Samam means ‘to gather’ or ‘to be together’ in Sankrit. This duet was originally made for De Hermitage (‘Friends of the Hermitage’) inspired by the special exhibition Classic Beauties.
Samam is a moving duet with a poetic atmosphere. Indian footwork, graceful hand movements, expressive eyes and contemporary dance come together in a unique and powerful way.
The music is a recording of a Philip Glass composition performed by the harpist Lavinia Meijer, and can be adapted if desired. The costumes can -depending on the atmosphere and the context of the event- be adapted to create the desired look.
original version of 10 minutes (duration can be adjusted)
A duet about passion and sensuality set to tango music by Piazolla. Themes such as passion, desire, jealousy and sensuality form the basis of the choreography. The Libertango music serves as the basis for the duet where fiery footwork is combined with contemporary dance movements.
This solo is danced by Indu Panday, one of the best Indian dancer in the Netherlands. She is accompanied live by bass guitarist Mark Haanstra. A surprising combination of bass guitar music and traditional inspired dance. Tara means star in Sanskrit. In this solo the tension between silence and sound and the gravitational pull of stars on the earth can be felt.
This striking solo is danced by the well-known break dancer Denden Karadeniz musically accompanied by live vocals by the Indian Sashwathi Jagadish. With her sharp South Indian voice, this urban dancer is challenged to present herself in a vulnerable position without losing strength. Rhythms, floor work, hand gestures and fluidity all come together in this powerful and moving solo.
Water under Snow (5)
Here we see dancers in an intimate and playful duet with the unique dance language of Kalpanarts on a Finnish music composition.
Stream or Touch (6)
Is a dance duet about touch and removal. The dancers tempt each other into rapprochement.
All solos & duets can be performed in both large locations and very small spaces. The duets last about 10-15 minutes but can also be presented longer or shorter. The costumes can -depending on the atmosphere- and the context of the event, be adjusted to create the desired look.
