Antonin Comestaz | For All We Know
“Nederlands Dans Theater and Korzo present an ode to permanent creativity”
Okay. Here we are. Same players, new game. Head or tails? Four pioneers floating upside down. They embrace the things they know they don’t, to (re)discover the rules. Adjustable, foldable, ejectable. As rulers of infinite space.
The playful, absurdist tone and incredible movement inventiveness give the work of French choreographer Antonin Comestaz, who has settled in the Netherlands, a charm all his own. Behind the captivating lightness lies the seriousness and authentic drive of a multi-faceted creator we are going to hear a lot about. After several successful, short pieces, For all we know is his first performance that goes on tour and with which NDT and Korzo present him to the Dutch audience.
Antonin Comestaz (France, 1980) graduated from the Paris Opera Ballet School in 1999 and then danced with Paris Opera Ballet, The Hamburg Ballet, Tanz Theater München, Ballet Mainz and Scapino Ballet Rotterdam. Since 2013, Antonin has focused on developing his own work as a freelance choreographer, with a breakthrough in his cross-genre work Out of the grey by Korzo. Antonin’s work often reveals itself in absurd and dark comic expressions of everyday life and mankind. He has already received several awards and nominations for his playful, idiosyncratic and highly committed choreographic style. His work is regularly shown at various international festivals.
