Finally a sign of life reflects the days where the sun did not rise inside us. We did not hear the birds anymore. It was so dark that the mornings felt the same as the evenings. Even on sunny days, it was dark. The light never came home, and everything always remained the same. We were not grounded, we were floating. Our soul had to disconnect from our body, in order to carry on. We were waiting for something to happen, or someone to fall. An open jail surrounded by a deafening silence, filled with patience. The darkness was everywhere. Inside of me, and inside of you. We were living in the dark, and the only light we had was the light inside us. It is always darkest before the dawn. We know that we can draw a map to the stars in the death of night. Dancing our hopelessness away. The light came back again. A rebirth, translating a truly intimate story. It is a journey to find the courage to embrace moments of darkness and pain. The ability to meet discomfort, in order to recognize a hidden gift underneath. An offering of celebration, awakening, and light, helping us to connect to our body and nourish our love for dance. Dancing within the duality forever, again, and again.

Change the game

Wat als onze maatschappij een gigantischschaakspel was, met een koning, rebellerende pionnen en dames diemigreren van een ander bordspel, bedreigd met uitzetting? Een multidisciplinair theaterstuk dat de zwarte en witte paden volgt van een politieke thriller.


Korzo Zaal

Hold Your Horses

Wat gaat er verloren wanneer aanraking uit het dagelijks leven verdwijnt? Een dansconcert over de kracht en de tederheid daarvan, maar ook over de onmacht en de tragiek.
