brothers

PerformanceDance

“brothers” is a performance by Angela Schubot and Robert Steijn in which they move through different altered states of mind and body. From a conventional perspective, ‘brothers’ could be seen as a dance in limbo, it is all about taking time and having an attention for details. From an ecological view, ‘brothers’ could, however, be a meditative event, in which the dancing body loses slowly the distinction between inside and outside. “brothers” deals with the uncultivated und untamed in and around us. For Schubot and Steijn “When the forest starts to speak in us, we lose our idea of what it is to be human. Voices do not refer any longer to the domain of logic and language. Emotions get the status of a daily weather report. Thoughts become monuments of resistance. One question remains: can we stay brothers in the eye of the hurricane, can we stay in dialogue with each other when life reveals the beauty of its unmasked face.”
