Discover the latest generation
of dance makers
The 2021 BNG Bank Dance Prize winners will go on tour in the form of DansClick 23. The performances are accompanied by video portraits and afterwards the audience will have the opportunity to speak with the creators and dancers. The Après Dance is an essential part of the DansClick to bring creators and audiences together and have a conversation about dance. DansClick is a unique way of touring that connects the new generation of choreographers to a potential dance audience and programmers of several Dutch theaters.
Piet van Dycke - On Point
Two men balance on each other and through space. They stagger and falter, navigating through shoulders and obstacles. They’re searching for support. But are trying to exist without it. They keep each other in balance but take each other out of it too. A flirtation with risk. On Point is funny and dangerous at the same time. Is it an absurd game, a teasing punch or subdued competition? Do you dare trusting the other or are you at risk while doing so? Both performers, schooled in acrobatics duel with relationships in a wordless and humorous performance that starts off small and slowly grows out to being a metaphor for risky human relationships.
Dalton Jansen - To the Edge 3
With To the Edge 3 Dalton Jansen claims space for a radically soft statement about power, masculinity and friendship. Under the guise of great craftsmanship, he creates a dynamic stage in which he gives the audience a sneak preview into the interwoven lives of the two performers and a spoken word artist.
Their struggles become visible as well as the ways in which they unite for a challenge and support, motivate, tease and celebrate one another. Dalton Jansen recognizes each person’s individuality and natural appearance and allows for an accumulation of qualities at the same time. In To the Edge 3 he demonstrates a surprising view of a masculine gathering in a different reality. No bluffing, no fighting, but a loving search of tension and shimmer. And how all of that, can make you shine.
