I’m looking forward to the performance!

Period: Friday 5 February to Tuesday 11 May 2010 throughout The Netherlands
Together with artistic leader Ed Wubbe, Marco Goecke (whom Rudi van Dantzig christened the saviour of dance) and Georg Reischl, creator of physical lyricism, have been the face of Scapino for several seasons. In Goecke/Reischl (working title), they join forces to present two new choreographies.
Both choreographers are constantly in search of the new and demand almost impossible perfection of their dancers. But where Reischl interprets his themes in abstract dance, transporting his audience to a succession of enthralling physical worlds, Goecke is the quirky MC in a shadowy, spectral realm.
A brooding atmosphere, inventiveness and virtuoso syncopated movements faster than the eye can see, are typical Goecke elements. Despite shock at his dark, lyrical dance language, the dance world welcomed Goecke with open arms. Where Goecke explores a darker side, Reischl has a lighter touch, conjuring up a physical synergy between the dancers with his capricious, mercurial, and physical lyricism.
If Reischl is the poet, Goecke puts the rock ’n’ roll back into dance.
