De Voorlopers / The Forerunners

 

World première 24 October 2019 / 20.00 hrs / Internationaal Theater, Amsterdam / www.ita. nl

Internationally renowned choreographers IVGI&GREBEN celebrate idealism in their new work.

After having a successful tour with their last piece and Dutch debut We Are In Trouble, IVGI&GREBEN present their new work De Voorlopers / The Forerunnerson October 24th at Internationaal Theater, Amsterdam.

Rooted in idealism De Voorlopers / The Forerunners depicts ways to share space and mindful attempts to live together. It celebrates the liberating possibilities and positive alternatives in life and art in times when negativism and fear seem to dominate.

As first arrivals on a far away planet, we witness five individuals crossing paths. It is an empty space, nothing is there. What will they do? How will they live and relate to each other? They could start entirely anew, following their desires and dreams – creating and manipulating, trial and error. The area they occupy reveals itself as a test zone for the eyes of the audience. Their efforts to establish a community result in constantly shifting relations amongst themselves and between themselves and their surroundings.

With their detailed and powerful movement style IVGI&GREBEN create a poetic and turbulent show with a keen emotional appeal.
