van Karl, zien ze elkaar wekelijks. Wanneer Mathilde overlijdt, proberen de broers hun ritueel in stand te houden. Een ontroerende voorstelling over de wens naar menselijke contact.

STUDIO/MENSINK/VANDERBROECK is made up of performance art graduates Marius Mensink and Dennis Vanderbroeck, a duo you may know from an earlier piece called FREMDKÖRPER. RAUM is the second show in a series which they based on David Lynch’s mysterious thriller Lost Highway. Two men, trapped in a parallel universe, are struggling with their fear of each other, and their desire for each other. Balancing between illusionism, theatre and mime, this performance inexplicably manages to fuse the performers with the space in which they are performing.

VEUVE NOIRE

There is a limited amount of pain one can endure and after that you start to forget. It is but long before the pain becomes your mother. Desolation is your mother. You must unravel who you are, before you can retrieve your way home.

Veuve Noire recaptures the canon of fatal women. Women who got injured along the way, and instead of attending their scars kept nursing the wounds inside of them. When does a woman turn radical, and instead of passing on life, starts passing on death?

TONEELACADEMIE MAASTRICHT, OPLEIDING TO THEATRAAL PERFORMER, FOURTH YEAR, MAASTRICHT, THE NETHERLANDS

De hoeveelheid pijn die een mens kan verdragen is beperkt. Vergetelheid treedt in als de grens bereikt is. De pijn wordt je moeder, de ellende wordt je moeder. Voordat je je weg naar huis vindt, moet je ontrafelen wie je bent.

DIRECTOR, TEXT AND

Veuve Noire toont het canon van de fatale vrouw. Het betreft vrouwen die onderweg gewond raken en die niet alleen hun littekens verzorgen, maar ook hun wonden blijven voeden. Wanneer wordt een vrouw een radicaal? Wanneer begint ze, in plaats van het leven, de dood door te geven?

We were born to do great things, but to tell the truth, we’d rather do nothing. And we must make sure that we’re all actually doing nothing, otherwise it would be an uneven battle. Thankfully we have the internet to keep an eye on each other. A girl applies her make-up to look pretty every day and then she goes and tries to get as much attention as she can. She’s struggling, with real feelings and with her first world problems. And sometimes she forgets the difference between the two. The answer is this: nothing.

We werden geboren voor grote dingen, maar eigenlijk doen we liever niets. En we moeten goed in de gaten houden of we wel allemaal écht niets doen, anders is het een oneerlijke strijd. Gelukkig hebben we internet om op elkaar te letten. Een meisje maakt zich elke ochtend mooi op om vervolgens interessant te gaan doen. Ze worstelt met echte gevoelens en met first world problems. En soms weet ze het verschil daartussen niet meer. De oplossing is dit: niets.

Two professors, born in the wrong decade (the eighties) are the heads of a think-tank. With self-assuredness and directness they study questions regarding human existence using live experiments. They have developed a flourishing existentialist philosophy, full of good intentions. But what is the use of a body that is dedicated to thinking about problems, yet refuses to take action?

Richard Wagner wrote this first part of his tetralogy Der Ring des Nibelungen as an unmitigated attack on capitalism. His 14-hour epic-moralistic musical spectacle, which he populated with jealous gods, lascivious dwarves and passionate water nymphs was an attempt to reunite Germany which had fallen apart into federal states and dukedoms. Using some woollen blankets, a CD player and their imagination, five students from the famed Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen are bringing their interpretation into the limelight. As deeply personal as it is committed, and shamelessly moralistic.

Cooking Marmitako is a piece in which nine performers draw their social, political and emotional maps while cooking a marmitako for the audience. With extracts from Rodrigo Garcia’s texts as a backdrop, the show takes the sharing of different cultures and experiences as its starting point. At the end of the show, the dish will be served to the audience.

PAP Showcase is the result of the international pilot project PAP, Performing Arts Programme. Nine students from England, Italy and the Basque Country came together in Bilbao for nine months. During this time, they worked with several directors and developed their own pieces. And now they are touring Europe, visiting various festivals, including GIFT (GB) and IYMT partners BE Festival (GB) and ACT Festival in Bilbao. And of course they are coming to ITs! PAP is a life-forming experience, residency project and promotion platform for young makers rolled into one. As part of the project, the participants are taught by the international organisations involved in PAP, such as the Performing Arts Department of Leeds MET, Cricoteka from Krakow and the regular staff of Bizkaiko Antzerki Ikastegia (BAI). The initiator and organiser of this European experience is BAI.

