Theater and dance: Human Encounters The City - A skipping piece

Theater and dance: Human Encounters The City - A skipping piece


6 december 2019, 20.30 - 21.30 uur


The City is the first stage outcome of the practice of continuous skipping (as in skipping down the street).

Two performers enter the stage to begin a stream of infinite skipping, creating pathways and outlining geometric shapes, while repositioning themselves in the imaginary grid of a city.

Andreas Hannes (1987, GR) studied music and practiced film making before he started making dance. Graduate of SNDO – School for New Dance Development (2018), Andreas articulates his work through the notion of (relational, physical or metaphysical) distances. He looks at the tensions and interactions between different bodies, histories, traditions, disciplines and fields, in order to unfold and understand their meeting points and departures. Since 2017, he has been developing the practice of continuous skipping.

The City received the Moving Forward Trajectory Award 2018, that offers to one graduated and promising choreographer the opportunity to develop themselves and their work during one year. Moving Forward is an initiative of Dansmakers Amsterdam and Dansgroep Amsterdam, i.c.w. Dansateliers, DansBrabant and the Moving Futures Network. Tremble, a new skipping production, will premiere in November 2019.
