By Dani Brown and Marta Navaridas

In their acclaimed production, upcoming choreographers Dani Brown and Marta Navaridas, members of the international collective FINGERSIX, have come together to create an evening of suspense. Inspired by the work of contemporary filmmaker David Lynch, they have set out to translate suspense-mechanisms from cinema to stage. Running on the speculation that an inherent element of suspense is curiosity for the unknown, the two directors have fine-tuned various performative elements to keep the audience alert and guessing at every turn. Flash-backs, shadows, visions, confessions, and a tinge of sadistic irony – employed to weave an intriguing atmosphere of suspense, where the line between theatre and reality is simultaneously emphasized and blurred.

...a promising debut for Dani Brown and Marta Navaridas and their international collective FINGERSIX...
...in the imagination of the audience images are triggered, reminding us of intricate tracking-shots in psycho-thrillers...
...the main source of suspense derives from the two choreographers ability of detailed observation, their precision in timing, shifting eroticism into violence, euphoria into horror, and superiority into helplessness...
