Helaas, op dit moment zijn er geen voorstellingen beschikbaar.

Wegens een blessure bij Alexandra moeten we deze voorstelling helaas annuleren. Kaarthouders ontvangen z.s.m. bericht.

De drie performers beginnen bij de stereotypes van de vrouw, van waaruit zich een originele voorstelling over rollenpatronen ontvouwt. Leidraad zijn de populaire songs uit de rebetiko, de Griekse blues, die te horen is in de volkscafé’s, op pleinen en straten. ‘Het publiek raakte al snel in de ban. Het ging heel duidelijk over pijn, lijden, het alledaagse, het menselijke’, schreef Tageszeitung.

Charismatic dance about male-female clichés with live sung Greek blues.

In Private Song Bachzetsis - who is also on stage - looks at gender roles in Western society from her Greek background. The melancholic rebetiko is her vehicle. She does that cleverly and convincingly, with a lot of humor and charisma. She unravels not only gender stereotypes, but also cultural ones, such as the typical associations that one has with Greek folk music or certain Hollywood icons. It is no longer just about men and women, but about people and what concerns them.

Private Song is an intimate performance in which the audience sits close to the performers, on stage with the main hall as a backdrop. Gradually the dance changes into a live mini-song concert.

In 2011 Alexandra Bachzetsis made an impressive Julidans debut with, A Piece Danced Alone. ‘Convincing and driven’, the critics said. Just like Private Song, that work was about the stereotyping of women in our society.

Before she founded her own company, the Greek Bachzetsis (who lives and works in Switzerland) danced with renowned groups such as Sasha Waltz and les ballets C de la B. With her own work she is on the rise in Europe. As she explores the boundary between performance, visual arts and dance, her productions cannot only be seen in the theatres, but also in major museums, including the Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum, Tate Modern and the MoMa.
