German premiere
    Voetvolk (BE)

    We're Pretty Fuckin' Far From Okay


    The new piece by Lisbeth Gruwez premiered at the Festival Julidans in Amsterdam. In it Gruwez deals yet again with borderline experiences in extreme physical states and situations, exploring the phenomenon of fear. She and her dancing partner Nicolas Vladyslav explore the physical expression of irrational and apparently inexplicable fears, like fear of acknowledging one's own identity, fear of overwhelming emotions or fear for fear's sake, all of which the duo transforms into literally breathtaking movements and in the finest of detail. As breathing is one of the most direct outlets for our emotions, the dancers perform all variants of breathing in the border areas between tension and relaxation, vulnerability and steadfastness. Experience the German premiere of this piece at the Kunstfest Weimar!
