In September we will bring out the new performance/installation Box, in collaboration with performer Katerina Dietzova and visual artist Vladimir Slavov
Box is a location project which confronts us with the unpredictability of our perception. In this dance duo the performers bring the audience to a journey beyond the borders of gravity, reaching unexpected dimensions.
Box is a coproduction between Stichting Broccoli and ADM Amsterdam.
Financially supported by the Performing Arts Fund NL.
The first pilot will be presented during TIJD Festival at ADM in Amsterdam:
21 and 22 September 2012, ADM, Amsterdam (NL)
