"The duet of the dancers is classic, controlled, nothing is wrong - until the wall of bags suddenly moves towards them and eventually seems to implode"

About De Voorlopers


For Ivgi&Greben, De Voorlopers is a representation of powerful idealism and alternative paths in art and life. In the current era of negativity, they want to put the positive, liberating power of ideals in the spotlight.

Five dancers are the first to arrive on a distant planet where they will settle. There is nothing yet there. What are they going to do? How will they relate to each other? What values and ideals will form the basis of their community?

They create and deconstruct, there is abundance and also scarcity. It is a laboratory of shifting relationships between people, and between people and their environment: a testing site. Through the medium of dance and the wordless communication that connects all bodies, the audience is involved in the challenges of the situation in which the dancers find themselves.
