Starting from an unceasing looped sequence, the two performers morph and reinvigorate their movements.
They are connected in a groove, close to each other, while pulsating lights wrap around their bodies.
On the vibrant beats and with their rotating upper bodies, they create a physical vortex charged with sensual
energy, pushing the limits of human potential. Searing and evocative, its submerging power lets the experience
of the two performers and the imagination of the audience go in sync.
Together_till the end originated from the last scene of I is an Other, a performance in which Arno Schuitemaker took a closer look to the relationship between choreographer and dancer. He exchanged his position with a second dancer and, in collaboration with his artistic team, reworked it to a new duet where the potential of “togetherness” fully comes to fruition.
"It is an undulating cycle and seems to never want to end (...) It is transcendent." - Gérard Mayen, Mouvement
"Bodies, pulsating music and a sophisticated lighting design, by which some things - very excitingly - are unexposed, melt together in a hallucinatory experience." - Alexander Hiskemuller, Trouw
"In full concentration and with a powerful energy, the dancers throw themselves into their movements." - Marcelle Schots, Theaterkrant
