Creation 2020/2021

René is common ground - a rectangular manege, in which two dance acrobats explore freedom within one central theme: the everlasting principle of rebounding.

Both concisely and playfully, René evolves from elemental to acrobatic movement mechanics into depth and back, emphasizing the joy of finding variation and diversity in what could seem to stay the same.

Both performers have their designated and equal places in this tightly woven score which does not allow for any mistakes. Beyond all virtuosity, René reveals the human aspects of what it means to truly collaborate, to share focus, to synchronize, to practice solidarity in togetherness, to strive, to endure, to accomplish and fail never alone but always together; to make something work out, be it skillfully submitting to an impossible system of counts or embracing the race toward the finishing line of a meticulously choreographed movement score.

René premiered on October 9th 2021 with PERPLX festival in Kortrijk, Belgium.
