Dance from North Rhine-Westphalia
Following years’ long collaboration within the European Dancehouse Network, at the invitation of Tanzhaus NRW Düsseldorf, Stary Browar will become the principal centre of the dance program of the season in Poland. Throughout October will we host in Poznań a large number of performances and art projects involving Polish and German artists
On the occasion of the season of the Culture of North Rhine-Westphalia in Poland, Raimund Hoghe is working on a premiere of a solo action inspired by the interior of Słodownia. The choreographer’s visual sensitivity, the poetic minimalist language of his movement and the architecture of Stary Browar are all components of an extraordinary, one-off artistic event that introduces us to one of the most intriguing figures of contemporary choreography!
“Pier Paolo Pasolini wrote of throwing the body into the fight. These words inspired me to go on stage. Other inspirations are the reality around me, the time in which I live, my memories of history, people, images, feelings and the power and beauty of music and the confrontation with one's own body which, in my case, does not correspond with conventional ideals of beauty. (…) I simply do what I have to do.”
Dance from North Rhine-Westphalia is a part of Tam’Tam: Season of Culture of North Rhine-Westphalia in Poland 2011/2012
