What does it mean to dance together? How do you build a community? Do you have to share the same values? Supported by Opera Ballet Vlaanderen, the Argentinian choreographer Lisi Estaras will be working for a year with a diverse group of fifty dancers from Ghent around encounter, intimacy and understanding. Their identities and backgrounds form the basis for this large-scale dance theatre performance. For the occasion, the Ghent opera hall will be converted into a spectacular ballroom in which the at times stirring, then melancholic, tangos of the Argentinian composer Eduardo Rovira lead the dance. This undeservedly unknown tango innovator mingles musical influences from the most diverse styles in his compositions. That is precisely why they are the perfect soundtrack for the highly diverse stories that the inhabitants of the city of Ghent carry with them. A new society as a hybrid construction: the foundation for A Bigger Thing.
Performances on the 15, 16 and 17 September 2022, more information here.
