I recently had the privilege of attending a rehearsal of the group OFFprojects who will be taking part in the CaDance Festival and was completely blown away by the way in which the piece awakened my senses and curiosity. Following the rehearsal, the dancers and choreographers were kind enough to talk to the attendees about the upcoming performance.
Located in the heart of The Hague’s cultural center, the CaDance Festival, a festival for modern contemporary dance, proposes a variety of premiers and special festival projects from already known, as well as upcoming, choreographers. The festival which starts on January 30th will have as its closing act, on February 13th and 14th, a particularly intriguing performance: Might by choreographer/musician Amos Ben-Tal and his group OFFprojects. The piece will be performed at the Theater aan het Spui in the center of The Hague.
Seven exceptional dancers from different nationalities will capture your attention as they move and intermingle through a maze of walls, constantly changing the space which is visually accessible to the audience. The experience for each spectator therefore proves to be uniquely different as the dancers appear and disappear, exhibiting different relationships and non-verbal dialogues. The performance is a sensual trip that explores notions of individuality and one’s personal space, thus bringing each individual face-to-face with pertinent questions about perspective and intimacy.
