Choreographic jewel as a dance prelude
As a dance prelude for our upcoming performances of «Das Triadische Ballett» in Munich's Prinzregententheater, the Bavarian Junior Ballet Munich will present Hans van Manen’s «Concertante» set to the music of Frank Martin. At their core, Hans van Manen’s ballets are about the complexities of human relationships. His unique and immediately recognisable choreographic language highlights the subtleties that all too often go unnoticed in daily life. His ballets typically show dancers in postures of an almost electrically charged physicality, which celebrate the strengths of their individuality. Originally created for the young ensemble of the Netherlands Dance Theatre II in 1994, «Concertante» has lost none of its original charm. The timeless beauty of its group sections, trios and duets and the shimmering iconic unitards designed by van Manen’s longtime collaborator Keso Dekker continue to thrill audiences to this day.