Cooking Marmitako is een stuk waarin negen performers hun eigen sociale, politieke en emotionele landkaart tekenen door voor het publiek een marmitako te bereiden. Met fragmenten uit teksten van Rodrigo Garcia als achtergrond neemt de voorstelling het delen van verschillende culturen en ervaringen als uitgangspunt.

Because even in 2013, the black-white subject is no simple matter, and even now society is still imbued, across the ranks, with the colonial past. Using laughter and irony, in music, video and text, Face Off uncovers the current complexities. This is political theatre which is all-embracing; this is stand-up comedy with a heart.

THE SMELL OF NOTHING

THE DANISH NATIONAL SCHOOL OF PERFOMING ARTS, FOURTH YEAR, COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

In a mix between theatre, performance art and Butoh, The Smell of Nothing engages the audience in a quest for human identity. From an amoeba, living its underwater life, via a creature taking its first steps on solid ground, to a copulating animal that slowly becomes human. Man, the one who survives, hunts, kills. Man, who acquires a name, a consciousness, and identity. Their travels in Japan inspired the members of Loop Soup Company to create this piece. With their personal stories they uncover some existential extracts from human history. Met een combinatie van theater, performance en butoh neemt The Smell of Nothing het publiek mee op een reis naar de menselijke identiteit. Van een amoebe, levend onder water, naar een wezen dat de eerste stappen op vaste grond zet, naar een copulerend dier dat langzaamaan mens wordt. De mens, die overleeft, jaagt, doodt. De mens, de een naam krijgt, een bewustzijn, een identiteit. Op reis door Japan deden de leden van Loop Soup Company inspiratie op. Met hun persoonlijke verhalen ontbloten ze existentiële fragmenten uit de menselijke geschiedenis.

Photo albums revive our memories while our dreams are where we process them. Lucie Páchová has taken her grandmother’s photo album as a starting point for this multimedia performance, adding images from her own dreams. Unorthodox longings, subconscious desires, unexplained events and extraordinary physical opportunities rise to the surface. Using video, music, light and performance she creates a dream world in which the audience is invited to recall its own memories.

A woman undresses and dresses, undergoing a true metamorphosis. For UN/ DRESS, dance maker Masako Matsushita has examined the consumerism and excess in our society today. Using an ostentatiously simple set of tools she explores the meaning of clothes and questions the role of the body in our times. A revealing solo in which body and object become one.

Meet Johnny. Johnny hates indifference, he has no faith in the future, and usually disagrees. In nine encounters Johnny wards off the end of the world, an empty space is being guarded, and two lovers lose each other. A surprisingly hopeful portrait in which everyone seems to be meeting the wrong person and nobody ever seems to get home. Ontmoet Johnny. Johnny haat onverschilligheid, gelooft niet in de toekomst en is het meestal oneens. In negen ontmoetingen bezweert Johnny het einde van de wereld, wordt een lege ruimte bewaakt en zijn twee geliefden elkaar kwijt. Een onverwacht hoopvol portret waarin iedereen de verkeerde lijkt te ontmoeten en niemand ooit thuiskomt.

Only the two heads are found intact. The investigation leads police commissioner Jasselin and his assistant Ferber into the realm of visual art, where the unknown artist Jed Martin has shot to fame overnight with his exhibition The map is more interesting than the territory.

Bertha is an only child. Outside it’s cold, but father is always warm. He gazes through his spectroscope in a sweat; his police uniform is sticking to his body. Mother is shivering because her heart is cold. There is not much to do in the village where Bertha lives, but thankfully there’s Nojd. He knows what love is. Her parents don’t. A divorce is looming, but for now, Bertha’s parents are clinging to the plans they must make for Bertha’s future. A battle that blurs the boundaries between love and hate.

Bertha is enig kind. Buiten is het koud, maar vader heeft het altijd warm. Zwetend kijkt hij door zijn spectroscoop, zijn politie-uniform plakt aan zijn lijf. Moeder bibbert, want haar hart is koud. In het dorp waar Bertha woont is niet veel te doen, maar gelukkig is er Nojd. Hij weet wat liefde is. Haar ouders niet. Een scheiding ligt op de loer, maar haar ouders klampen zich wanhopig vast aan de invulling van Bertha’s toekomst. Een strijd waarin de grens tussen liefde en haat vervaagt.

