"Zalongo” exposes the personal stories of five individuals from all around the world and from different eras in time. Through the contemplation of their actions, as in one sequence of living pictures or moving paintings, Danae & Dionysios create mesmerizing and challenging images of the gender imbalance in spirituality and religion. Illustrating the place of women in their journey to achieve the connection with what we call God, it explores as well alternative paths through the connection with nature.
This production is made possible by the Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition (RIDCC). These choreographers won the XL production award prize (100.000 euro) for their piece Uncia at the first edition of RIDCC in 2018. “The jury was fascinated by the original and brave choice to stick to a very simple starting point, and work that out until it becomes an overwhelming experience to watch. The piece felt complete and was a composition.”
The aim of RIDCC is to stimulate and offer opportunities to choreographers from all over the world. The second edition of RIDCC will be hosted by Theater Rotterdam en will take place from 27-29 June 2019. More info & tickets here.
