Lisbeth Gruwez / Voetvolk - Lisbeth Gruwez dances Bob Dylan
The epoch-making songs written by Bob Dylan in the 1960s and 1970s led Lisbeth Gruwez to initiate an intimate dialogue with the great minstrel, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016. Maarten van Cauwenberghe plays Dylan’s historic vinyl albums live, openly weaving the threads of unprecedented natural complicities, of listening, gazes, gestures. The life experience alchemically shared in a communion of feelings and perceptions is happily far from any illustrative inclination.
“I look more and more into the possibilities of organic choreography. It has more poetry for me than representational choreography. It’s also a matter of thinking about what you have to do, instead of thinking about what is expected of you. To dare to stand vertical, no matter what”.
