Dance review: Diver Festival

The current edition of Diver Festival started on high note with German choreographer Raimund Hoghe’s L’Apres Midi, which together with two evenings by French choreographer David Wampach is the kind of international, cutting-edge dance so coveted by local audiences.

During the first week of the festival, most of the attention was focused on Hoghe’s L’Apres Midi and the exemplary execution by Emmanuel Eggermont, a longtime collaborator of Hoghe’s. It has taken the physically challenged Hoghe years to gain recognition, and works like L’Apres Midi and Swan Lake tilted the scales in his favor.
