Wim Wenders used inspiration from Hopper’s work in his film Paris-Texas: Stopping in motion film, and motion in stationary perspectives. A story about ‘time’. Each painting has a story before it stops and appears to go further after the “picture” moment. What happened after that moment? Time seems stretched, his paintings were a resistance to modern alienation.

After the overwhelming success of FADO, which was awarded the Public’s Choice Dance Award in 2014, and the acclaimed Crazy Blues, the International Danstheater presents the new performance Danzón, inspired by the eponymous music and dance style in Cuba.

Dancers of the Internationaal Danstheater take you, along with the Cuban pianist and composer Abel Marcel Calderón and his band, to the fascinating world of various Caribbean cultures. Danzón will premiere in the DeLaMar Theatre in Amsterdam on 7 March. A tour through the Netherlands follows.


Coming up:  Kymani, the story of a drummer (6+) will premiere in Belgium in Cultuurcentrum de Adelberg in Lommel on October 10!

Kymani goes on a quest for his roots. He was adopted when he was a young child, and now he lives far away from his country of birth. He grows up in a class with students from different countries and learns about different cultures and traditions, but nowhere he feels at home. He hears Australian and Asian music, sees Irish and Indonesian dance, but only when he hears the drum, it touches his soul. He wants to be a drummer!

The Dutch premiere is on October 25 in theater de Meervaart in Amsterdam. Would you like to be there? Check the schedule and tickets.

Sunday September 6th we present the new season 2015-2016 in the Doelenzaal in Amsterdam. Pieces of FADO, InsiDe-out and the new performance Danzón will be shown. At 16.00h the program begins, at the end we have a toast to the new season. Entrance is free, but please reserve your seats via or by phone: 020 – 623 9112. We hope to see you then!
