two different backgrounds
one same journey
SAME same BUT DIFFERENT, follows a common day in the lives of two women who come from very different backgrounds.
They each have their own Utopia, yet are forced to share the same space, which is divided only by an imaginary line.
The work is a summary of 24 hours in which nothing important occurs and everything is forgotten. The dance piece blends fragments of ordinary gestures, which we are obliged to confront daily, with abstract movement. Throughout the work the feelings of discordance, confusion and stress emerge. Will the performers meet? Or will they remain alone in their individual Utopias? Is every day a repetition of the last, or will they each experience a new journey?
PINION & CROWN Ensemble
PINION & CROWN is an emerging Trilogy Dance Art ensemble, founded and directed by Sara Marin (IT/CH) and Griet Vanden Houden (BE/AT).
We search for situations, fractures and connections in society and life that we can express through dance. Supported by elements of theatre, music and multimedia, such as visual projections, we seek to explore and integrate ideas of intensity, technique, sensuality, speed, spontaneity, change of direction, irony and trust into our work.
