Discover a new generation dancemakers and visit Fading Fire by Lois Alexander and Hope & Heavy Metal by Sigrid Stigsdatter. As part of the Rotterdam edition of the Moving Futures Festival these two performances are presented in one program with a short dance-film as a bonus.
Fading Fire by Lois Alexander is a work in progress that takes on the theme of fire. With the piece the maker confronts the audience with the complexities between nature and humans. Lois Alexander graduated at The Juilliard School in New York, USA and is currently based in Amsterdam.
In the physical and musical solo Hope & Heavy Metal, Sigrid Stigsdatter researches excisting ideas around the female body. How does a body deal with loneliness, anger and sensuality? Hope & Heavy Metal is a legitimate attempt to recover the mastery over the body. A soft call to smash patriarchy for good.
In between the two performances you are treated by a short dance film, curated by Cinedans.
