Introdans will tour again with MONUMENTAL. This is a quadriptych of choreographies with a monumental nature: the masterful Lieder Eines Fahrenden Gesellen, regarded as one of Jiří Kylián’s most romantic works, the recent Canto Ostinato and the electrifying Concerto by America’s ‘grand old lady’ Lucinda Childs and Memory of a Shape, an impressive work by choreographer Regina van Berkel which is being shown in the Netherlands for the first time.

Canto Ostinato
is one of the recent major successes in the Introdans repertoire. This is the second choreography made by Lucinda Childs, one of the ‘grand old ladies’ of American modern dance, specially for Introdans, in this case at the start of 2015. In Childs’ characteristic mathematical – or as she herself says ‘uncompromising’ – style, two pairs dance to the repetitive, hypnotising music of the same name by Simeon ten Holt: one moment calmly striding, the next bursting into powerful dance salvos. “Simple, pure and quite wonderful”, “leaves you wishing for much more”, said the dance critics.
