Ballet show in two parts
Hans van Manen is one of those few choreographers who by combining classical ballet with modern dance and other movement techniques, has succeeded in popularising modern ballet across a wide audience. He is one of the pioneers for those dance artists who assisted him, chiefly in the '60s, in establishing the, today completely accepted, art form manifesting a synthesis of academic and other dance techniques.The piece 5 Tangos is set to the music of Astor Piazzolla. The work, a true audience favourite, flows with fiery energy. Tango, and a little something extra. Trois Gnossiennes is the third and central work in Hans van Manen's Piano Variations cycle from 1980-84. Manen choreographed this sensual duet about resignation, trust and harmony to the magical and melancholy music of Erik Satie. The Dutch artist conceived of the female role in its pas de deux for the world-famous ballerina Mária Aradi, who joined the HET Nationale Ballet as a principal soloist in 1972 and later served as a ballet master with the Amsterdam-based company. Since returning to Hungary, she has continued working as a ballet master with the Hungarian National Ballet for many years. The NDT was turning 30 years old when Jiří Kylián informed Hans van Manen, “You’re going to do the ballet for the anniversary.” Manen replied: “Really? And what should I do?” Kylián replied: “A cake”. This is how the festive parody of five movements built around humour – the irresistibly witty Black Cake – was conceived.
