A film about Toer van Schayk, also known as the best silent dance.
On Saturday September 29, the documentary TOER by Barbara Makkinga premiered at the 32nd Netherlands Film Festival in the presence of Toer van Schayk and the Dutch National Ballet. TOER portrays dancer, sculptor, designer and choreographer Toer van Schayk. As a resident choreographer, the 76-year-old Amsterdammer Van Schayk was able to give the Dutch National Ballet international allure with his remarkable and idiosyncratic combination of classical and modern dance styles with plastic features and strong social themes.
