Joeri Dubbe | Korzo producties, Nederlands Dans Theater
One of Korzo’s great choreographic talents is Joeri Dubbe. He won the Nederlandse Dansdagen Prize in 2011, the prestigious BNG Bank Prize for New Theatre Makers in 2012, and the Scapino Production Prize in 2014.
In CaDance 2015, Dubbe created the solo performance Infant, specially for dancer Sarah Murphy. A performance in which he explores the purity of our inner child. The uninhibited way a child has of looking at the world, offers an enchanting perspective on the way we have arranged our lives. With this solo as a starting point, he continued his research and added dancer Carolina Mancusco to the team. The trio delves into the magical, though also cruel world of a child. They move between two worlds: the harsh reality and the often hidden fantasy world. Icons of folklore are resurrected through games and are then driven to extremes. Slowly a world is created where they overcome their fears and embrace the power of their imagination.
