We Are In Trouble

January 5, 2018

New work of IVGI&GREBEN on show in the Netherlands
Choreographers Uri Ivgi and Johan Greben have started working on the creation of their new piece We Are In Trouble. It will premiere on February 3 in De Harmonie in Leeuwarden (NL) as part of the programme Strangers on Stage in coproduction with Leeuwarden 2018: European Capital of Culture. This gives the Dutch audience finally the change to get acquainted with the poetic and at the same time confronting work of the internationally orientated choreographers duo IVGI&GREBEN.

Already during their individual dance careers with the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company and the Dutch National Ballet, the Israeli Uri Ivgi and the Dutch Johan Greben each started a promising career as choreographer. They have been working together successfully for 15 years now and their highly regarded work can be seen at leading companies all over the world.

Powerful We Are In Trouble is about shared humanity
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. Johan and Uri know how it is to receive a warm welcome when they work abroad and the stronger they feel the cool reception of foreigners in the Netherlands. They have an aversion to the gap which exists between ‘we’ and ‘them’.

IVGI&GREBEN want to look behind this we-versus-them attitude, do a wordless appeal to the empathy of the audience and remind us all of our shared humanity.
