Introdans: Absolute America

Absolute America features four American dance creators, composers and designers, each with a completely individual style, from punk to acrobatically muscled. The choreographers are Karole Armitage with the early work GoGo Ballerina (1988)  performed in the Netherlands for the first time, two of the most famous figureheads of American modern dance Jennifer Muller and Lucinda Childs, and Robert Battle, director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre in New York. The music comes from great names such as Jimi Hendrix and Philip Glass and the stage sets from artists such as Jeff Koons and Sol LeWitt.
