Spoon Spoon

Do you dare to let yourself fall into somebody’s arms? To jump together and not think about where you might land? To get all your friends together and roll through the living room? Or do you prefer to fall asleep in a cosy hug? It’s all possible in Spoon Spoon. In a world full of mattresses, so there is no need to be careful. Three dancers and a musician are doing their best to find that magical moment, when you feel you’re floating and the whole world disappears. The stage is all set, now it only requires a little bit of bravery….

Spoon Spoon is the second 4+ family dance concert by Josephine van Rheenen, after the succesvol hit Pokon (4+). With playful energy, impressive acrobatics and dreamy music, De Dansers create a performance that is about freedom, safety and bravery. The form: a hypnotical, comical and highly contagious composition of 1000 x falling, lifting, throwing, catching, stumbling, somersaulting… and if we manage, maybe even a little bit of flying.

“The knack of flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.”
– Douglas Adams, Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy
