I will wait for you
November 2, 2017 - Romaeuropa Festival - Rome, Italy
“An intimate and hypnotizing experience.” – ma culture, Helena van Riemsdijk
From beginning to end, I will wait for you develops in one seamless flow, ever-changing as it goes on – and on. The three performers surrender themselves to their movements, on their own yet continuously connected. Initially, the twilight of darkness and dim lights evokes only vague contours of their bodies. An incremental buildup that delays gratification, keeps them and the audience engaged in a perpetual becoming, making all logical sense of time evaporate. Escalating in intensity, slowly but surely, I will wait for you grows into a deeply visceral experience, a trance that lingers long after the performance is over.
