Staunch, Krisztina de Châtel, Holland Festival 1987


Krisztina de Châtel's ballet "Staunch" was created in close collaboration with composer John McDowell and visual artist Peter Vermeulen. In this choreography, for which De Châtel was inspired during a three-month study trip in Senegeal and Ghana, the five different dancers try to manifest themselves as a close-knit group. This attempt is disrupted by spatial changes.
