FROM THE JURY REPORT
After the Echo
The jury was taken by the visual poetry of this show and calls this a performance with impeccable scenography. It felt like arriving into a different world, a feeling of being delightfully trapped. Impactful, touching and, to quote one of the jury members: “freaking magical”. The physical performance is of a stunning quality, and executed by two strong performers that as a duo are very much in tune with each other. The surreal and witty atmosphere created in this performance is inspiring promise of a new generation of magnificent mime creators.
The jury was touched by this intimate performance. The clever use of music and physicality makes this performance a very layered and intriguing solo. The performer teases the audience, both letting them in and leaving room for mystery and multiple interpretations. All while beautifully transforming from vulnerable to full force. The jury was very impressed by the unconventional and urgent way of storytelling used to shine a light on both very personal and societal struggles.
This performance by a strong performer convinces from beginning till end with a smart, engaging show. The show starts out in slightly over-the-top positivity, yet soon small cracks appear in the shiny surface leading the audience into a dark and personal confession. The intelligent balancing act between sincerity and irony, puts the audience at the edge of their seat. An intriguing story about a search for healing, ending with a plea for taking better care of ourselves and world – while also leaving you with the question: did we just step in the same trap all over again?
A Pole Tragedy
In a surprising combination of elements, this performer creates a spectacle that is both powerful and intelligent. Text, movement and sound are brought together perfectly in a feminist swirl. The jury praises this performance for its originality. The performer mixes the classic and the modern, the personal and the long-told stories. This makes this performance a true conversation starter.
