Thursday night at the Rotterdamse Schouwburg…
Hyperfast, jerky, twitchy, compulsive and oddly mysterious tribute to Chet Baker
Two dancers and Bach!
Exciting, moving, raw, physical and a little scary. A touch of West Side Story
Sitting in the audience, I wished for a rewind and replay button. The performances had so much to say, but I am not fluent in dance and only understood snatches here and there.
Walking home, I thought of the strength, flexibility and control of the dancer’s bodies, and the years of hard work, commitment and practice it takes to move like water or air.
