Codarts Dance Company presents: Talent on the move BBBRAVO!!!

While half of the Netherlands is demonstrating against the cabinet policy by voting, I am witnessing a demonstration of over thirty pupils of the Codarts Dance Company from Rotterdam. 'Talent on the Move' is a yearly tour programme. A collaboration between the aforementioned dance company and the Holland Dance Festival.

What remains of human contact when we communicate via screens?

WERC & Very Theatre - The Place Where We Meet What remains of human contact when we communicate via screens?

"Ni hao!" An enthusiastic group of people greet the audience. We hesitantly answer 'Hello' back. A live broadcast connects us with the capital of Taiwan. Taipei is about a twelve hour flight away from the Netherlands, and there is about a six hour time difference.

And even more so, I am unable to experience that delightful moment: the lights dim, the mutterings slowly cease, the curtain opens and the magic starts.

Hell is other people

GUTS - No Exit Hell is other people

Welcome to Hell. Where is purgatory? The torture devices? No lake of fire and brimstone, no devils waiting for your arrival. No. A space. A scarcely decorated room. Three armchairs, red, yellow, green. A letter opener and a door that can only be opened from the outside. It raises questions. Questions that, very frustratingly, are not answered straight away.

‘This is a completely new experience for us’
