Spoon Spoon

Do you dare to fall into somebody’s arms? To jump together and not think about where you might land? To gather all your friends together and cartwheel through the living room? Or would you rather fall asleep in a cosy hug? It’s all possible in Spoon Spoon. In a world full of mattresses, three dancers and a musician search for that magical moment, when it feels like you’re floating and everything around you disappears. The stage is ready, now it only requires a little bit of courage….

 

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

 

With playful energy, impressive acrobatics and dreamy music, De Dansers creates 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 enthusiastic horseplay on dozens of mattresses is infectious and witty enough to captivate the attention of young and old for the entire almost-an-hour-long performance.” – Newspaper NRC

“No matter how recklessly the dancers move, the loving way they pick each other up afterwards expresses a sense of security. It is impressive how the dancers throw themselves and each other in all directions, while still seeming soft and playful.” – Theaterkrant
