Choreographic talent Astrid Boons danced with Dansgroep Amsterdam, NDT 2, and the GöteborgsOperans Danskompani before embarking on a career as a choreographer. Two years ago, Korzo introduced this brand-new talent to the Dutch public. She overwhelmed the scene with an original, very precise and intensely felt movement language in the equally intense as intriguing duets Rhizoma and Vestige.
In Astrid’s work roles or ideas are not portrayed, the movement comes directly from the emotional and physical state of the dancer. The spectator is closely involved as a witness to the transformations the dancers go through. In the poetic and abstract Fields the dancers merge with their surroundings. Bodies, space, and time seem to become transparent and break through each other’s boundaries. In this sensual performance, the dancers lose themselves and seem only to exist as matter in dialogue with other elements. In an interplay of dance, music, and light, Fields creates images that stimulate all the senses and steal away associations that slip away as soon as you grasp them.
