Touching the soul

Scapino Ballet

with magic, richness

Rotterdam

and beauty

Scapino Ballet Rotterdam wants its performances to touch the soul, to show people the magic,

richness and beauty of dance. The company is searching for authenticity, something to believe

in. Scapino Ballet Rotterdam produces dance that is right on the cutting edge. Exciting dance

by inspired artists and virtuoso dancers with something to say.

Scapino Ballet Rotterdam is one of the trendsetters in Dutch modern dance, presenting unique

repertoire by artistic director Ed Wubbe, resident guest choreographers Marco Goecke and

Georg Reischl and young, talented dance makers.

Ed Wubbe: ‘You can feel the inspirational chemistry. We all do very different things, but together

we form a solid base on which the company can build. We’ve invested a lot in people over the

last few years and now we’re reaping the benefits. We have found ourselves, everything is coming

together as it should.’

International

Since it was founded in 1945, Scapino has played an important role in the development of

modern dance. Apart from appearances in the Netherlands, the company performs at countless

international festivals and on foreign stages in Europe and countries including Israel, South-

Africa, Indonesia and Brazil. One of the foremost qualities of the present Scapino company is

the much-acclaimed international dancers’ group. The 21 Scapino dancers are praised for their

achievements, technical competency and feisty characters. They originate from all corners of the

world, from England to China and from Australia to Brazil. This year, Scapino will be returning to

America with The Green and De Bruiden/The Brides by Ed Wubbe, and Der Rest ist schweigen/The

Rest is silence and Äffi by Marco Goecke. Performances in New York and Portland (Oregon) have

also been planned.
