If You Could See Me Now

With seeming casualness, If You Could See Me Now sets a chilled-out club dance into an intricate network of transformations and progressions, until everything blends into one dizzying wave-like motion. Rousingly, on the rhythm of a beat, you are drawn deeper and deeper into the performance. The three performers see no limits to what they take out of their bodies, progressing continuously, and changing little by little. From ecstasy to turmoil, from build-up to dismantling, If You Could See Me Now transforms into a hypnotizing, liberating experience.

After WHILE WE STRIVE and I will wait for you, If You Could See Me Now is the last part of a trilogy for three performers.



"In this liberating dance performance everything falls into place (....) It is no exaggeration to say that these kind of experiences will determine the future of the theatre." - **** Alexander Hiskemuller, Trouw

"Yet another brilliant work, with a progression so subtle that
its transformations are sometimes more tangible than directly evident."
- **** Francine van der Wiel, NRC Handelsblad

"Magnificent work that subtly plays with your feelings." - **** Mirjam van der Linden, de Volkskrant
