FORCES OF MOVEMENT

Dutch National Ballet at Lowlands Festival 2014

Dutch National Ballet returns to Lowlands this summer after the successful performance the company did in 2011.

Corps
In Corps (1985), a ballet from the masterchoreographer Hans van Manen, twelve men form a close group. Twelve tough men in short, black outfits. But three women cause a stir.

Ballet 101
The Canadian choreographer Eric Gautier used traditional balletposes for a humoristic 'crash course' in classical ballet. First, he shows them in the correct order but he mixes them up afterwards. A challenging solo.

Swanlake – Black Swan - pas de deux
Swanlake (1877) by choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with the magical music by Pjotr Iljitsj Tsjaikovski is one of the highlights in the classic-romantical balletgenre and was the starting point for the movie Black Swan two years ago. The pas de deux of the Black Swan is a spectaculair piece of pure virtuosity and expressivity.