You stress out over money and your career, you exercise, you join the queue like everyone else, you paint your house, you move the clocks back an hour. You fall ill, get well, buy stuff, take out the dry cleaning and you move the clocks forward an hour. All your life you wait for happiness to land on your doorstep. And then you die. People are saddened, they have a good cry, and then they go to lunch. Je bent heel je leven bezig alles te willen hebben wat je niet hebt.

Titus is about to become Emperor of Rome and finds himself forced to end his relationship with the love of his life, the Palestinian Berenice. He appoints Antiochus, who has been secretly in love with Berenice for years, to take her back to her native country. Director Diepenhorst recognised the psychological paralysis of his generation in this French classicist soap. Berenice is a play about love and sacrifice, but most importantly about the warm blanket of self-pity that makes for such exquisite wallowing. Titus staat op het punt keizer van Rome te worden en ziet zich gedwongen de relatie met de liefde van zijn leven, de Palestijnse Berenice, te verbreken. Hij geeft Antiochus, al jaren heimelijk verliefd op Berenice, de opdracht haar terug naar haar land van herkomst te brengen. Regisseur Diepenhorst herkende in deze Franse classicistische soap de psychische lamgeslagenheid van zijn eigen generatie. Berenice is een voorstelling over liefde en opoffering, maar gaat vooral over de warme deken van zelfmedelijden waarin het zo heerlijk zwelgen is.

The polar ice is melting, unveiling potential riches. Somewhere in the polar region lies Hans Island, a big rock measuring 1.3 square kilometre. Nobody owns it at the moment, which means it belongs to everyone. Canada and Denmark are both claiming it as a national area, hoisting their respective flags in turn. Then, a Danish soldier and one from Canada are dropped there, accidentally at the same time, and the question: ‘Who owns Hans Island?’ demands an urgent reply. A performance about high stakes, planting flags, and a possible world war. Het poolijs smelt en onthult potentiële rijkdom. In het poolgebied ligt Hans Eiland, een grote rots van 1,3 vierkante meter. Het is nog van niemand, dus van iedereen. Canada en Denemarken claimen het allebei als nationaal gebeid en hijsen er afwisselend hun vlag. Dan worden een Deense en een Canadese militair er toevallig op hetzelfde moment gedropt en dient de vraag: ‘Van wie is Hans Eiland?’ snel beantwoord te worden. Een voorstelling over grote belangen, het planten van vlaggen en een mogelijke wereldoorlog.

artistic leader dance ITs Festival Amsterdam

‘I am most looking forward to the work presented by the dance academies and the level of quality of the schools in the Netherlands and beyond, and the choreographers coming from there. ITs brings a wealth of influences and information to Amsterdam, which allows different artists to talk to each other about the contrasts and the similarities between their disciplines.’ JASPER VAN LUIJK, WINNER OF THE ITS CHOREOGRAPHY AWARD 2012, NOW BACK AT ITS 2013 WITH QUITE DISCONTINUOUS

The last few months have finally revealed the state of the Dutch (subsidized) dance landscape. All of last year’s speculations are no longer necessary. Some facts: no more Noord Nederlandse Dans, no more Dance Works Rotterdam, less money for research and production houses, no more Station Zuid… It is a hard reality: not just facts and figures, but real people without employment. At times it has felt like mourning. And - as in life - after a period of mourning, we move on and adjust to the new situation, a situation that will demand even more determination, discipline and dedication. Let’s not forget to remember what we DO have. Let’s welcome and celebrate this year’s dancers and choreographers, who I am sure will give us a reason to be hopeful about the future.

“In the beginning, there was nothing, just a yawning abyss veiled in mists. The wind was blowing without definition. And then came the word…and the burrowing could begin.” The Belgian choreographer Chris De Feyter was a top athlete, a circus artist, a dancer and a choreographer. Each of his career choices reflects his fascination with the possibilities the body offers. With the uniquely creative fourth-year students from the Modern Theatre Dance course he has gone in search of the communicative options of that body. It has resulted in an unorthodox and energetic group piece. “In het begin was er niets, enkel een diepe afgrond gehuld in nevel en mist. De wind blies onbestemd. En toen kwam het woord ... en kon het wroeten beginnen.” De Belgische choreograaf Chris De Feyter was topsporter, circusartiest, danser en choreograaf. In zijn beroepskeuzes proef je zijn fascinatie voor de mogelijkheden van het lichaam. Met de eigengereide vierdejaars van de Opleiding Moderne Theaterdans ging hij op zoek naar de communicatiemogelijkheden van dat lichaam. Een onorthodox en energiek groepswerk is het resultaat.

