The central themes in Move-trek are power, lack of power, guilt and innocence, where the innocence of the human body seems to be crushed by the overpowering uniformity of the objects. But this is perhaps a false impression, for in Move-trek nothing is what it seems. Innocence proves to be just as treacherous as guilt, and constraints lead to unprecedented explosions of power.
Move-trek, combines dance and object theatre in an unexpected manner. Move-trek is a choreography for one dancer, Keyna Nara, and various moving objects. The performance forms the continuation of the collaboration between Elze van den Akker of theatre group Dimenzie and Krisztina de Châtel and explores the interaction between objects and dance. The music, which was specifically composed for Move-trek, is by Han Otten. He also worked with Krisztina de Châtel on the production Bewogen Bomen (2001). The objects are manipulated by object theatre performer, Meike van den Akker.
