The Ailey School New York & Codarts Rotterdam
“Talent On The Move 2020: Mixed Bill”
Traditionally, Theater de Veste hosts the premiere of Talent On The Move, the exciting programme for new up-and-coming dance talent that Holland Dance Festival and Codarts Rotterdam have been jointly presenting since 2009. For the next edition, which takes place during the seventeenth Holland Dance Festival, the two organisations have devised a very special ‘festival surprise’, to which Codarts – the hotspot for contemporary dance in the Netherlands – has invited the leading Ailey School from New York, affiliated with the world-renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Company. Exclusively for Theater de Veste, the two top international dance institutes present a programme in which the young dance talents from New York and Rotterdam perfom together.
The programme offers a ‘tasting’ of various short choreographies, made especially for the dancers on both sides of the ocean and exclusively composed for these two performances in the Holland Dance Festival. Both performances include an introduction and a ‘meet & greet’ with the dancers. Prior to the performances in Delft, Holland Dance Festival, in collaboration with Codarts Rotterdam, organises an intensive visitor programme for the New York guests, with special meetings with representatives of Dutch dance, master classes, workshops and performance visits during the Holland Dance Festival.
