"In this liberating dance performance everything falls into place." - Alexander Hiskemuller, Trouw
Tour schedule 2019: arnoschuitemaker.com/work/if-you-could-see-me-now
Seemingly casual, If You Could See Me Now appeals for another look, to look again, setting a chilled-out club dance into one dizzying wave-like motion.
Three performers progress continuously. Vibes accumulate and electrify. At maximal exertion and sweaty physicality, their movement flow audaciously reinvents itself as luminous and versatile impressions. The performance space dilates, dissolves and shifts. Time gets chopped up then reshapes.
From ecstasy to turmoil, from build-up to its dismantling, If You Could See Me Now challenges expectations, shakes them up, grinds them to a halt. It finds a tipping point. Reconnecting in this interspace, it makes room for something new, a liberation, to appear.
