Directors Andrea Leine & Harijono Roebana.
Andrea Leine is one of the two choreographers of dance company LeineRoebana. Andrea Leine and Harijono Roebana developing since 1989 a private erratic movement language, which both emotions and the expressive power of movement are central. LeineRoebana is nationally and internationally known for its unusual combination of dance and music and its unique movement idiom; won at home and abroad and played in Europe, the United States, Canada, Russia, Africa, Indonesia and Singapore. LeineRoebana does work for both trained and untrained dancers of all ages, both for large venues like performances on location. The human is essential; LeineRoebana want to link intriguing, complex shapes and structures to a lived, personal performance. Andrea Leine and Harijono Roebana are both interested in moving into the area and set the space in motion, both in the choreography and in the folds of the show: the holes in the structure that are not choreographed, but the natural places where the ‘Jenseits’ may appear; the moments of an unmediated encounter between audience and performer. Their dance idiom is based on a new approach to symmetry, rhythm and composition. Dance is LeineRoebana the medium in which its ideas and fantasies – with or without a linguistic articulation – on the world to get us stature, the physicality can put us on the trail of a forgotten reality, and which form more or lesser extent the immediacy and authenticity of feeling and emotion can hats.
