T.R.A.S.H.

  1. For Tracey is about the paradoxes of everyday life;
    relationships between people that are brutally disrupted. Seemingly sweet, but with dark psychological undertones.

    _______________________________________________________________________________________________________
    The film is based on scenes from the performance Disordery Conduct and a collaboration between T.r.a.s.h. and filmmakers Martin Kers (MMXI ) and Erik-Jan Maalderink (VOXL), former LADDS members.

    During the Cinedans Festival 2011 For Tracey won the award in the category 'Camera Rework'.

    QUOTE FROM THE JURY:

    "This film astounded us by its brave portrayal of the unpleasant aspects of relationships, the freshness of the on-screen talent and its punk sensibilities." ---- Cinedans Festival 2011

  2. In between sunken ships four performers are waiting for their crossing. Intrigues and manipulations are happening on a daily basis. Only the own perception is measure. Old, conservative values are under pressure; affective closeness is opposed to clinic distance.

    T.r.a.s.h. is renowned for its uncompromising dance performances, constantly seeking the boundaries with amazing dedication. At a crossroads of artistic disciplines – a combination of dance, performance and (live) music - for the past ten years the company has been challenging the traditional norms of theatre and dance.

    In strongly styled images this dance theatre performance puts down reality as a subjective construction. In colorfull and spherical spaces the performers act out contrasting actions on each other: actions of oppression and depression, cruelty and show of force. It's a performace about judgement and the desire for finding out the truth. Oppressed emotions intrude and explode in a psychologically charged show post-punk style.

  3. True stories merge with an illusionary world, in which women can take on every kind of identity to survive. The spectator observes them closely.

    Irina is a collaboration between T.r.a.s.h. and filmmakers Martin Kers (MMXI) & Erik-Jan Maalderink (VOXL).

    Irina was financially supported by Performing Art Fund NL, Province of North Brabant & City of Tilburg

    Première NL | Saturday 2 March | CINEDANS 2013 | EYE Film Institute | Amsterdam.

    PRESS:

    " Eigenlijk sluit de Nederlandse inzending Irina van T.R.A.S.H. wonderwel aan bij de Canadese expressionistische trend van façades omver werpen en onomwonden drijfveren tonen. Meisjes die de draak steken met meisjes: soms is Irina wreed, soms toont het ook de overgave waarmee alleen jonge vrouwen kunnen lijden. Anorexia staat er ergens in de kantlijn van deze film geschreven. Het werk van regisseurs Kers, Maalderink en choreograaf Van Issum is een verademing tijdens een shorts-programma". ------ Fransien van der Putt (Cultuurpers).

  5. Auf Wiedersehen zoomt in op de intieme ogenblikken na het vaarwel, op de situaties waarin het lichaam verkrampt en naar adem snakt. Afscheid nemen is een beetje sterven. De vier danseressen combineren fysieke elegantie met een energieke bewegingstaal.

    T.r.a.s.h. staat bekend om zijn compromisloze voorstellingen waarin voortdurend grenzen worden opzocht. Op het kruispunt van disciplines breekt het met de traditionele normen van theater en dans.

    DAAU (Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung) maakt sinds 1992 furore met een eigenzinnige mix van folk, punk en klassiek. Voor Auf Wiedersehen verzorgen ze een live soundtrack. Ze herwerken een aantal van hun composities tot een actuele remix.

    Gecreëerd met & Uitgevoerd door: Tegest Pecht-Guido, Lucie Petrušová, Helena Araújo, Eleni Ploumi
