The Square2 / Scapino Ballet Rotterdam
The stage as meeting point. That is the base of The Square, a new full-lenght production by Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, made by a collective of young choreographers.
In this second edition, an international collective of young makers will go on an adventure with an experienced musician. Mario Bermúdez Gil (Spain) is inspired by different cultures and rituals, Antonin Comestaz (France) creates playful pieces with his absurd and comical view of life and Gong XingXing (China) is seen as a great promise in her home country with her theatrical dance.
The foundation for The Square2 is the music of Richard van Kruysdijk. From minimal to thrusting, he creates collages with elements drom dance, musique concrète and ambient with an arsenal of electronics. In The Square2 he builds intuitive soundscapes that drive the dance, together with the dancers and choreographers.
