Club Guy & Roni
Club Guy & Roni is an international dance company, founded in 2002 by Guy Weizman and Roni Haver. The company is located in the city of Groningen, The Netherlands.
Weizman and Haver create adventurous and explosive dance performances linked to contemporary topics and reaching far beyond the genre of ‘dance’. In their quest for innovation they cooperate with artists from other disciplines such as music, theatre, literature, film and visual arts.
Generating new music is a key feature in Club Guy & Roni’s work. That’s why the company works with producer Thijs de Vlieger (NOISIA) and composer Jan-Bas Bollen, as well as musical ensembles AskoSchönberg and Slagwerk Den Haag.
Club Guy & Roni’s performance ‘Alpha Boys’ was nominated for the Dutch Swan Award 2011. More success came with ‘L’Histoire du Soldat’ (winner of the Russian Golden Mask Award 2013) and ‘Midnight Rising’ (winner of the Dutch Swan Award 2013). 2017’s performance ‘Tetris Mon Amour' got great reviews, De Volkskrant (★★★★) being a good example: “Roni Haver creates a dynamic universe as in an addictive computer game.”
On a regular basis the company collaborates with the Groningen-based theatre company NNT (Noord Nederlands Toneel). From 2017 on Guy Weizman is the new artistic director of the NNT, next to his role as artistic leader of Club Guy & Roni. Both companies will continue their intensive collaboration, resulting in mind boggling ‘WTF’ experiences like Carrousel and Salam. In 2018/2019 Club Guy & Roni will be in theatres with the euphoric dance performance ‘Mechanical Ecstasy’.
