Opening Night All Stars: 14 October 2018 Nieuwe Luxor Theater, Rotterdam
For this production Daan received a Musical Award: Best Choreography.
“… the choreographies of Daan Wijnands, football to dance form, are masterful.” (NRC – Elisabeth Oosterling)
“The masterpiece, however, comes from Daan Wijnands, the choreographer, what he does with the players is of a unprecedented beauty, daring and style.” (Dagblad van het Noorden – Jacques D’Ancona)
“… the choreography of Daan Wijnands and Thomas Rupert’s simple but effective set design are other plus points.”
“All Stars, the musical starts spectacularly with a great dance of the entire ensemble behind a half-open screen, and at the end a football match is beautifully represented as a classical ballet, then fantasy and theatricality get a chance …” (Volkskrant) – Hein Janssen)
“But fortunately there are both the beautiful and hilarious choreographies by Daan Wijnands.” (Telegraph – Esther Kleuver)
“The choreographies of Daan Wijnands also stand out, as in De Marathon the musical, he is able to present energetic dances with fairly simple, everyday movements, which makes the warm-up for football a stirring piece with lots of footsteps that almost resembles tap dance” (Theaterkrant – Sanne Thierens)
“…the choreography/staging by the talented Daan Wijnands is a joy to watch. Fun, and perfectly in style with the theme of the show.” (Broadwayworld.com)
