INTRODANS IN THE EUSEBIUS

From 17 September 2020, Introdans will dance a new creation by Regina van Berkel in the Eusebiuskerk. With sustained resonance, Van Berkel creates a dance installation for 28 Introdans dancers that is performed in a striking and impressive monument in the center of Arnhem. The Van Dingstee quartet provides live music. Due to the corona crisis, artistic director Roel Voorintholt redefined Introdans' artistic programme. In the Eusebius he found an inspiring but also practical location, one that gives the dancers and the audience a lot of space. The first rehearsal period came about via video calling. In June, rehearsals started in small groups in Introdans studios.

This performance will premiere on September 17. Ticket sales start on August 17 via Stadstheater Arnhem.

Regina van Berkel, Dutch-born but now resident in Germany, has twice made a guest choreography at Introdans in recent years: the company has danced her extraordinarily successful choreographies Memory of a Shape and Frozen Echo. What’s more, things really clicked between the dancers and Van Berkel. Voorintholt recounts: “Something really happened in the studio, the dancers matured even more through the collaboration with Regina.”
Now Van Berkel is making a new creation specially for Introdans, performed by an extra-large cast of dancers. In the Eusebiuskerk all dancers dance together in sustained resonance. After this, Van Berkel makes a theater version that is part of the program AMAZING ASIA (on tour from October). Moreover, Van Berkel will work together with the well-known Dutch string quartet Van Dingstee Kwartet, where the musicians will share the stage with the dancers. This group will be performing various works, including compositions by the Chinese composer Zhou Long and the American composer Alan Hovhaness.
