After the cancellation of the festival in march, we announced that Festival Cement, together with the makers, would be going on a journey this summer.
The contours are slowly becoming clear: under the name Expedition Cement, we are still bringing our selection of makers to you this summer at the invitation of and in collaboration with some of our very hospitable Brabant colleagues!
The program will be announced soon, but be sure to block July and August in your agenda. Then Expeditie Cement takes you along to Theaterfestival Boulevard and the Verkadefabriek in Den Bosch, Theater De Nieuwe Vorst in Tilburg and MU in Eindhoven.
Evangelos Biskas V
In Between is a solo dance performance in which choreographer and dancer Evangelos Biskas V works with the absurd and irrational character of his own dreams. He uses the dream images, moods and intentions to direct and shape his intuitive and instinctive physical approach. Experimental hip hop, contemporary and improvisation techniques are blended with each other, developing an authentic movement language.
Hélène Vrijdag & Timo Tembuyser
La Loba is a primal opera duet for the resurrection of woman and man. A musical score and a manifesto about the archaic - or fluid - duality of masculinity and femininity – of the human dichotomy. A pas-de-deux for voices, tenor and soprano, man and beast, a wolf opera crying wolf.
Marta & Kim
FASE is a short intervention of a public space, where we invite you to share an imaginary space together. Three performers explore mechanisms and systems with their bodies, merging tangible structures into ecosystems and social dynamics. What does it mean to be part of something? How do we exist together?
A gloomy light reveals slowly what appears to be a waiting room. Four mysterious figures emerge from the organic background. They are waiting. Waiting for what awaits them behind the doors.
Are they sick? Are they fearing something catastrophic happened? Are they imagining losing their loved ones? Are they projecting or remembering?
In troubled times it feels reassuring to say that we have solid ground under our feet. When you lose that ground from under your feet, the self-image gets out of balance. In Transmute familiar soil suddenly turns into quicksand and we slowly sink into a world unknown.
Unaware that the COVID-19 pandemic was on it’s way, Transmute was made just before it all started. In this new performance by Sandman, choreographer Sabine Molenaar and her four wonderful dancers deconstruct the reality we thought we knew. There where borders start to fade and confusion and chaos reside, one can also create an opening to rewrite oneself. Time, space and role seem interchangeable. To be or become the other. Between dream and quicksand even authenticity seems fluid.
Silke Huysmans & Hannes Dereere
Hidden in the Pacific Ocean lies the tiny island of Nauru, which was once called Pleasant Island. Today it has been exhausted of all natural resources. The island is home to refugee camps. Searching through interviews and conversations taped on the island, theatre makers Silke Huysmans and Hannes Dereere are trying to find some prospect. What possible future remains in a place that is ecologically and economically ruined?
Sonja & Hendrik
om de hoek woont een struik
om de hoek woont een struik is a performance for all ages. Through a self-built scale mode, theater makers Sonja van Ojen and Hendrik Kegels bring to life a miniature city. The day dawns, a garbage can blows over, a plastic bag entangles itself in the branches of a tree, the crocuses open. In this wordless spectacle we do not look at the people, but at all the other inhabitants of the city, such as the Maple, the Lampposts, and the Public Toilet.
Tamar Blom & Gerjan Piksen
You enter a white-lit tunnel. As you move forward, the wind starts to blow. The storm is
rising, touching you, surrounding you. Until there is nothing but the chaos and you.
The installation White Noise gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in an overwhelming sensory experience, which invites you to explore your own place in an endless chaos.
Werkplaats van de Woestijne
Oxygen Debt is a philosophical spinning class by Werkplaats van de Woestijne. Together with 25 other visitors you explore the limits of your own body. While you are moving and the oxygen debt in your muscles increases, you inevitably find yourself contemplating what is currently happening in your body. How does your heart beat, where does the blood flow, how do your muscles contract, what is breathing? Dare we see our bodies as a reminder of our impermanence?
When attending, make sure to change into your sports gear at home and bring your sport shoes and a water bottle with you. The workout is suitable for most people; you don't need any previous experience with spinning.
Oxygen Debt is a Over het IJ-festival production, in coproduction with Festival Cement.
