Föld, Hungarian for earth, was made in 1985 for the Holland Festival. The press at the time declared it the ‘highlight’ of the festival, and the Föld has by now become one of the reference points of Dutch modern dance
In 2022 there will be a reprise tour of this performance.
Scala & Limited
Choreographer Krisztina de Châtel’s double bill Scala & Limited features five female dancers in Scala and a male solo in Limited. In this evening-length performance of two choreographies, De Châtel seeks to express a feeling that is in her view becoming increasingly widespread these days.
Krisztina de Châtel has made more than 70 choreographies and three dance films since 1977. Contrast, confrontation and especially space are important elements in Krisztina de Châtel’s work. The result is a “coherent oeuvre of choreographies in which the effect of plus and minus sometimes seems to be cancelled out; a wonder of balanced dance”, writes critic Isabella Lanz in the anniversary book ‘Dwars door de ruimte’ (2001).
Information about all the choreographies can be found on this website. There is also a special archive website with more photos, videos and reviews. This archive is only available in Dutch.
