- Cross-over performance
- Language No Problem
Fashion designer Irene Heldens and choreographer Dario Tortorelli push the traditional boundaries of one single art form and mix fashion with dance, poetry and music within the cross-over performance Rage against the dying of the light. Through a fashion show meets dance performance you will be taken on an emotional journey around the impermanence of time.
We all have our own inner world of feelings, philosophies, norms and values, dreams, fiers and love. But there is one thing we cannot escape from and that is the ticking of the clock. We all know it will stop one day but we don’t know when. The way we experience it will also define how we fill in our life. If we live fast or slow, if we push ourselves to the limit or peacefully enjoy every minute. Imagine yourself in an unpolished, raw and pure world of different emotions and experience struggle, resistance, exhaustion, acceptance, joy of life, enlightenment etc.
Poetically the performance is inspired by the poem ‘Do not go gentle into that good night’ from Dylan Thomas. The spoken version of the poem is compositional dissected and used to make the rhythm.
Let yourself be taken on a journey of the inevitable…
