Forever (8+) I Festival Opening

«What if we were all immortal? Five dancers show death as an endless process of trial and error. Sometimes funny, sometimes poetic, but also very bloody, including a massacre.»

What if we all lived forever? Five dancers stage the desire for immortality. They die, but awaken to a new life. Nothing is final. Once they are killed by a snake bite, then by a tsunami and finally by the atomic bomb. The dancers show death as an endless process of trial and error. Sometimes funny, sometimes poetic, but also very bloody, including a massacre. The knowledge and fantasies of children form the basis for the performance. How do children think about life and death? About immortality? Can one deal with this topic in a playful way? Or does it remain a taboo? Tabea Martin collected material from children between the ages of 8 and 12 and danced with it.

Forever is the second part of a trilogy that Tabea Martin has developed on the subject of transience. The first part dealt with the transience of one’s own body, the third part will deal with the death of the Other. Tabea Martin studied Modern Dance at the Amsterdam University of the Arts and graduated in 2002. Four years later she completed her second degree in choreography at the Rotterdamse Dansacademie.
