In troubled times it feels reassuring to be able to say that we have solid ground under our feet. When you lose that ground from under your feet, the self-image gets out of balance. In TRANSMUTE, familiar soil suddenly turns into quicksand and we slowly sink into an unknown world.
Is a person an authentic human being? Are you truly free to make your own choices? Or do environment, time and space determine who you are? What you choose? Are you you? Or are you subject to the dreams of others?
In this new performance by Sandman, choreographer Sabine Molenaar and her four wonderful dancers deconstruct the reality we experience. Sabine peels off the layers and shows them. She adds her dream universe as an extra truth. Time, space and role seem interchangeable. Between dream and quicksand even authenticity seems fluid.
