Boons blows us away with an original, highly precise language of movement in her two intense and intriguing pieces Rhizoma and Vestige.
Astrid's work does not portray a role or depict an idea; rather, the movements arise directly from the emotional and physical states in which the dancers find themselves. As a witness, you are intricately engaged in the transformations that the dancers go through. In the poetic and abstract Fields, the dancers merge with their surroundings. Bodies, space and time seem to become transparent and penetrate through each other's boundaries.
"Boons' achterliggende idee van lichamen als versmeltende en transformerende energievelden valt wel te volgen, en haar bijna monomane aanpak is gedurfd"
