To Belong is a dance performance about solidarity, about what it means to be part of a group. What brings people together, what connects them? Meditating together in silence? Or dancing together to phat beats? What causes people to care about one another? Why and when do they feel connected and when do moments of struggle occur?
Theater Stap’s actors are dancing the experience of being a member of a group using both pedestrian and poetic movements; But what happens if one falls outside the group, if one doesn’t belong?
Koen De Preter is both choreographer and performer. In his work, he has a fascination for performers of all kinds of ages and backgrounds. He strives for the human touch instead of looking for technical perfection. The use of eclectic soundtracks are a constant in his creations.
Theater Stap is a professional theatre company creating performances in which learning disabled people take centre stage. The performances’
artistic quality legitimises the company’s unique position within Flander’s mainstream theatrical landscape.
This performance is suitable for Deaf and hard of hearing.
Post-show discussion chaired by Dr Jason Price (University of Sussex) with Jonathan Meth (Goldsmiths University) will follow the performance asking the question: Who has the right to represent whom, and by what means?
