Sweet like a chocolate
Wed 16 Jun ’2120:30 - 21:20Philipszaal
A woman dances with her shadows, alter ego, companion and voyeur. It follows her, guides her, dances and fights with her. The figure around her can be real, but also a creature from her fantasy.
Sweet Like a Chocolate is a rework of Double Points: Hell (2005), which was presented three years later at the international Tanzfestival NRW at the invitation of Pina Bausch. In the eyes of Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten, hell is the schizophrenic search for who you are, what your identity is.
The dancer goes through different phases and moods in the search for her own self, while she is viewed from all sides. What does this say about how women (should) be seen? Balancing between love, trust, female sexuality and violence, Sweet Like a Chocolate exposes existential questions.
Met: Maria Ribas (genomineerd voor een Gouden Zwaan voor beste dansprestatie voor haar rol in Sweet like a Chocolate) en Denis Bruno.
