HEADS

HEADS is a contemporary dance performance revolving around five characters. In their hectic lives, full of impossible ambitions, there is little room left for reflection. They prefer to escape in sleep or take refuge in front of their computer. But for how long can they keep evading their doubts?

Anouk van Dijk’s work intriguingly combines virtuose dance with a strong theatrical concept. With tangible characters in an abstract setting, she creates powerful fairytale worlds in which everyday realities run smoothly into absurd fantasies. The human beings in the pieces are unenviable creatures, who miraculously however, never lose their optimism about a happy ending.
