We are Monuments

‘Wij zijn Monumenten’

Gevormd door onze eigenaardigheden, gedeelde geschiedenis, verbeelding en mysteries.

 

Gedurende de eerste maanden van de Covid-19 pandemie en de daarop volgende lockdown, flitsten hartverscheurende beelden van eenzame, geisoleerde ouderen dagelijks over onze schermen. Deze beelden en de moeizame strijd waren de inspiratiebron voor een choreografie voor drie dansers van verschillende generaties. Dit gaf het verlangen om deze tijd en ruimte die we met elkaar beleven te onderzoeken en de noodzaak hiermee te spelen.

 

‘We are Monuments’

Formed by our singularities, shared history, imagination and mysteries.

 

During the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing lockdown, heart-wrenching images of lonely, isolated seniors flashed across our screens daily. These images and the precarious struggle inspired the creation of a choreography for three dancers from different generations. It brought about the desire to explore this space and time we inhabit together and the need to play with it.

 

Eight performances (± 25 min) are scheduled to take place, indoors at Cloud/Danslab & Theater De Nieuwe Regentes as well as outdoors with a modified staging in the garden of Huis van het Boek, and a more experimental version in the public space on the Prins Hendrikplein.

Christie was born in New York, and has danced professionally for Nederlands Dance Theatre, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and Complexions, as well as in the role of ‘Anybodys’ in West Side Story the musical.
