A performance about the longing for consolation and tranquility to music by Arvo Pärt

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. The tranquility and silence in Pärt’s work are just as important as the musical notes. It is this ‘music of silence’ that brought together choreographer Samir Calixto and the Amsterdam Cello Octet to create Summa. Pärt called the Cello Octet ‘ein Goldstück’ and wrote compositions specially for them that now form the basis for Summa. With great concentration, eight ‘cellists and two dancers present a synthesis of the music and knowledge that is locked inside our bodies: a ‘summa’ of our human complexity.

Summa is a Korzo production and is financially supported by the City of The Hague, Fonds Podiumkunsten, Prins Bernard Cultuurfonds, VSB Fonds, Zabawas and M.A.O.C. Gravin van Bylandt Stichting.

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.

Theater De Spiegel

Two people discover that they are stuck in a small space, a box. They can't get rid of each other anymore. There is confusion, fear and unfamiliarity. Gradually they get to know each other with the necessary tensions, collisions, caresses and emotions.
