In Hush De Dansers seek solace in dance and music. A hand on your shoulder; a second voice that travels with you wherever you go; a rhythm you can lean into, as if in an embrace.
The band of dancers and musicians from the successful performance Shake Shake Shake (2019) finds each other again, on the border between dance performance and pop concert. Dancers become musicians, musicians become dancers. Sensitive guitar spins drive the performers into each other’s arms. Heaving bodies are imposing the rhythm of the music. Hush is not being told by individual achievement, but by the meticulous attention and dedication that lives between the performers. The musicians and dancers stand by each other, they support each other. Because if you want to be able to carry the world, it helps not to be alone.
In the autumn of 2022, De Dansers worked on a preliminary study entitled Hush: under construction. In the summer of 2023, Hush will perform as a location performance at various festivals. The full-length theater version of Hush will premiere in Utrecht in September, followed by a LIVE theater tour through The Netherlands.
