(LA) HORDE & Ballet national de Marseille
Childs Carvalho Lasseindra Doherty
Unfortunately we have to cancel all performances of (La)Horde/Ballet National de Marseille due to a corona case in the company. We regret this very much, but due to our responsibility towards the artists, visitors and staff at Kampnagel we see no other option. "Safety First" is our strategy for a continued successful festival in pandemic times.
A contrasting ride through the history and ideas of dance with four style-defining female choreographers of different generations.
The French media and choreography collective (LA)HORDE has already been a guest at the Summer Festival with three of its own energetic works about contemporary dance cultures and forms of protest. In the meantime, the collective has taken over the direction of the Ballet national de Marseille and now composed a contrasting evening with four style-defining choreographers of different generations:
In 2015, the icon of postmodern dance Lucinda Childs was a festival guest already with her masterpiece of dance AVAILABLE LIGHT. 11 years ago, she created TEMPO VICINO for the Ballet national de Marseille and has now brought it into the present with the young ensemble: A dialogue between Childs' geometrically precise choreographic patterns and the irregular rhythms of minimal music protagonist John Adams. ONE OF FOUR PERIODS IN TIME (ELLIPSIS) by formal expressionist Tânia Carvalho outlines a ghostly group dance in which the expressive gestures of individual dancers are combined into choreographic tableaus and narratives. The first-ever group choreography by France's ballroom star and Mother of the »House of Ninja« Lasseindra Ninja, MOOD, is a celebration of inclusive, liberated sexuality and voguing, ballroom, club and fetish culture. And Belfast social realist Oona Doherty has now developed parts of her energetic solo about the ambivalent constructions of gender and class, HOPE HUNT, which already impressed 2020 Summer Festival audiences and neighborhoods, into a group choreography under the title LAZARUS – and thus gives this four-part celebration of difference an almost spiritual ending.
