Interval

Interval

Dance and architecture meet in this unique performance, in collaboration with interdisciplinary artist Gosse de Kort.

Premiere: October 15th & 16th 2021, Korzo Theater Den Haag, NL

The movement language of choreographer Amos Ben-Tal and the dancers of OFFprojects interact with a mesmerizing kinetic installation by Gosse de Kort, an acclaimed Dutch interdisciplinary artist coming with a background in architecture.
In Interval the four dancers have to navigate their relationships and intuitions in a constantly transforming architectonic landscape. The performers and the space fluctuate between symbiosis and confrontation, order and chaos.
How do we balance our desire for freedom of movement and our need for empathy and solidarity?

Interval is an abstract work of movement and architecture, triggering a strong embodied experience for the viewer. The powerful interaction between the dancers and the installation unleashes poetic metaphors that carry a subjective, emotional layeredness in the piece.

Before every performance of Interval there will be an introduction talk with Katija Truijen about the relationship between dance and architecture. Check the details on the website of the theater you want to visit.
