Dance duets on location, performed on a floor measuring 3,5 x 3,5 meters and the audience surrounding the floor on three sides.
Impinging on the spectator’s space, a confrontation between two dancers unfolds. Over the course of ten minutes, dance is being explored. What’s shown can be experienced a second time around during a subsequent workshop.
Tailored for different age groups, de Stilte has a number of duets created by Jack Timmermans, Gertien Bergstra and Femke Somerwil.
‘With clearly defined boundaries yet respecting a child’s personal baggage, pupils were given space to truly be present. A real gift to experience for me as a teacher. By letting the children dance themselves, the performance was brought even more to life. A very good combination.’ – Marieke, teacher at primary school de Dromenvanger
