Föld by Krisztina de Châtel
'Föld', Hungarian for earth, was created by choreographer Krisztina de Châtel and commissioned by the Holland Festival in 1985. Many considered this production as the highlight of the festival, and since then the piece has become a classic in the Dutch modern dance tradition.
A round, earthen wall forms the setting of Föld. In that circle, the dancers engage in an exhausting battle. They try to clear a way out with enormous physical exertion.
