Eight acrobatic dancers, a stable wall and experimental rock music from the British band This Heat: that’s it. From this, the Brussels-based dance shooting star Alexander Vantournhout conjures up a utopia of what the human body could become as a dancing creature. His Foreshadow figures move across the wall, supported by each other’s shoulders, feet and knees, as nimble as geckos. One movement motif merges with another, the choreography is precise like a clockwork. Together, this ensemble works like the gears of a collective body that challenges the limits of balance, the effects of its urge to move, and the laws of gravity. Vantournhout’s versatile yet singular dance language incorporates elements of martial arts, circus and yoga. Each piece tries out something different: in this case, rigorously coordinated chaotic movement patterns. The aim of this choreographic feat is to explore what is just this side of possible in the delicate interactions between body and object.
