Together with five dancer-acrobats, Vantournhout guides you along a route of reverberating micro performances, from short solos and duets to pointed group choreographies.
Usually, a bowling ball has only one function: to knock over as many pins as possible at the end of the lane. But what if you remove this object from its usual environment? SCREWS (2019) by Alexander Vantournhout, turns the relationship between the body and the object around. Objects are fastened to the body, either providing support or throwing it off balance, allowing gravity to be overcome or rather enhancing its effects. With the help of ice shoes, bowling balls, antigravity shoes and other objects, the dancers of Screws defy the laws of physics.
Sited outdoors and in unexpected locations, SCREWS plays with the relationship between body, object and perceptions and expectations of locations.
