Dance Week Festival 2013

time: 26.05.2013. - 08.06.2013.
place: Zagreb, Croatia
organiser: Croatian Institute for Movement and Dance (HIPP)
30th Dance Week Festival will open on 26th May 2013, and it will last until June 8th 2013. As an introduction to the upcoming 30th Dance Week Festival, Zagreb Dance Centre will be hosting a performance of a piece by the Canadian choreographer Daniel Léveillé  - Solitudes Solo, on May 17th and 18th.

To better unveil his dancers, Daniel Léveillé subjects them to the test of the solo and to impossible choreographic scores. The infinite slowness of improbable sayings is now added to his last three works’ rough and syncopated dancing. A man holds a pose while falling in slow motion; a leg endlessly detaches itself from a body out of its axis. Minutes of eternity during which emotions come up to the surface. Unexpected softness, almost lyrical. Sublime beauty of intensely present dancers. To the sound of Bach violins that no human destiny could ever interfere with, they quickly pull themselves together; put on their armours anew. Clenched fists, glaring eyes, they leave again for the fight. Solitude is their battlefield.

Tickets for the festival go on sale on May 15th, at the Zagreb Dance Centre box office, Ilica 10.
