At the Renaissance courts, no festivity was complete without dancing, and the demand for dance music for ball and stage was enormous. Anyone who imagines the dances of the time to be rather solemn, measured and highly stylized will be surprised by the variety of forms that Hubert Hazebroucq's small but extremely refined troupe conjures up on stage. The dancer, choreographer and dance researcher is not considered to be a luminary in this field for nothing. Aristocratically refined, spectacularly virtuosic, sometimes also exuberantly foolish: He lets the carousel of musical motifs rotate to the provocative woodwind sound, typical of the time. He and his band would have been valued their weight in gold back then. They enjoy a legendary reputation among Renaissance fans.
