"It is actually just one movement, but it is fantastic." - de Volkskrant, Mirjam van der Linden
Tour schedule 2019: arnoschuitemaker.com
I will wait for you develops from beginning to end in one seamless flow, ever-changing as it goes on – and on. Together, separate, yet continuously connected, three performers surrender themselves to their circular movements. The twilight of darkness and dim lights evokes initially only the vague contours of their bodies.
Delaying gratification, the meticulous buildup engages the performers and the audience in a perpetual becoming. It makes all logical sense of time evaporate. Escalating in intensity, slowly but surely, I will wait for you grows into a deeply visceral experience, a trance that lingers long after the performance is over.
