Due to its great success and wonderful reception by press and audiences, the dazzling dance performance STORM returns to Dutch stages.

“A breath of fresh air once again to experience dance where musicians and dancers challenge, inspire, complement and replenish each other on stage. The fact that composer Calliope Tsoupaki manages to create breathtaking musical moments for this is in itself worth a visit to this dance festival.” (Theaterkrant) (translated version)

STORM is a unique collaboration between Calliope Tsoupaki and choreographers Andrea Leine and Harijono Roebana; between a composer who dares to think from movement and choreographers who give shape to sound. Vital emotions and order, dance and music meet in a storm-like performance with six dancers and three musicians.

“A beautiful polyphony of LeineRoebana-style movements mixed with Greek folk dance, music from different directions and the howl of a stranded seal.”(Het Parool) (translated version)

STORM sounds threatening, but dance and music are intimate, like an incantation from the storm. Sound and movement evoke echoes of ancient Greek folk festivals, alternately ritualistic and emotions. Elements such as circular movements, restrained energy as silence before the storm and the passion of Greek dance and music form the basis. This echo gains momentum through the joint new organising principles with which Calliope Tsoupaki and LeineRoebana fuse dance and music.

STORM is a roller coaster of dance and music: from supported movement, iconic gestures and ritual precision to restrained and direct emotions performed by a young cast of six dancers and musicians: David Kweksilber on (bass) clarinet, David Mackor on theorbo and Dominique Chabot on double bass. The young fashion designer Carlijn Veurink adds a layer with her autonomous sculptural costumes.
