Heartbeat (10+)

A beautiful synthesis of dance, music, and spoken word

Just imagine…
Dynamic, modern dance and a classical orchestra…
How can you bring these worlds together?

Heartbeat is an animated dance concert in which the SALLY ensemble and the musicians of the South Netherlands Philharmonic, guide a young man and the audience in the search for their own passion – their heartbeat – through dance and music.

The audience follows the story of a young man who has no heartbeat. Set in motion by dance and music he takes a journey of self-discovery, that finally leads him to accepting and celebrating his newly discovered heartbeat. Dance and music are in perfect equilibrium on the stage. This ensures that the audience experiences dynamic dance and spoken word as well as the beautiful concert programme of a symphony orchestra. The repertoire includes music by Bach and Beethoven, as well as Vanessa Lann’s post-minimalist music.
