ZERO by Pauline Roelants


(english version below)

Terwijl we in Valencia op de IETM (international platform for information exchange of production and presentation of contemporary performing arts) inspirerende gesprekken voeren en mooie plannen maken voor de internationale tournee van Burn in Barcelona, Valencia, Keulen, Parijs, Birmingham, Quebec, New York, krijgen we een klap in het gezicht van de Provincie Noord-Brabant.
Alle inspanningen en resultaten van de afgelopen jaren en de goede vooruitzichten voor de komenden worden niet beloond, De Cowboys krijgen nul.
Dat doet pijn, veel pijn.

We krijgen veel berichten, van dansers en performers, van partneres, van collega's van ons publiek.
Dat doet goed, erg goed.

Maandag zijn we terug en moeten we iets met deze spagaat.
U hoort van ons, hoe dan ook.

While we are in Valencia at the IETM (international platform for information exchange of production and presentation of contemporary performing arts), where we have inspiring conversations and where we make exciting plans for the international tour of Burn in Barcelona, Valencia, Cologne, Paris, Birmingham, Quebec, New York, we are slapped in the face by the Province of Noord-Brabant. All effort and results of the past years, and the solid and good uitlook for the upcoming period are not being rewarded. The Cowboys get zero.
That hurts. A lot.

We receive al lot of messages. From our dancers and performers, our partners, our colleagues.
That feels good, We are moved.

On Monday we are back, then we need to do something about this Spilt.
You will be hearing from us, one way or the other.

Challenging works, actual, and international.

Besides that, every evening there will be a performance of United Cowboys, directed by Maarten van der Put and performed by Florencia Martina.

Eeuwig Idool (Eternal Idol) this weekend in Tilburg by Pauline Roelants

This weekend - Sunday July 3rd - 3PM - Eeuwig Idool at On teh Move in Tilburg. /

Eeuwig Idool: a duet for and by Lucie Petrusova and Marius Pohlmann, inspired by sculptures of Auguste Rodin.

Choreographer Pauline Roelants

(****Theaterkrant): From that moment on, two forces are working; Roelants herself, follows the emotion she arouses with her music, searching, impatient, with an angry, provoking energy, that fails to focus and lacks direction. In the meantime, on the plith, an asthonishing other world is being told fully concentrated in a strong physical language , containing either dance and acrobatics. The intimicy gains power because of the contrast that Roelants applies. With the faces close to one another, the eyes aligned,, their hands find eachother faultlessly, she knows when she can hang, he knows where she wants to stand. Around them, hell may break loose. It is another mans hell.

link review (Dutch):

With Eternal Idol Pauline Roelants creates a bipolar environment in which the dancing couple seems to survive by persisting in their hope and commitment.
