about the programme
The French choreographer and theatre maker Antonin Rioche exposes the sore spots of life with piercing and personal work. He likes to combine and open up new horizons within art disciplines. This talented artist has been as The Choice of Korzo and Nederlands Dans Theater for 2020.
Glitter is a choreographed composition about love, fame and recognition. It lures us into our childhood in which everything is still possible and dreams have not yet vanished. A melancholic glimpse into lost moments propels the work forward. “The real paradises are the paradise we lost” said Proust. With a hint of humour, the cast embodies intimate memories of dreams that have long been behind us. In Glitter, stardom beckons and puts it in sharp contract with reality. Flirting with tragic burlesque, they take us to what we all recognize: the illusion of greatness that enchants us all.
Due to the extended lockdown until at least February 9, the premiere of Glitter will take place online via a Korzo Livestream on January 29 at 8:00 PM. The performance is preceded (at 7:45 PM) by a unique video interview with Antonin Rioche. A ticket for the livestream costs € 9.
