and the city was a dream on the pulse of your feet
A group of fifty youngsters aged 5 - 17 skip through different parts of the city of Maastricht. At the Vrijthof square their culminates into a choreographic score that pull audiences and people passing by into a skipping outburst.
Everything always moves and occasionally flows. Measuring, counting, pushing and pulling, bodies find a way to navigate space and time, in full fantasy and hope. On the groove of their feet, a group of dancers is skipping the finite to find the infinite. By outlining trajectories of encounter and departure and passing through energetic fields made of memories and dreams, they become markers of change in an ever-transforming city.
and the city was a dream on the pulse of your feet was commissioned by the Nederlandse Dansdagen in collaboration with VISTA College CIOS Dans and local dance schools.
Presented on the 2nd of October 2022 at the Vrijthof square in Maastricht
