In February 2021, after months of rehearsals, Conny Janssen Danst was ready to start touring with the new production FRAMED. However, with the premiere night approaching, more stringent measures for Covid 19 were reinstated: theatres remained closed. Just like the dancers worked on Monuments in Solitude and DANSLOKAAL during the first lockdown, we also embarked on a new project during the second lockdown: FRAMED Extended. Conny Janssen invited three dancers to commence a choreographic research inspired by FRAMED. During the days that were initially scheduled for the FRAMED tour, new work emerged.
“What makes it so special is that, during this period, we tapped into an enormous creative energy well, providing space and attention for the dancers’ additional talents. For this choreographic research, I asked the dancers to use FRAMED as a source of inspiration, an anchor, and, subsequently, spread their wings and adopt their own approach. What we did here was a germination process of new talents.” – Conny Janssen
The KAAPSE ZOMER programme includes three performances:
New: FRAMED Extended (June 9-20 )
The results of a choreographic research with FRAMED as a starting point, having developed into three versatile, self-contained, choreographies by Yanaika Holle, Hiro Murata and Mariko Shimoda.
DANSLOKAAL (June 23-27)
The annual talent development project for young makers. KAAPSE ZOMER features a selection of three works from the sixth and eighth edition of DANSLOKAAL by makers Andreas Hannes (Dansateliers), Tu Hoang and Dalton Jansen.
