LANGUAGE (with English supertitles)
Vanja Rukavina / Het Nationale Theater
Vanja Rukavina and his parents fled the civil war in Sarajevo in 1992. The solo performance LANGUAGE is based on his life experiences and his love for language – and his Korean girlfriend.

Astrid Boons / Korzo Producties
In the poetic, abstract production Fields, the dancers become one with their environment. In an interplay of dance, music, and light, Boons creates images that stimulate all of our senses and tease out associations that slip away the moment we try to get to grips with them.
Tue 17 Sep – 20:30 – Toneelschuur
What we leave behind
Davy Pieters / Theater Utrecht
What lives on, and what falls by the wayside? In a highly visual production featuring sixteen talented mimes and performers, Davy Pieters zooms in and out on a long chain of big events and small actions. Set to a musical melange made up of acoustic sounds and analogue synth.
Thu 19 Sep – 20:30 – Toneelschuur
Conny Janssen Danst

REDO & HERITAGE
Shailesh Bahoran / Illusionary Rockaz Company
Two stunning examples of the incredible versatility of theatre-maker, choreographer and dancer Shailesh Bahoran. REDO is all about inexhaustible willpower and cast-iron discipline and features dancer Redouan Ait Chitt, who in spite of a physical anomaly has become an internationally renowned break-dancer. In HERITAGE, Bahoran uses break-dance and popping to go in search of his Hindustani roots.
Tue 8 Oct – 20:30 – Toneelschuur
Maas Theater en Dans
Five virtuoso dancers get extreme as they explore the boundaries of their physical being with brute force or cat-like agility. An explosive performance with and about break-dancers and in which film and theater, real-life and fiction seamlessly merge.
Wed 9 Oct – 19:30 – Toneelschuur
Or die trying
Alida Dors / Backbone
Dance theatre for dreamers and fighters. Choreographer Alida Dors makes the war of attrition that is life palpable through a combination of dance, film, performance and Thai boxing.

Shifft / Jasper van Luijk & Christiaan de Donder / Korzo Producties
Visual culture is more important than ever – in fact, we have become visual culture junkies. How is this influencing how we see one another – and ourselves?
Tue 22 Oct – 20:30 – Toneelschuur
Duda Paiva Company
A magical world in which what was once science fiction becomes reality. Through choreographic meetings – sometimes raw and sometimes poetic – between human and being, performer and puppet, Paiva creates a universe all of her own.
Thu 24 Oct – 20:00 – Toneelschuur
Pie in the Sky
The impressive production Pie in the Sky is full of breath-taking acrobatic tricks that are all about elasticity and belief. In an inflatable setting, three extremely strong acrobats and a musician are constantly challenged to defy gravity. Will they manage to find a way through this aerial existence?
Fri 25 Oct & Sat 26 Oct – 20:00 – Toneelschuur

Thu 21 Nov – 20:00 – Toneelschuur

A production that weaves dance and live music together – very tight. An explosive cocktail of suppressed rage and exuberant joy. Music as an infectious invitation to move – to shake off all the sorrow.
Thu 12 Dec – 19:30 – Toneelschuur
Sarada Sarita / Christiaan De Donder & Sedrig Verwoert
In ‘Q4: Quantified’ Sarada Sarita, leading light of Dutch New Way Vogue, calls for equality. The autobiographical duet ‘They/Them’ by Christiaan De Donder & Sedrig Verwoert tackles racism, toxic masculinity, and queerphobia. As always with Dansclick, the audience gets to know the makers by talking to them while enjoying a drink.
