Dansvoorstelling: “(No) Choice” door HKNLversations (entresol)
Aug 26 @ 20:00 – 21:30
Dansvoorstelling: “(No) Choice” door HKNLversations (entresol)

During the performance night “(No) Choice” several short dance theatre pieces will be shown. A central theme of these performances is ‘choice’. Do we always have a choice, and if so, what we do with the ability to choose. Can we choose to become a place of care and solitude amidst a multiplicity of dualities? Can we choice to escape of face it, or is the choice made for us?

Admission: € 10,-

Two separate pieces will be shown on this evening:

Performance 1:

“Muscari Armeniacum 2.0”
(Blauw druifje)
Muscari Armeniacum (grape hyacinth/blauw druifje) is a painterly symbol of tenderness, caring love and solitude. The initial choreographic idea was inspired by Damian Kapojos’ sculptures. The multiplicity of dualities in Kapojos work, made choreographer van Houten think of Jeroen Bosch ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’. While exploring both works in relation to each other she questioned what the place for ‘muscari armeniacum’ could be amidst the battle between the sexes, unity and disparity, good and evil. The first work performed under the name of Muscari Armeniacum during Art Rotterdam 2017 shows both the dualities, struggle, contrast as well as their hope for ‘tenderness, caring love and solitude’.

During continued artistic research the artists involved focused on relating the concept Muscari Armeniacum to Amsterdam as a city space. If we imagine Amsterdam as a Garden of Earthly Delight what are the different scenarios in terms of struggle/contrast as well as the potential of ‘tenderness, caring love and solitude’.
