“Dog Days dismantles theatrical mechanics and the desire for entertainment, to re-claim the stage as a place of encounter between human and human.” —De Standaard

This complex, mathematical and ultimately ecstatic work features eight performers who surrender themselves to a single movement: the jump. Dutch choreographer Jan Martens’s conceptually rigorous and dynamically engaging The Dog Days Are Over has been captivating audiences across Europe since 2009. This astounding piece helps confirm Brussels’ continued position as a hothouse for compelling new dance.
