EN – Tonight the traditional large-scale annual event ‘Gouda by Candlelight’ cannot take place – due to the current coronavirus covid-19 measures. To experience Gouda by Candlelight 2021 at home, here a teaser of the film made last year – with a link to that full film ( Kaarsjesavond Candle Night Gouda | 20201211 ) in the end screen.

The people of Gouda in Holland burn candles at the traditional december candle night ‘Kaarsjesavond’ all over the historic town center, where Adrie Vergeer’s Gouda street organs ‘Pansfluiter’ (Pan whistler) and ‘Het Zonnetje’ (Little Sun) play, and the kids of Music school Gouda. When the candles in the giant tree on the central market square are lit, the Carillon is played by Boudewijn Zwart, and Gouda songs (Als de kaarsjes branden… Gouda stad van …) by Desiree Coumans with John de Heij (guitar) and Nils Davidse (piano) – sound on that freezing cold (-7°C / 19°F) Friday night December 16, 2008 in front of a massive crowd at the town hall in the city center of Gouda , Holland. Mensen in Gouda, bedankt!

Danse 2000 ~ One Minute of Dance a Day


Danse 2000 ~ One Minute of Dance a Day

Dancing July 5th, starting 11h11 – all together via internet with ZOOM for the 2000th daily dance with the french performance artist Nadia Vadori-Gauthier ( @uneminutededanseparjour #oneminuteofdanceaday ) as part of Nadia’s project ‘One Minute of Dance a Day’ .
Following the Charlie Hebdo attack on January 7, 2015 Nadia Vadori-Gauthier established her project ‘Une minute de danse par jour’ and has been dancing daily ever since january 14, 2015 for a minute or a little more. A daily act of poetic resistance, involving dance and video.
For her 2000th dance she organised this extraordinary event ‘2000 danses pour la danse 2000’ together with Chaillot – Théâtre national de la Danse.

Nadia’s Motto 

…as Nietzsche once said…

« A day without dancing is a day wasted »

Or, more exactly :
“And lost be the day to us in which a measure hath not been danced. And false be every truth which hath not had laughter along with it!” From: Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche in “Thus Spake Zarathustra”.

Nadia’s 2000st dance film

Nadia’s 2000st dance film was publised today July 6 ( 20200706 ) at instagram : @oneminuteofdanceaday | facebook : Une minute de danse par jour @uneminutededanseparjour | and Nadia’s web site : uneminutededanseparjour.com .
