Inne I Ivan Perez

BECOMING is inspired by the ever-changing world we live in, how we - consciously or not – have an effect on each other. The dancers move with or against the flow, continuously influenced by encounters and experiences. Hypnotic
entanglements take us to infinite places. The physical and emotional choreography of Pérez, is accompanied by the electronic music of Rutger Zuydervelt.

BECOMING inspires us to reflect on who we are and what we can become.

Giorgia Nardin
Minor Place

Minor Place is a temporary community inviting the audience to connect through simple exercises. Giorgia creates an atmosphere of empathy as we, the audience, gradually start to re-imagine how we are with one another.

Minor Place is inspired by the poetry found in the act of looking, listening and movement. It is an invitation act together with softness, look and re-claim our relationships to one another.

Through a series of simple guidelines, the participants are invited to access the performance space: everyone and anyone can join, with the freedom to decide at any time to interrupt or leave the practice.

Inspired by Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body and Primitive Accumulation by Silvia Federici, Minor Place urges to claim a sense of responsibility physically translated, to question the point of view on the codes of fruition of the body.

To do this, Giorgia Nardin proposes to act together, to collectively indulge in poetic anatomy, to re-claim a fluid way of staying in relationship with the other. Minor Place is an invitation to act, a practice of collective exposure.
