Raaklijnen (2014) 

by Katrien Oosterlinck


In Raaklijnen three dancers explore the space between people. Within a square space filled with a variety of colourful geometric shapes, the dancers create a unique world in which a different set of rules apply. The dancers play with the distance placed between you and them, and between each of you. Is it the length of an arm, a foot or a finger? Are you close or faraway? And how does it feel to be close-up?

The dancers are your guides and invite you to share and divide the play space with them. In so doing, you experience Raaklijnen from different positions, each time with a fresh  viewpoint. Raaklijnen offers a taste of contemporary dance to children and their parents. A performance without words, yet rich with body language. Together with the dancers, discover the connections between people and the influence others may have on your own way of being.

Every performance can be followed by a free visual workshop (40').

Katrien Oosterlinck created Raaklijnen under the auspices of keski.e.space. The project is distributed by Theaterbureau Thassos.
