This spring of 2021 the OCN ensemble has been rehearsing several new pieces that will be shown in the ways that are possible under the current conditions.

A new piece has been created by Helge Letonja: “Songs of Love and Bones“. This new piece was live streamed with “Préludes” via Zoom in march 2021. Meanwhile, choreographers Anila Mazhari and Jessica van Rüschen have created their double bill dance evening LIKE FICTION, which will premiere April 16 2021 on Dringeblieben.de

When the pressing beats of chaos and uncertainty take over the smooth humming of everyday life, does it reveal the agitation that has been existing underneath the surface of stable normality? With common liberties limited from the call for confinement, isolation, separation, they now glisten, in retrospect, as privileges.  More of the individual comes to light, and the yearning for expression to share and connect swells as new potential and energy for the eventual renaissance of normal living.  We can dare to fall into the momentum of change knowing that we will always be on the shoulders of, and be part of, something greater than us alone.  What we can only do, is what we have been doing for centuries – just dance with the rhythms, tempi, harmonies and discords that perpetuate the movement of life.

This video was sparked by our composer for On the Shoulders of Giants, Simon Goff, when he came across a BBC article about the hidden portrait behind a Degas painting titled “Portrait of a Woman.” It makes us all ponder about the freshness of the unseen that is covered by what we are familiar with.
