You are looking at a performance from our archive

The New Yorker Trajal Harrell and the Hungarian Eszter Salamon are both choreographers who like to play around with the fascinating interplay between the performer and the audience, between the one dancing and the one watching. Harrell, who also appeared in last year’s Holland Festival, mixes voguing, house and contemporary dance and will present a new work for four dancers. Salamon will stage a new version of her choreography Reproduction for eight dancers. Both works refer to the way the body is used in marketing and advertising, challenging our views of sexuality and identity. By commissioning these two works, the Swedish Cullberg Ballet sets out a new course under the artistic direction of Gabriel Smeets.
