CONNY JANSSEN DANST - COURAGE - THIS SUMMER IN THE FERRO DANCE AND LIVE MUSIC AT A SPECIAL VENUE IN THE VIERHAVENS QUARTER OF ROTTERDAM
This summer, Conny Janssen Danst will be creating a poetic and alienating world on a rough industrial site. Janssen’s long-cherished dream of appearing with her dance company in the Ferro will finally be realized. The history of this imposing building, which is an impressive 3,500 m² in size and served as a gas holder until 1967, appeals to everybody’s imagination. The performance on location is running from 16 June until 10 July 2016 this summer. In addition, there will be a lively fringe programme including live music and dinner at the venue. Tickets sales through the Rotterdamse Schouwburg.

New adventure in the Ferro
In the huge round space of the Ferro, with neither beginning nor end, we see thirteen dancers and the headstrong musician Maartje Teussink. They are in an arena, enclosed by the audience, as if in a magic circle. The characters seem to exist outside the world, as if they form a separate community with its own codes and rituals. It is a highly imaginative world where the dancers’ naïveté and wonderment seem to guide the action on stage. Teussink is composing new music for this performance on location, a soundtrack ranging from classical opera to pop songs.

This performance is about the power of imagination, the richness of fantasy which only children still possess. About transforming the unknown into something familiar, where a bare plain is conjured into a habitable space.’ – Conny Janssen

It has been possible to see Janssen’s work in the theatre for the past two decades, but she has also acquired a great reputation for creating exceptional performances on location in Rotterdam and elsewhere – such as De Onderzeebootloods (2014), De RET Tramremise in Hillegersberg (2012), on top of a railswaystation De Hofbogen (2010) and De Van Nelle Ontwerpfabriek (2007). The newspaper Trouw gave five stars to MIRROR MIRROR (2014) in De Onderzeebootloods and wrote ‘Emotional, intuitive dance inside a carcass of steel and concrete […] What a beautiful, consoling performance.’

About Conny Janssen
Conny Janssen presents pure dance with a human touch. Once again, Janssen will select dancers of pronounced individuality to appear on stage as flesh-and-blood human beings – fragile, assertive and passionate. The choreographer’s motto: in a world which is becoming harsher and more inhuman, we must make room for personal, fragile stories.

Dance, live music and dinner on location
In every respect, this performance on location will be an allround experience of dance, live music and fringe entertainment. As in previous years, it will be possible to dine at the venue before the performance.
