Temperaments of contemporary dance
29 November -14 December 2002
Halle Kalk, Köln
HEISS introduces to some of the newest tendencies that
can be found in contemporary European dance. The series is
inspired by Le Vif du Sujet, a project originating
from the Avignon Festival, that enables chosen interpreters
to work on a solo with the choreographer of their choice.
HEISS presents outstanding solo/duo productions that deal
with topics such as society and art in an entertaining and
critical way, while also seeking to create a discourse with
a present or fictive partner. Besides internationally renowned
artists, young and new ones have played an important role
in developing the program. The premiere that is being produced
by HEISS represents an invitation to a very special dancer
to develop a solo with a choreographer of her choice. She
chose a dynamic constellation that is sure to bring a fresh
wind to the dance scene.
Each 'artistic team' has a different temperament and a different
way of thinking and working, which makes it even more exciting
to experience the series. We would like to invite you to join
us so we can welcome you in the Halle Kalk.
HEISS is a project by tanz performance köln coproduced
