Krisztina de Châtel: ‘Originally i-space was going to be about space, what else would you expect from me. But gradually it became clear that we were no longer talking about space but about the world.’ The performance i-space is a production in collaboration with the LOOS Ensemble. Peter van Bergen, the founder of LOOS, made new compositions especially for i-space.
In a set design by Niek Kortekaas seven dancers and four musicians find themselves at the mercy of conflicting forces that pull them in different directions. Thus the obeying of orders goes hand in hand with the listening to personal desires. Power and powerlessness, guilt and innocence, anger and control move the world.
