Kristel van Issum | NL

Share this show

There’s a bit of a revival going on in circle discussions. Choreographer Kristel van Issum [1972] is also placing chairs in a circle. For her performance-research Circles Of Women Holding Hands she is inviting three groups of ten women – between the ages of 35 and 55 – to have a group discussion with her. Topics will include the zeitgeist, hypes, trends, surviving and female solidarity. To kickstart the talks she will be showing movies by T.r.a.s.h., the famous Tilburg dance collective she was a member of for twenty years. Questions that trigger her: how vulnerable are we willing to be among strangers? How do we find recognition with each other? Circles Of Women Holding Hands will serve as material for a show by Kristel during Boulevard 2020. Language: English
