fABULEUS (Ugo Dehaes) (BE)


Tanz im August

“GIRLS” is the counterpart to “Women,” a piece that won Ugo Dehaes, the Belgian choreographer, great acclaim in 2011. Eight dancers, aged 34 to 56,  negotiated their position and reflected on the question of whether there is an ideal body image for contemporary dancers. In “GIRLS,” Dehaes has passed on their movements to eight girls, aged 10 to 14 years, who are generally considered too young for this type of choreographed work. However, the dancers reframe the abstract material to match their own perspectives, negotiating friendship and togetherness. In this bright and refreshingly serious work, the audience gets to know eight young, independent personalities, with all their strengths and vulnerabilities.
