After Hans van Manen Variations, Dutch National Ballet presents another jewel from Hans van Manen’s treasury: In and Out. A choreography with twelve dancers from the Junior Company and three castes promises an interesting evening.
The premiere of In and Out can be viewed for free on this page of our website on Thursday 25 March at 5:30 PM. The show will remain available for a month, so from March 25th to April 25th, choose the perfect time to watch the stream from your home theater! There will also be a support act, live on our Instagram, with Ernst Meisner and the Junior Company.
The support act starts live on Instagram at 17:00, with everyone’s favorite online ballet teacher Ernst Meisner as host. Ernst will first give the Junior Company a ballet class where you can watch. Then you can ask Ernst and the dancers all your questions, so prepare yourself! The premiere of In and Out will then start at 5:30 PM and will remain available until April 25. This does not apply to the support act.
MASTER OF LIMITS
Hans van Manen is known as the master of limits. Figuratively, because there is no unnecessary decoration and decoration; dance in its purest form is his trademark. Less is more his motto. But he is also literally the master of limits: Van Manen likes to impose restrictions on himself. In In and out he does this in the spatial sense with the set of three cabinets, in which twelve dancers continuously disappear and reappear. One moment they are all in a cupboard, the next moment they hang, crawl and climb over the three cupboards, and then they storm across the stage. Initially the atmosphere is playful, light and sexy, but when Nina Hagen takes over from Laurie Anderson in the music, the atmosphere becomes aggressive and toxic.
