A dance performance (3+) about the world of paper
Award winning concept of the Nederlandse Dansdagen for a Young audience 2017
A cloud, a mountain, a kite, a teetertotter and a boat… made of paper?
Yessss! Three dancers are travelling through a landscape of paper.
They dance, crawl, slink and play… The paper flutters when they run, it rips when they walk right through it, it shrinks when they squeeze it. Different worlds take shape and crease, repeatedly.
In this world of paper what appears to be strong is actually very delicate and what looks fragile is instead strong … The dancers will share their dreams, fears, happiness and fragility.
Gaia Gonnelli is the artistic director of Dadodans. In her work she combines dance, theatre, live music as well as other art disciplines. Gaia Gonnelli uses very ordinary materials in her performances in order to stimulate the imagination of small children. Paper is her fourth collaboration with the composer Wiebe Gotink. Wiebe’s fascination lies in the fusion of dance and music; and the inexhaustible potential to play with it.
Première Sunday October 14th 2018 in AINSI Maastricht during the Nederlandse Dansdagen 2018
