Holding Space

“What is the saddest thing we do to our bodies in our contemporary culture? Maybe the fact that we hardly move.

We fence our bodies in, and miss the joy of moving and cheering freely. Think how easily we get to 9 seated hours a day. How to deal with stress, pressure and adrenaline overload? Is it compensation? Fitness to the extreme and to exhaustion? And do we keep track of the result by measuring and metering? Are we lived or are we able to hold space? For me? For you?

Holding space is a performance where five dancers fight body boredom and consider the physical challenge of inaction.

DANSLAB#1 press PLAY

DANSLAB is a playground for movers who love creating and collaborating
During 12 weeks we worked together towards the performance Press Play. We were 10 people, playing and experimenting with stories and feelings that come from meeting the other (body). Press Play is a performance where dance meets theater and where fun, power and guts are taking the lead!
