Heather Ware & Jakob Koranyi

Two of Europe’s celebrated young performers, dancer/choreographer Heather Ware and cellist Jakob Koranyi, join creative forces for two new productions in the 2016/2017 season.

Battle Abbey glides between euphoria and tragedy, is vulnerable and virtuosic, both fragile and unconstrained. An exhilarating ensemble work with live music and dance.

Reapproaching Bach twists the conventions of a classical concert; “we find places where we are vulnerable and perhaps all too human, and places where we can give ourselves over to the pure beauty of Bach”. An intimate duet between cellist and dancer.

Battle Abbey en Reapproaching Bach are supported by the talent development program of LeineRoebana, the Nieuwe Makers regeling of the Performing Arts Fund NL, Statens Musikverk (Sweden), and the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (Canada).
