Description

Solo was created in January 1997, but does form the other end of Van Manen’s art of dancing. Made to measure for the junior troupe, it is a sparkling relay of three boys, alternating at breakneck speed, to two parts of Bach’s First Violin Partita. When this work opened, the audience nearly stood on their seats with enthusiasm.

Born on July 11, 1932 Hans van Manen became one of the famous Dutch ballet dancers and choreographers. In 1960 he founded the Nederlands Dans Theater and was its art director from 1961 until 1970. From 1974 until 1987 he worked for the Dutch National Ballet. He was awarded by the Deutschen Tanzpreis in 1993, by the Erasmus Prize in 2000 and in 2004 by the Musikpreis der Stadt Duisburg. His work includes more than 90 choreographies.
