5 Sundays / 40 euro

Can we become one in a society where individualism is rampant? And what would that unity look like? As a pre-study for his upcoming piece MAGENTA (2019), award-winning choreographer Giulio D'Anna invites (amateur)dancers to create a group choreography this summer during five workshops in a beautiful garden that is De Tolhuistuin.

About the workshop:
With a group of twenty amateur and professional dancers you will work on structured dance improvisation techniques and assignments, based on collaboration. Diriving from individual movement, the choreographer creates a group choreography in the garden; collective body sculptures and synchronized rythms that lay bare human relationships.

About Giulio D’Anna:
Italian choreographer Giulio D'Anna had his international breakthrough in 2012 with the intimate performance Parkin’son that he made and danced together with his father. As a pre-study for his upcoming piece MAGENTA (2019) he now invites (amateur)dancers to participate in a series of workshops that are focused on connection, and that will result in a performance. With this, he researches what happens when people move together in harmony, in one rythm, as one body.
