Duo Solitas / Solitas Duo

Duo Solitas / Solitas Duo

Two short duets for dancer and opera singer.
For the second edition of the Distinguished Dreams project, The Dutch Dance Festival and Opera Zuid asked three choreographers and three classically trained singers to make and perform together two short works. As one of the selected choreographers Amos worked with bass baritone Sam Eggenhuizen.

The resulting diptych Duo Solitas / Solitas Duo is inspired by the music of early French composer Pérotin and explores different aspects of the dynamics of solitude and togetherness.

Première: October 2nd, 2015, Dutch Dance Festival, Maastricht
