Tonight, there was dancing in the theatre by seven dancers, four men, three women, of choreographer Conny Janssen’s group.
The show is called “Vuil & Glass”, literally Dirt and Glass. In which the Dirt stands for the waste disposal plant in Alkmaar, where this show originated in 2002. Glass stands for United States composer Philip Glass, to whose music the dancers dance.
Sometimes, you can hear the sound of herring gulls; who were present during the original show at the waste disposal plant in Alkmaar.
Compared to six years ago, all dancers, costumes, and chroreography have changed. The mattresses as attributes for the dancing have not changed. I am not sure whether the kick scooter was already in use in 2002.
Unlike a classical ballet such as Swan Lake, this dance show does not tell a story. Nevertheless, it impressed the audience greatly.
