Exhausting Space

Score for a dance piece by Iván Pérez

The third collaboration with Spanish/Dutch choreographer Iván Pérez, for Korzo Productions. 'Exhausting Space' is a reworking of 'Attention, the doors are closing!' (for Ballet Moscow). It will premiere at the Cadance Festival in The Hague, February 2015.

Iván Pérez is well known for his poetic, clear dance style, which is stripped down to its bare essentials. He now employs this style to interpret the way we relate to each other in our complex world. Our world, where everything is connected, but boundaries can easily be transgressed. Presented as an adaptation of his previous work 'Attention, the doors are closing!' created in Moscow, three dancers use every corner of the theatre surrounded by the audience. Tirelessly and affectionately, they exhaust perspectives of personal space and use their bodies in search for unity. Even though the boundary that separates intimacy from intimidation is fragile, the dancers push the limits anyway. Tenderly they discover new possibilities for human connectedness.

'Exhausting Space' premiered at the CaDance Festival, Korzo, The Hague, 12/13/14 February. It'll go on a Dutch tour in 2016.
