A movement piece by Floor van Leeuwen

Sixteen performers spend two hours moving towards the back wall of a theatre. With a light step, but also with determination. Some are young, others quite a bit older. Others still, somewhere in between. Each performer runs, steps and jumps at his or her own pace, but above all in unison with the others. In a collective rhythm, as a single billowing body. Along the way, a polyphonic conversation between man and wall unspools. We, the audience, see the wall and the backs of the performers. We hear the rhythm of their feet. We feel the energy of the group. Sometimes wild, sometimes calm, but always with the same sense of determination.

Introduction Muur

  • “Muur heeft dezelfde hypnotiserende kracht die minimal music kan hebben maar voegt daar een fysiek element aan toe. En ondanks alle individuele verschillen keken we naar één pulserend lichaam, dat met het lichtvoetig bewegen op de dansvloer zijn eigen muziek voortbracht.” – Theaterkrant ★★★
