Jefta van Dinther / Minna Tiikkainen / David Kiers



50min Please note: This production involves the usage of stroboscopic effects. At certain flash frequencies epileptic seizures can potentially be triggered.

Imagine a place that defies your senses. Imagine rhythms that affect your vision. Imagine a room where the dimensions of the space appear resilient. Imagine the pressure of sound transforming a body into vibrations. Imagine light that makes you perceive darkness. “GRIND” offers this place – where bodies, light and sound create connections that affect, confuse and move.
