Typhoon Introdans / Krisztina de Châtel

The monumental dance performance Typhoon (1986) by choreographer Krisztina De Châtel will be revived in the spring of 2025 and danced by the dancers of Introdans. The choreographic urge for order of De Châtel – queen of minimalist dance – is tested in this performance, as it were, in a flying storm.

“I have always been an admirer of Krisztina de Châtel's minimalist work. The clarity in structure, the minimal shifts and the battle with the power of the wind machines are enormously fascinating. Introdans is committed to cherishing and reviving existing repertoire to prevent dance from becoming disposable art and to ensure that a new generation of audiences can become acquainted with these impressive works,” says Roel Voorintholt, artistic director of Introdans.

For the performance Typhoon, Krisztina de Châtel collaborated with visual artist Peter Vermeulen and composer Simeon ten Holt. The central theme in Peter Vermeulen's work is the conversion of energy into moving and sound-producing images. For Typhoon he developed the idea of having the dancers enter into a direct confrontation with the incalculable forces of the wind. He installed three wind machines that can vary in strength from a light breeze to a heavy storm. De Châtel then has her dancers enter into direct confrontation with the wind machines designed by Vermeulen.
