With Confetti, Introdans presents a colorful palette of dance: from urban to classical. Featuring cool moves, body-painted dancers, powerful music and audience favorites by Hans van Manen.

All season long, this company is celebrating a golden party because Introdans is turning 50. 
Two classical choreographies by the Netherlands' most famous choreographer Hans van Manen, a dazzling ballet by Karole Armitage, and new work by streetwise talent Ruben Chi will leave you on the edge of your seat.

Street style funk star Ruben Chi is an emerging talent with a dance language all his own. For Confetti, he was inspired by the works of grandmaster Hans van Manen. Ruben Chi seduces the dancers into cool moves with cool music.

Former punk ballerina Karole Armitage choreographed Rave after the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York. It is a work that radiates survival and creative drive. She combines different dance techniques: voguing, capoeira, wushu (Chinese martial art) and ballet technique. The 24 body-painted dancers rage across the stage in a spectacular color bombardment. Karole Armitage is known for her video clips for Michael Jackson and Madonna, including the hit Vogue.

Without a doubt, Polish Pieces is one of Hans van Manen's most vibrant and colorful works. To the powerful music of Górecki, the maestro has twelve dancers in brightly colored tunics storm the stage in ever-changing combinations and in fantastically clear lines. The group segments are tight, energetic and pulsating; in the duets, the tension is increased even further.

Although he didn't think it that extreme in advance, Keso Dekker's costumes – green at the front, red at the back – play an important role in Hans van Manen's In the Future. They emphasize the sublime play of colors and bodies alongside stimulating, jazzy music by David Byrne. Red and green ensembles magically intertwine, green rows ingeniously mix with red, and with one simple jump or turn the overall picture changes again. An absolute crowd favorite for years!
