German premiere

Wednesday, 10th July | 10 am

In “Hush”, De Dansers find comfort in dance and music. A hand resting on a shoulder; a second voice that follows you where you go; a rhythm that you let yourself glide into like an embrace. Dancers and musicians meet each other at the boundary of dance performance and pop concert. Dancers become musicians and musicians become dancers. Guitar spins push performers into each others’ arms. Dancing bodies determine the rhythm of the music. “Hush” tells stories of attention and devotion. When you have the bear the world (on your shoulders), it helps not to be alone.


DeDansers is an ensemble of dancers and musicians from Utrecht, led by the choreographer and dancer Josephine van Rheenen and the composer and musician Guy Corneille. Their “dance concerts” are organic encounters between contemporary dance and live music. They tell stories with playful anarchy that will be understood by anyone. DeDansers creates pieces to counter the feeling of immovability.
