Sinking Sideways (Gent/Rotterdam)  

15 – 16 Nov 2024Dance / performance

In Cécile, three artists explore a world of ordered forms and silhouettes, navigating a system in which a single motif is repeated: the loop of infinity. On a mobile stage, the acrobats grasp the highly physical mechanics of interdependence, seeking cohesion in a perpetual flow of movement. As the stakes rise, they evolve through various stages of solidarity, adaptation, and urgency. Each repetition of the loop offers new perspectives, each movement a challenge. Cécile thus becomes a theatre where the complexity of the human being is played out in the face of constellations, in a show where the balance between order and chaos proves to be an art in itself.

Recommended for the whole family from age 10.