QUITE DISCONTINUOUS WINNER OF THE ITS CHOREOGRAPHY AWARD 2012

OCHORPEHY GRA

Last year Jasper van Luijk won the ITs Choreography Award, and now his latest performance Quite Discontinuous is presented at ITs. Van Luijk tries to capture his fascination with lifelessness in text and movement. How do we respond to the death of a loved one? How does a group redefine itself when one of its members is missing? And how does our perspective on ourselves and our relationship with others shift when death has entered our lives? Jasper van Luijk won vorig jaar de ITs Choreography Award en nu staat zijn nieuwe voorstelling Quite Discontinuous op ITs. Met tekst en beweging probeert Van Luijk zijn fascinatie voor levensloosheid te vangen. Hoe reageren we op de dood van een dierbare? Hoe herdefinieert een groep zich als er een speler ontbreekt? En hoe verschuift ons perspectief op onszelf en de relaties met anderen als de dood dichtbij is gekomen?

KILL YOUR DARLINGS ARTESIS HOGESCHOOL ANTWERPEN, KONINKLIJK CONSERVATORIUM, OPLEIDING DANS, FOURTH YEAR, ANTWERP, BELGIUM

For their solo performances, the students from the Antwerp dance school were asked to answer the question Who am I? for themselves. For Fée Roels this assignment formed the kick-off to an extensive self-examination of her current ‘I’ and future self. In her slightly absurdist solo Kill Your Darlings she allows us to share in her search. Voor hun solo moesten de dansstudenten van de opleiding dans in Antwerpen de vraag Wie ben ik? voor zichzelf beantwoorden. Voor Fée Roels vormde deze opdracht het startsein voor een uitgebreid zelfonderzoek naar de huidige ‘ik’ en de toekomstige. In haar licht absurde solo Kill Your Darlings maakt ze ons deelgenoot van deze zoektocht.

Humans are poetic beings. Each body drags with it the scar of its birth. In the confrontation with everyday life, the being forgets this wound, which is discreetly taken care of by our silent poetry. The solo Corps du délit creates an opening for that weak winged angel in charge of our poetic injury. It offers the floor to the one who doesn’t speak, the one who hesitates. Mensen zijn poëtische wezens. Ieder lichaam sleept het litteken van de geboorte met zich mee. In de confrontatie met het dagelijks leven vergeten we die wond, die discreet verzorgd wordt door onze stille poëzie. De solo Corps du délit biedt ruimte aan de engel, die de zorg voor ons kwetsuur op zich neemt. Het biedt een platform aan diegene die niet spreekt maar aarzelend naar woorden zoekt.

LIQUIDE GOLD DANISH NATIONAL SCHOOL OF PERFORMING ARTS, FOURTH YEAR, COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

Marie Helen Andersson has taken the solo Liquid Gold made by Lucy Suggate as her point of departure and made her own interpretation, improvising within a set structure. The movements of her supple body are mesmerising, fragile and sensual as we watch the dancer change. From a human being into liquid gold.

ACADEMY OF PERFORMING ARTS, ACTING, FOURTH YEAR, SARAJEVO, BOSNIA & HERCEGOVINA

Marie Helen Andersson nam de solo van Liquid Gold van Lucy Suggate als uitgangspunt en goot het in haar eigen vorm. Het soepele lichaam beweegt al improviserend binnen een strakke structuur. Betoverend, breekbaar en sensueel zien we de danser veranderen. Van mens, naar vloeibaar goud. Lucy Suggate

Two swans. Odette is innocent and gentle, while Odile seduces us with her free behaviour and sensuality. Based on the classic Swan Lake and the film Black Swan this show sees ratio and emotion, courage and fear, restriction and courage battle it out. Twee zwanen. Odette is onschuldig en zacht terwijl Odile ons verleidt met haar vrijheid en sensualiteit. Gebaseerd op de klassieker Het Zwanenmeer en de film Black Swan vechten ratio en emotie, moed en angst, restricties en vrijheid om voorrang.

ITs has given the students from Berlin 40 minutes to present their school. The young choreographers have taken this forfeit as their starting point and divided the minutes equally among the 13 class mates. In a series of shortcuts the thirteen mini-choreographies are juxtaposed and engage in a dialogue on the spot. The result is an exciting choreographic experiment. ITs gaf de studenten uit Berlijn 40 minuten om hun opleiding te presenteren. De jonge choreografen namen deze beperking als uitgangspunt en verdeelden de minuten exact over de 13 klasgenoten.
