The Square2

Commissioned by and for Scapino Ballet Rotterdam

With a subtle hint to Dante’s La Divina Commedia, the four creators of The Square 2 translate the journey from the inferno to paradise to the here and now and the personal challenges of the corona era. Propelled by live music with elements from dance and ambient, the dancers go in search of inner renewed strength and insight.

The stage as a meeting place: that is the starting point of The Square. A new series of full-length performances by up-and-coming talent in which artistic collaboration plays a central role.

In this second edition, an international company of young dance makers goes on an adventure with Dutch musician and producer Richard van Kruysdijk. The choreographers each bring their own style and background and together they create an energetic performance that surprises and disrupts.
