Warping Soul

Sat 20 Aug |

Andreas Hannes created a performance called ‘Warping Soul’ for Danslokaal 8 in 2020 that was selected as part of the European platform Aerowaves 2022. This year, he will perform this piece at Lowlands, which takes place from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 August. Lowlands is sold out, so unfortunately tickets are no longer available.

To warp’ is to bend or turn the direction or heading. In Star Trek, for example, starships enter the warp to travel. In this performance, the dancers emerge into a space that is in constant transition. At the mercy of external forces, they move within movement. Through the disorientation and organisation of bodies and space, movement becomes a dance of potential transformations and narratives.
