The power of images

Plunging into paint­ing to cre­ate dance… The cho­reo­graph­er Her­man Diephu­is, an expert in embody­ing images, which he draws from sources ran­ging from ancient paint­ing to pho­to­graphy, likes to cre­ate stor­ies by anim­at­ing bod­ies with an ever so del­ic­ate grace. This duet immerses the audi­ence in the mul­tiple pos­sib­il­it­ies that exist in a rela­tion­ship between two people. We wit­ness a couple under­go­ing mag­ni­fi­cent trans­form­a­tions, the beauty of their encounter so mas­ter­fully expressed by the per­formers through dif­fer­ences and complicity.

Just as Impres­sion­ist paint­ing broke away from the clas­sic­al rules of the Beaux-Arts, the two char­ac­ters start from an aca­dem­ic exist­ence to grav­it­ate, in small touches, towards more every­day real­it­ies. In the pro­cess, oth­er facets of the bond that unites them are revealed, along with oth­er pos­sib­il­it­ies for listen­ing to the oth­er and oth­er ener­gies. A jour­ney from the nine­teenth cen­tury to the present day, in which the clas­sic­al dance evolves into krump, and where even Debussy becomes electro!
