Alida Dors succeeds in bridging the gap to the audience and between dance idioms. At the same time, she keeps on searching for the unknown. Last year, she won the Maastricht Dutch Dance Festival Award, and now the Dutch Dance Festival is presenting the premiere of the final part of the triptych Coffee and Cigarettes. In it, she investigates the everyday life of our times: boredom, social pressure, the urge for adventure and the desire to escape commitments. In Dors’ headstrong hiphop language, three women expose the complexity of the woman in the year 2013. Accompanied by a cellist, they put up explosive resistance and reflect with caution.
Coffee and Cigarettes #3 will be preformed three times at the festival. On Saturday the 5th of October on 11.15 hour (try out) and on 16.15 hour (premiere)and on Sunday the 6th of October on 11.15 hour
