am I out? (2000)

Am I Out? was created in 2000 for the Russian modern dance company Provincial Dances Theater (PDT). The piece has four dancers, operating both as a group and as solitary individuals. Am I Out? is both violent and tender, and reflects strongly the difficult changes the country went through at the time. In that same year, PDT received the Golden Mask Award, the highest Russian theater prize, in the category of modern dance.

Since 2003 Am I Out? has also been performed by Anouk van Dijk's own company, anoukvandijk dc. The piece was successfully shown throughout the Netherlands, Russia, Poland, Hungary, England and the United States. The piece ended up becoming one of the characteristic pieces of Anouk van Dijk's repertoire. It combines an intense physicality and extreme movement with a strong theatricality and a clear concept.
