Arno Schuitemaker (NL): While We Strive

Three dancers move incessantly in an ongoing development, alternating between exuberance and serenity. With an invigorating sense for rhythm, WHILE WE STRIVE revolves the relationship of movement with sound and redefines feelings of space, creating an interchangeability of visual and aural perception: seeing mutates into hearing and hearing into seeing.

Arno Schuitemaker found inspiration in neuroscience and contemporary philosophy. In close collaboration with composer Massimo Cervini and lighting designer Ellen Knops he created a powerful blend of movement, sound and light. As they intermingle, they conceive a seductive, resilient and funky trip for the senses.
