Read: [contra – verse – us]
Contr (a / o) vers (e / u) s (2019) is the metamorphosis of a character who is on a journey. One that is radical, intense, yet hopeful and tender. The character remembers, that when she’s in the shadows, there must be light.
In this piece for dance- theatre, topics of freedom, identity, and belief are challenged through instinctive movement and behaviour. The delicate towers of identity that make up an individual, exist in an equilibrium between emancipation and incarceration, between the painting of the individual and the uniform. We risk the danger of piling too high, whilst dancing atop these swaying ivory towers. This performance is a transformation from delicate to dangerous.
“An extraordinary performance about the internal journey of a searching soul. Lore and Adam are a young creator duo who do not choose the easy theatrical path, but challenge you as an audience and bring you to the edge of your seat through their consistently complex artistic choices.” – Gregory | curator Jonge Harten
