Fiftyone/fourtynine - Remy Tilburg & Emma Evelein
Performers / choreografie: Emma Evelein & Remy Tilburg
Introduction by Emma Evelein
The duet Fifty-one/forty-nine adresses the male and female energy in all of us, and the shifting dominance between the two. Two dancers express the subtle lines of the constant exchange in male and female energy. Their bodies become human instead of gender related, welcoming what both energies have to offer. In this journey through the range of all kinds of extreme and soft qualities, we fall back on our animalistic, sensitive, friendly, social and protective aspects in our personality, that everyone -no matter which gender- has within.
