Q4: Quantified Sarada Sarita / ISH

Part of We Are Public

A new generation of dance makers present an original mixture of styles and social statement

The twenty-first edition of DansClick presents the winners of the 2019 BNG Dance Prize: Sarada Sarita and Christian Yav & Sedrig Verwoert. This combination makes for a challenging playbill that not only introduces new creatives, but also an original mixture of styles. The makers introduce themselves in video portraits and afterward invite the audience to enjoy drinks and chat about the performance.

Q4: Quantified

Sarada Sarita is the figurehead of the Dutch New Way Vogue. Q4: Quantified is much more than a showcase for the challenging dance style New Way Vogue, performed by the best dancers in this style. In this performance, Sarita gives a political dimension to the expressive, stylized, and almost spiritual combination of vogue, hair hanging, and spoken word. Through the mesmerizing voice of vocalist Guillermo Blinker (alias Otion) she calls for equality, compassion, and transcending parochialism. With near impossible arm movements, executed with great precision, and fluid flexible poses, Sarita lets her dancers break out of geometric patterns. Form and content combine perfectly in this aesthetically intriguing performance with an activist undertone.

They/Them

Watching them in their original choreography They/Them one would think that Christian Yav and Sedrig Verwoert had for years formed an inseparable duo, by the way they move together so easily and complement each other all over the stage. They are equal to each other in every way and bring out the best in each other. In They/Them, they mix movements from various styles into a black mating dance with royal allure. In this autobiographical duet about racism, toxic masculinity, and queerphobia, they explore the boundary between pain and pleasure. Their performance leaves an indelible impression – as a spectator, you can’t let them out of your sight. In February 2019, Christiaan and Sedrig received the first Leo Spreksel Award. Two creatives to watch in coming years!

SUMMA

Samir Calixto | Cello Octet Amsterdam, Korzo

The iconic music of Arvo Pärt is a source of inspiration for many people because of its timeless and almost ethereal quality. The purity and freedom of his music touches on the longing for consolation and tranquility in times of confusion and unrest.

Ryan Djojokarso | Jong Korzo

Ryan Djojokarso makes playful, funny, and moving performances where he mixes dance with sports and games. This time we’re playing hide and seek. With Josje who likes cars and Anton who likes to dress as Cinderella, with tough girl Kim and cry-baby Seth, and with Rick who’d rather play with Frank because he’s secretly in love with him.
