Guy Corneille and Josephine van Rheenen of De Dansers and Jochum Veenstra and Roos Visser of De Theatertroep join forces in MOT. Four disciplines – dance, scenography, theatre and live music – together tell the story of an escape from a nightmare. Can you learn to love fear? There is a monster to dance with and a comforting ghost song. There are life-size dolls and striking bodies. There is an uneasy struggle with the lack of language. MOT is a comfort for restless audiences and anxious viewers.
“Staring at a place on the wall.
The breath catches.
Do not move.
Do not move, says the head.”
For this project, theater makers from the Utrecht dance company De Dansers and the Amsterdam theater collective De Theatertroep are working together. They had a residency for two weeks in Theater Kikker and now present the result. Get a peek into their laboratory full of costumes, puppets, songs and a dance duet here and there during MOT’s research performance.
