AN ODE TO INDIVIDUALITY
Rust is a co-productions of plan d- and De Dansers
Fortunately not everyone is normal.
Fortunately there are strange and unusual people.
Fortunately sometimes something completely unexpected can happen.
A girl falls through a chute straight into a peculiar world. This is the place where things end up that normal people no longer need. Old plastic, discarded furniture, rusty devices. And also a few maladjusted people. Dive into their surrealistic world, full of strange morning rituals, impossible dance duets, waltzing garbage bags and melancholic songs.
RUST is a performance about the beauty of the abnormal. The three artistic directors of De Dansers and plan d- join forces on stage. They are dancers, singers, acrobats and inventors. A performance to amaze you, to make you laugh and to inspire you to behave out of the ordinary.
“Rust walks the line between a melancholy love story and roughhousing with your friends, and the result is beautiful. Just like the intimate interplay between dance and music by the Utrecht collective De Dansers.” ★★★★ – newspaper De Volkskrant
“Movement, whether alone or together, and entering into relationships without moral judgement about one another is liberating; that is the message one could take away from the performance. Not every six-year-old would interpret or formulate it that way, but there’s nothing wrong with that. They’ll still sense the creativity and the enjoyment the characters experience in movement.” – Theaterkrant
