We Are In Trouble

In collaboration with European Capital of Culture Leeuwarden 2018

World premiere  3 February 2018, 20:30
De Harmonie, Leeuwarden www.harmonie.nl          Teaser

IVGI&GREBEN have always been warmly welcomed abroad. They are sincerely struck by the stark contrast between their experience and the cold reception of strangers into contemporary society and disagree with the opposition of ‘us and them’- after all, it’s about people.

In their new dance production, We Are In Trouble IVGI&GREBEN apply their powerful, energetic and communicative dance language to give shape to the situation of life on the run. We Are In Trouble expresses how it feels to be on the road, to have to say goodbye, to become disconnected and a stranger to others- but also, to explore and learn, enter into new relationships, to hope and to desire. IVGI&GREBEN contemplate our shared humanity and conclude: we are all in trouble.

We Are In Trouble shows a group of eight dancers, men and women, who are constantly in motion. They form a group and seem to be in search of a place. A place to rest, to be safe, maybe to start a new life. A past that is too overwhelming to remember drives them on. They pass by, not connecting to anything except each other.

We Are In Trouble is supported by the Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunsten, Fonds Podiumkunsten, Prins Bernard Cultuurfonds, VSBfonds.
