Unique and intimate mix of two renowned choreographers
They are utterly different, wise to the world, and both are famous across the globe. This Noorderzon they shall meet in an irresistible, intimate combined concert and dance performance. Last year, the Irish Colin Dunne visited Noorderzon with his blindingly beautiful solo dance performance Concert. In it, he wrested himself free of age-old folk dance traditions in iconic fashion. In Session, he will be collaborating with Flemish-Moroccan Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui – one of the world's most original and productive choreographers, who performed at Noorderzon a decade ago – in order to embark on a voyage of discovery that will lead them to what connects them. Session seeks the boundaries between motion and music, between looking and listening. The performance whisks its way from elegant to absurd, aided by the work of composer Michael Gallen and musician Soumik Datta: a four-part soundscape that brings together melodic-eccentric percussive dance and lavishly embellished Irish song.

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Colin Dunne: a sophisticated mix of two dissimilar dance greats
